Here are lemon protein squares that are delicious and super easy to make. I call these anti-stress lemon squares for three reasons:
- No stress in the kitchen! Since they are raw, no heat is involved and all that is required is a food processor. You can even do this simply with a bowl, and mash everything with a fork if you don’t have a food processor. Since these are vegan squares, ingredients are minimal (and better for you).
- No stress for the body! Since all the ingredients are all-natural, plant-based, and plant powered, there is no nutritional stress placed on the body and nervous system, and energy required for digestion is minimal (compared to ingredients that are toxic for the body).
- Added anti-stress adaptogen superfood “reishi mushroom” possesses anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant properties which helps to alleviate stress in the body.
Every single ingredient has a beneficial effect on the body, making this an energizing snack, dessert, or even breakfast that is nourishing to your body. The Sunwarrior protein offers complete plant-based protein (meaning all amino acids are present in a serving) to help balance blood sugar levels, keep you full longer, and energize the body.
The coconut oil is a top quality oil for brain and heart health. Maple syrup (in moderation) is a mineralized natural sweetener. Ginger helps to reduce inflammation while nutmeg aids digestion. Fresh lemon juice and grated lemon rind helps to neutralize free radicals and increase digestion. Make sure to always use a pure vanilla and not an artificial flavored vanilla that has added sugar.
