It was just over a year ago when I met this beam of light at the restaurant I manage. She came in all quietly for a bite at the bar. She wanted something vegetarian (obviously that peaked my interest) and that was the moment our friendship started. I am a strong believer that people come into your life for a reason and I am positive that she did. We had more in common than I thought as we touched on many topics. I asked her if she was on Instagram and she shyly said yes. I went on it and saw she had over 2400 followers and I was like WHAT?! I digress; it was our chat about recovery that really connected us – I knew God had sent her to me and I’m very grateful for it.

About 4 months after our first encounter I went on a major life trip. I travelled to become a certified yoga teacher and visited Bali, Thailand, India and England. We stayed in touch on social media and upon my return connected in real time. I taught a yoga class at the MaRS building and invited her to come along. 

As a treat, I made some superfood power balls for all the practitioners to enjoy post class. According to my dear friend @thelittleblackcoffeecup that’s where the idea was born for this collaboration.  She emailed me and proposed the idea she was working on #thingsthatgowithcoffee

She came over with a fantastic bag of coffee, a hand grinder and her camera and we got to work! 

As she snapped away I got messy making balls. It was such a lovely afternoon. Please go follow her amazing Instagram account @thelittleblackcoffeecup and go to her website to read her version of that day’s events.

  1. Hi! Wondering if these need to be kept in the fridge / freezer, or if you can keep them out on the the counter for a while (in an air-tight container). They seem to be made of shelf-stable stuff.. just wondering as I’m thinking of making them as a post-workout snack and would like to keep some with me while I’m “on-the-go”. Thanks!

    1. Hey Lauren, this will really depend on your current climate however I keep them in the fridge and if you are taking them on the go that shouldn’t be an issue! Hope this helps 🙂
