House Health Kick

So for the past few months the HoC family has been on a big health kick; gluten free, wheat free, push ups, chin ups..........fish tacos. You get the point! So I have stumbled upon some great food recipes for all those amazing things we love but that might not be the best for our bodies when trying to get in the best shape possible. It has nothing to do with animation, unless you consider animation to be delicious goodness, then I guess yeah it has everything to do with animation. Enjoy!

Raw Chocolate Truffles

MethodIn a food processor blend nuts and seeds until well chopped and mixed.
Add in dates and cacao and mix well.
If too dry, add a little water as needed to create a mixture that sticks together.
If too sticky, add more walnuts.

Thank you so much for posting those recipes (in addition to awesome updates, artwork, and fun ongoings of your studio!)

I recently have gone gluten/sugar/dairy free & it's been a bit of a struggle at points... especially because I have a sweet tooth. I will absolutely be trying these out!!

No Problem Katie! Funny I was thinking in my head when I wrote the post that "this has nothing to do with animation" LOL but really almost all of our artists are changing their diets, not sure if its the weather but we're happy to see good things come from it and I felt we should share!

Enjoy, the pancakes are really amazing so are the raw balls :P
