Often, I wake up with crazy neck and shoulder spasms that make it hard for me to lift my right arm and control it, plus my body always hurts.  So, to pick myself up with a little treat and also for the added benefits of raw coconut, dates and fig, I created a Raw Macaroon Recipe that you can whip up in literally 2 minutes!  They are all natural and beyond delicious.

Recipe: Servings 1

5 dried figs 
7 dates (pitted)
1/4 cup raw dried coconut
1tsp Coconut Nectar or Honey


pinch of nutmeg, cinnamon & cloves

Soak dates to soften for 1 minute in warm water. Place all ingredients into your food processor.  Chop and Grind until ingredients are forming clumps together.  Form into macaroons or what ever shape you want.  You can eat them right away or place in the fridge to set.  

Health Benefits:

FIG: Dried figs are an excellent sources of minerals like calcium, copper, potassium, manganese, iron, selenium and zinc. 100 g of dried figs contain 680 mg of potassium, 162 mg of calcium, and 2.03 mg of iron. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Copper is required in the production of red blood cells. Iron is required for red blood cell formation as well for cellular oxidation.

DATES:The significant amount of minerals found in dates make it a super food for strengthening bones and fighting off painful and debilitating diseases like osteoporosis. Dates contain selenium, manganese, copper, and magnesium, all of which are integral to healthy bone development and strength, particularly as people begin to age and their bones gradually weaken. Side note:  They also increase your sex drive, which could explain why I'm so excitable after eating these...

RAW COCONUT: Supports immune system health: it is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasite Provides a natural source of quick energy and enhances physical and athletic performance

My theory:  Our brain senses pleasure through food and our cells receive their nutrition.  While having spasms, it usually creates a headache with it because its a counter affect of the nerve activity.  By making a sweet treat that is easily digestible, pleasurable and has all the added health benefits, it aids in not only helping your body to fix the problem it also changes your mentality because of the pleasure factor. So, before I reach to take pharmaceuticals, I make something like this, vaporize some cbd canabanoids and within an hour or so of eating it my symptoms are usually reduced by 30 - 40 % and become manageable.  Are they completely gone and I feel good as new, NO! But the goal is to have things be manageable which doesn't mean perfect but at a level that you can function.
