HAVE A SWEET TOOTH? LOVE DESSERTS? Don’t stress at all. I have something insanely delicious for you which is absolutely low in calories. It’s my favorite piece of yumminess whenever I am in need of that post dinner dessert. And guess what? With ingredients like DATES, COCONUT & ALMOND BUTTER, it’s one of the most energizing options for something sweet. Make a big batch of this and just snack on them before gym (will give you some instant energy for that sweaty workout), as a snack, with your favorite cup of caffeine or just because they are irresistible. If you love chocolate, add some unsweetened cocoa powder for that awesome chocolaty taste. You can even switch the almond butter with peanut butter, these balls will be as good anyway. Munch on them without any fear as each ball is as low as 61 calories.

No childhood is complete without those sweet memories of homemade crepes. My mother used to make these for us for breakfast and sometimes even as an evening snack. We were in love with that aromatic fragrance of vanilla while the crepes were made in our kitchen. Vanilla crepes for us were like a family tradition. And now whenever I want to re-live those days, I make them myself. They go well with fruit preserves or just dusted with some confectionery powdered sugar but I prefer them plain because off-course, I love vanilla. Its one of my favorite comfort food and goes perfect with a hot cup of tea or an Americano. Use your imagination and play with the flavors while making them. You can add a hint of cinnamon for that added flavor. After all, vanilla and cinnamon together can never go wrong.

Today’s earlier post of Avocados motivated us to cook something with the super food. Since avocados weren’t available in the Mevo kitchen, we thought to cook something different with the available super foods – Chickpeas & Spinach. After juggling with multiple ideas, we settled for “Spicy Chickpeas with Spinach and Coconut Cream.” It was something like a one pot meal and to our surprise the dish tasted delectable. The addition of spinach elevated the flavors of this dish to the next level. We added a little bit of coconut cream towards the end to really hit those spicy notes. The dish was delicious and we are doing it again sometime soon for sure. It was really easy to make and looked outstanding too. Check out the recipe and you must try this one for dinner today:-
Chickpeas – 1 bowl ( boiled)

Veggies are an important part of my dinner table. I love having them in any way, raw or cooked because they are so full of nutrients. This recipe of Roasted Vegetables is ridiculously easy to make and yet so delish. I usually make these veggies whenever I am in a fix as to what to be served during dinner as a side dish. There are no specific ingredient rules, just use whatever veggies you prefer. The balsamic vinegar can be replaced by a fresh drizzle of lemon or even some soy sauce. The choice is entirely yours. Serve it with your favorite main course, brown rice or just on a bed of quinoa, it will be as good any way.

The weekend is here. Yes, it is my favorite part of the week & am pretty sure yours too. Fridays are meant for friends, especially the closed ones. For weekends, we generally gather at one of our places and have a good time. Lots of food and music are the highlights of these evenings. Every Friday one person has to bring something special and new for all of us to munch on. Last week, it was my turn and as I came back from the office all tired and exhausted, I didn’t want to invest a lot of my precious weekend time in the kitchen. Instantly a recipe struck my mind, I had read about it somewhere and had always thought of making it. It was the perfect dish I could take to my friends and luckily I had all the magical ingredients in my refrigerator. Its the summer special GUACAMOLE & FETA SALSA.
