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.

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:-
