Ha ha…so I know what you may have thought this article was going to be about. However, I am not talking about dating me, I am talking about one of my favorite recipes!
A dear friend and client of mine came to visit me over the summer, just before I left for Australia, and I shared with her this simple, healthy, and yummy recipe. She thought we should call it “Date Me.” I thought that was brilliant, so we did!
I think dating and relationships in general, no matter what phase of one you are in with someone, are good motivators for making choices that support a FIT life. Afterall, we must BE what we want to attract. We must feel sexy and feel our best to attract, and then have the confidence to keep, someone of equal calibre.
I have been living in the “health” world for many years now, and therefore I have become VERY creative at making foods that keep my clients and me looking good, tasting good!
I recently made this recipe for a bunch of family members and guess what…it was a hit! It’s so important to have simple, yummy snacks and meals we can turn to throughout the day. We want to satisfy our salt tooth, our sweet tooth, and make sure we get plenty of variety.
Here’s a yummy treat that can be eaten as a snack in between meals or as a healthy dessert!
So please… DATE ME!
**You’ll need: 12 Organic Medjool Dates and 1/4 jar of organic, all natural peanut butter. (You can also use almond butter, or any nut butter, or unhulled tahini is good too)
-Slice each date down the middle and remove the pits
-Take 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter and stuff the dates with it
-Stick the dates in the freezer
It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s filling, it’s satisfying and guess what…it’s HEALTHY!
You don’t have to put them in the freezer, but so far, myself and all who have tried this prefer the dates and peanut butter frozen. It makes it creamier and just plain better! Keep them in the freezer for about 4-6 hours before eating.
If you want to add a little someth’n someth’n for a chocolatey taste, you can mix some organic dark chocolate chips in with the peanut butter before stuffing the dates with it. You can also just stick about three dark chocolate chips into the top of the date, into the gooey peanut butter to get the chocolate fix for less!
This is a perfect snack because it has a little bit of protein in every bite, which will help keep your blood sugar balanced, and therefore reduce cravings and sugar crashes.
Yuuuuummmmmmmm!!! Eat up!
