I’ve realised that if you want to change your eating habits, you need to have good choices to go for when the cravings hit you and this Date Truffle is everything you asked for: sweet , chocolatey , full of good fats, and very tasty!!!

The recipe only requires a few ingredients and it is 100% vegan. Go ahead and give it a try. I’m sure you won’t regret!

  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Place almonds in a food processor; process until finely ground.
  2. Add dates; process until finely ground.

Sea Food

Spicy Tiger Shrimps with Onion Mayonnaise

I’m a big sea food fan, and so is my fiancé and last week we had these very well prepared shrimps in a restaurant in Waregem and I immediately decided to make my own inspired version at home.

But when it comes to sea food, quality really matters specially if the star of the dish is the shrimp, so while we were still having lunch he came up with the brilliant idea of going to his best friend’s fish store, Viscentrale  to buy some quality Tiger Shrimps.

And I must say I have no regrets! Good sea food doesn’t need much to taste great as long as it’s fresh and from a reliable source and the ones we had were a hit and I will definitely make them again!

Okay, I love these cookies!!! Yes they’re low carb, made with sweetener, but these can fool anyone if you don’t tell them what’s in there! They are crispy and buttery, with a hint of dark chocolate… When you can have those healthy and delicious cookies I see no pain in going healthy! Trust me on this one and run to the kitchen to make a batch, and all I hope is that you can resist not eating them all at once!
