I grew up eating a lot of curry. It was a staple in my house to the point that it wasn't really anything special. It was the same case for my husband so when we got married and moved on our own, we strayed away from traditional desi cooking. We still enjoy curries when we visit our parents' house or are invited over to someone else's house. On a daily basis we usually like to change it up with more baked items such as baked chicken, fish, or burgers.
When I was at the grocery store this past week, I picked up a can of coconut milk for the first time. To be honest, I had no idea how I was going to use it! I grabbed it because I thought it would be an interesting ingredient to experiment with. Fast forward to a few nights later and I transformed it into this delicious Coconut Chicken & Vegetable Curry. My husband and I really enjoyed the coconut flavour and the fact that it was a curry, something that we don't enjoy often anymore!
Energy balls are popping up everywhere. They are the perfect size to take on the go, taste great, and are packed with lots of nutrients. I have even seen energy balls sold individually at some health food stores, but they can get pricey if you want to buy many for the week.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a dessert-loving dietitian, so I always need to have something sweet to satisfy my cravings. These coconut date balls not only satisfy my sweet tooth but are good for me too! The best part about these coconut date balls is that they are quick and easy to make. I usually make these on Sunday during my #mealprep to last me throughout the week.
Here's a quick video to show you exactly how to make them:
