Yoga+Music(notquite)365 – Day 75 – Fox Confessor Brings the Flood by Neko Case – The Recipe Edition!

Each Tuesday I’ll share an easy, nutritious recipe so you can join me in the home-cooked self-care.

SNACKS!

Today I’d like you to meet and make friends with the date. (Click the link for the nutritional information on this amazing fruit).

Dates are high in dietary fiber, low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium, and contain more potassium than bananas!

Dates are sweet, healthy, filling little treats and when they are paired with a lightly salted cashew or almond – perfection!

I keep a little container of dates and nuts in my desk at work and snack on them in class. My students are always interested in what I’m eating, but not once has one of them taken me up on the offer to try one.

I can’t even get J. to try one. He thinks they are ugly.

What do you think?

Dates! Better than bananas

Better than bananas

Please let me know if you have ever tried dates and what you think.

 What are your favorite healthy snacks? I need some ideas how to keep hunger at bay.

Please share your favorite recipes!

Today’s yoga brought to you by me! I am teaching my BTSA (Beginning Teacher Support & Assessment) classes to new teachers today and I’ve got to get myself ready.

Today’s music is  Fox Confessor Brings the Flood by Neko Case.  – This is my reentry back into listening to music. I’ve taken some time off – being sick made me crave silence. I guess I’m finally starting to feel like myself again.

  1. Thanks for sharing with others how wonderful dates are! :-)
    Have you made date balls before? Don’t know the real name but you’ve probably had the Ayurvedic ones. I make something similar and gobble them up. Dates, apricots, walnuts or another meaty nut, anise seed– in the processor they go and I roll them in coconut. I love the sweetness of the dates with the tanginess of the apricots.
