These clean eating stuffed dates make a fantastic snack any time of day!
Anyone who reads this blog on an even remotely regular basis knows that I love desserts way more than I should. For me, food is a major part of life, and I want life to be sweet. Is that so wrong?
But I can’t kid myself. If I want to lose weight, I need to give up the desserts the majority of the time.
While this is an ongoing battle for me, there is one more fact of life that I can’t kid myself about. The fact that I WILL eat dessert from time to time. It’s inevitable. Dessert happens. So I try really hard to make sure that whatever dessert I do eat, is as healthy and clean as possible. This recipe is a perfect case in point.
