Nuts Stuffed Dates - Guilt Free Snack

Know What You Eat: If you follow a diet plan, no matter what kind, and you are starving for something sweet, I've got what you need - dates. They contain all healthy substances our bodies need and extremely low, almost zero amounts of fat and no cholesterol. Isn't it great - all we need + zero cholesterol? Dates can be chopped and tossed on a salad. They mix well with citrus, and are terrific with savory dishes. One trick to keep date snacking under control is to line up the pits as a visual reminder of how many you’ve eaten...as its way too irresistible specially when they are stuffed with your favorite nuts sauteed in less than a teaspoon of clarified butter and sprinkled with desiccated coconut and powder cardamom.
