Chocolate Balls!

With the theme of a lot of bloggers posting food pictures, here is dinner from last night. Followed by a Chickpea Moroccan Stew (sorry no picture) with chickpeas, butternut squash, carrots, zucchini, and some tasty spices to warm it up a bit.

Beet Salad with romaine, radicchio, heirloom tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, lemon, and honey

My little bowl of beet salad topped with a few pieces of chicken (so much for not eating meat...I caved)
and some delicious leftover Spicy Tahini Sauce.

Then chocolate entered my world...

And I started unbaking...

These little balls of goodness, made 3 ways, are the perfect way to end a long day.
The chocolate ones were walnuts, dates, raw cacao, carob, vanilla, rice protein powder, dash of salt, and cayenne pepper.
The other one are a food processed almonds, sprouted quinoa (to boost nutrition), agave, dried apricots, dried coconut, a dash of salt, and cinnamon. All of the measurements are "throw-in-and-taste" so have fun! Needless to say I had a bit of a sweet tooth. These definitely solved that.

Hope everyone has had a great Thursday... one work day left... then Halloween!!
