I set foot into the newest foodie venture at Emirates Towers on a hustling work day, and the place was packed with lunchers. The café has an affiliative vibe and is flooding with natural lighting, and the staff (despite the grueling rush-time) seemed genuinely sweet and enthused with what the menu had on offer.

Eating is a part of living, but do you live to eat, or eat to live? Much like an engine that gives its optimal performance when given the highest quality of fuel, our bodies and ultimate lifestyles are very intrinsically linked to the type of food we consume.

Do you suffer from an incurable sweet-tooth and and always find yourself reaching out for a handful of naughty treats? I have a super quick and easy recipe for you… and its not even close to being naughty!

All you need is dates and coconut, and stored in an airtight container in the fridge, these little treats will last over a month (unless you gobble them up beforehand ofcourse!). Best of all this recipe is gluten-free, made of all-natural ingredients, and is high in fiber. You get the jazz… super healthy, super quick without the hefty price tag to boot!
