It has given me lots of time on my hands to pick up a new hobby (as you know) and try new recipes in my kitchen! The other day I made super healthy chocolate balls. No sugar, no flour and no butter!
These are made from dates, coconut oil, cocoa powder and oats!
Since I have been healthy for 2 weeks now I am allowed outside again and I delivered some meals for few liquor stores last week! It was very appreciated!
We also took a walk in Central Park, watch my video below!
Manhattan is so empty, it feels so strange!!!
Nothing better than taking your make-up off and jumping into bed early with snacks and fall asleep to the TV!
