The holy month of Ramadan is almost here. It is the time to feel gratitude for just being able to enjoy the wonderful life, food, and relationships that make us. To enjoy the little things in life is necessary for your emotional and mental well-being too. However, a lot of well-being starts from the tummy, and keeping it happy and healthy is necessary as well!

People who fast during the month of Ramadan wait for the Iftar time which is a meal that is served to break the fast. And to do it, the healthier way, people break it by eating a date first. Dates contain a high amount of B-complex vitamins, which are critical for certain bodily functions, like transforming the food we eat into energy. Therefore, it makes it a perfect food to break the fast with.

To make the most of this beautiful month, celebrity nutritionist Pooja Makhija shared her own chocolate-dipped date recipe. The recipe she shared in a video on her Instagram looks yummy and so healthy with a gooey center filled with peanut butter!
