Fran, any sweet treat recipes to recommend based on Vesanto's recommendations?


So Dmitri, I wanna tell you one is one of my absolutely favorite things. It's so like, do be easy. And it's certainly not original, although I feel like I was doing this way ahead of magel dates, which are not dried fruits actually. And I pit it and I want everyone to know that when you are pitting your dates, you really need to look inside because every once in a blue moon you're going to see some black in there and that's mold and you wanna get rid of that. So then I will, and I carry these around with me, I will sometimes put some chocolate ganache in here, often some nut butter or a nut might dip them in chocolate and some hemp seeds. But I find that this is a, you know, a really helpful snack for me. And again, I'm gonna dig out my how not to die bites and get that information to you. But you know, that's what I would do also. So those are the sweet treats, but demetra, I think, uh, Vesanto's tofu bites would be great.
