DAO Weekly Hot List

Every week we give you a roundup of some of the coolest nutrition and workout trends.

Even though summer is over, I am all about this Halloumi life! Halloumi is nice and meaty without the meat and just thing the thing to get creative with and also still give that satisfying “mmmph!” This salad sounds right up my alley right up my alley with the mix of spices, chickpeas, eggplants, and DATES! 

If you are non-dairy or vegan, do not have FOMO. You can easily replicate Halloumi cheese with tofu – they have similar textures. Here is a recipe that uses that and nutritional yeast (which is totally the vegan version of powdered cheese)

The nice thing about a dish like this is that the cheese / cheese alternative is warm, so it gives a winter feel to your salad.
