How did Dig In come to be?
Dig In began three years ago at Blue Moon Evolution in Exeter, New Hampshire. As the story goes, Kath, the owner, saw a sweet little girl with a smoothie mustache one summer day. She got to talking with the girl’s mother, Tracey, about their shared passion for healthy eating and their desire to bring a community resource to the seacoast; Dig In was born.
Dig In first launched under a different name, and was focused solely on the seacoast. After a few years and a crazy amount of work, this four-person, female-driven team has brought Dig In to the next level; it now allows anyone in the world to sign up for its online program.
The team behind Dig In was so kind to share one of their quick and tasty snack recipes… I just made these and I’m hooked!
Dates with Nut Butter
1). 6 jumbo Medjool dates, pitted and cut in half
2). ½ cup your choice of nut butter: almond, peanut or cashew
3). Maple syrup for drizzling
4). Sea salt, to taste
– Lay halved dates on a plate. With a butter knife, carefully spread nut butter on the inside of each half. Drizzle with maple syrup and top each piece with a sprinkle of sea salt.
It’s easy, tasty, and I can’t get enough!
