Aaah, simplicity! Freedom from complexity… the state of being uncomplicated… that my friend is music to my ears. Dates are highly nutritional and considered by many to be one of nature’s perfect foods, this being the fact, so if this is true, why do I feel so guilty when I eat them?! To me they are like candy. If you are new to dates, they taste almost like honey. They have a sweet taste, but not too sweet. Some describe them as having a rich buttery flavor with a hint of caramel. There are many different types of dates but the one that I am talking about and using today is the Medjool date. They are by far my favorite.
Dates are a very rich source for potassium. They are also a very good source fo iron, niacin and vitamin B12. In addition, the fiber content in date fruit is relatively high. A word of caution, yes dates are sumptuous and yes dates are good for you but they are high in natural sugars, so eat them in moderation… oh, and brush your teeth after eating them due to those sugars and because they are sticky. “Yesssssss mom…” hehe I know, I know… but it is my job to look out for you. :)
Look at the thick gooyiness in the photo to the left… food porn! That is what we have going on here! haha Enjoy and have a wonderful day!
