DATES

Description

Often times when we’re on a health kick or trying to lose weight, we refrain from sweet foods in our diet, but sugar cravings can be really hard to ignore. Well, dates are the solution to that! This chewy, caramel-like tasting fruit is rich in vitamins, fibre, potassium, calcium, iron, and antioxidants that reduce inflammation while supporting cellular health. As they’re high in natural sugar, they make an excellent snack for a quick burst of energy and a superb ingredient to sweeten up sauces, smoothies or oatmeal.
