Food of the Week: Dates

22 Mar

Dates

Dates are rich in vitamins B, C, K and minerals like potassium, calcium, copper, iron, iodine, magnesium and zinc and antioxidants. Also,they are loaded with fiber which helps regulate bowel function. They help lower bad cholesterol and counteract alcohol intoxication.

They are usually sold dried and are therefore very sweet so I use mine to sweeten almond milk or in desserts.

Remember… Eat Healthy, Be Happy!
