If I had to chose one food to eat for the rest of my life, I would chose DATES!! 🙂 They are so sweet, have such a soft and goey texture and literally taste like caramel. Everyone with a sweet tooth is going to LOVE them. 🙂
Dates really are a SUPERFOOD with many health benefits!! Did you know that you could just live of dates without having any deficiencies?! (was quite surprised when I read that myself!)
Sadly, many people think dates have too much sugar and eating them will make them gain weight. That’s why I thought it’s time to clear that misconception.
Best Healthy Snack
Dates contain zero sodium, zero cholesterol and zero fat which means you can eat as many as you want and never need to worry about weight gain as that makes it literally impossible to gain weight from dates.
Dates are the greatest energy source due to their high sugar content!! However, even more important is that they also contain a lot of potassium (more than bananas) which helps you to build muscles and maintain your fitness levels.
Great Source of Fibre
Dates are full of fibre wich means the sugar in dates is entering the blood stream slowly while the dates are being digested -> no Insulin spike. Fibre has so many health benefits and is essential for having regular bowel movements too. Fibre helps your body to clean the colon and acts like a sponge which absorbs all the toxins and transports them out of your system. Yayyyy!!
Rich in Copper, Magnesium, Potassium, and Vitamin B6
Potassium and Magnesium are both essential in order to have balanced blood sugar levels. Copper is useful for a better absorption of iron, helps to form collagen and is important for a healthy nervous system. Medjool Dates are packed with these minerals and also have a good amount of Vitamin B6 which has many other health benefits.
Help with weight loss
As you can see dates are loaded with good stuff and contain no fat. They promote digestion, have tons of fibre, lots of vitamins & minerals and a perfect source of energy. They will regulate your blood sugar levels, balance your body’s ph level and help your body to build muscle strength.
Go ahead and get a big box of dates and make them your staple food. They prevent sugar cravings and will help you to lose weight naturally without restricting your calorie intake. :-))
