Dates and diets
Dates and diets, that sounds strange at first. After all, they are very sweet and certainly have a lot of calories. Dates are indeed somewhat higher in calories than other sweet fruits, but they are still particularly suitable for supplementing a diet. As already mentioned, dates contain important minerals and natural fructose, which is released more slowly into the body. This satisfies the craving for sweets for a longer period of time. In addition, they also contain more fibre and have a mild laxative effect. It is recommended to simply eat some dates instead of dinner. This will accelerate the effect of the diet.
Dates to fall asleep?
Enjoying Medjoul dates in the evening has another advantage that should not be underestimated: dates contain antioxidants, substances that ensure that free radicals in the body are bound without harming the body and are simply eliminated naturally. The natural antioxidants in dates are only part of the positive effect. They also contain the amino acid tryptophan. This is converted to melatonin in the human body and melatonin is the so-called sleep hormone. This means that if you eat a few dates for supper instead of your usual meal, you have the effect of a very stable energy balance. The body is supplied with essential minerals and trace elements, as well as fibre and the sleep hormone melatonin. All this happens without having to take any medication. The body is supported in its natural function.
Dates also contain calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B and potassium.
What makes Medjoul dates so special - you can buy dates in any supermarket. The answer is simple: You can buy commercial dates in the supermarket, but not Medjoul dates. The reason for this is that harvesting these special dates is particularly time-consuming and can only be done by hand. The fruit is significantly larger than other dates. It has a more harmonious, pleasant and particularly individual taste. Anyone who likes to eat dates will love Medjoul dates from Palestine. Not for nothing are they commonly called the queen of dates.
What else can you make from dates?
Dates have a very special form of sweetness. That is why especially vegans use them to make an alternative chocolate cream. Pure cocoa powder, which is vegan by nature, is used for this. To add the appropriate sweetness to the slightly tart taste, dates are then added. You can soak them in water for a few hours to make them easier to process and then mix them together with the cocoa powder and some liquid in a blender to make a chocolate cream. If you like it nutty, you should also soak the cashews and mix them in. You can then vary the degree of granularity by mixing the cream for longer or shorter. However, when storing the cream, make sure that it is always kept cool. Although it is healthy not to use preservatives, the food will spoil more quickly without refrigeration. Again, it is possible to freeze the cream. You can simply wrap it in an airtight container and then put it in the freezer. The cream thaws easily overnight and is then good to eat without further treatment.
Our dates come directly from the farmer without preservatives, added sugar or sulphur. They are harvested, sorted and dried directly under the sun of Palestine & Jordan. They are a healthy food that is great for vegans and vegetarians to replenish their much needed supply of minerals and antioxidants. Dates are a great snack and can replace a chocolate bar or two. As part of a conscious diet, we recommend eating up to three dates in the evening before bed. This is because dates contain a substance called tryptophan, which is an amino acid that is converted into melatonin in the human body. This promotes sleep and calms the nerves. In this respect, dates are also nerve food. Dates have a mild laxative effect. They are therefore also suitable for the natural regulation of digestion and, due to the many minerals and trace elements that are immediately available in the dried fruits, they are a healthy food source to spice up the diet.
Besides these nutrients and fibre, eating dates also has a positive effect on digestion. So especially sedentary jobs or jobs with little movement can benefit from them.
Children can also eat dates well. They like them very much because of their intense and sweet taste. You can make smoothies out of dates and for dinner they harmonise very well with cheese and nuts.
Dates can even do something for your health through the antioxidants they contain by binding free radicals and allowing them to be eliminated naturally.
