Health Benefits of Dates
Dates are an awesome natural sweetener to add to your recipes (not just chocolate sauce but also your energy bites, granola bars and more) instead of using artificial sweeteners or refined sugar.
As with other dried fruit, dates are lower in water, making them higher in calories and sugar than fresh fruit. Dates also happen to be loaded with fiber which is fantastic for a healthy digestive tract. Dates are also lower on the glycemic index than bananas, so they give you even more staying power and sustained energy. Choosing slow carbs more often can help you control your blood sugar and lose weight and keep it off!
