Caramel Fudge Squares

Dates are a wondrous food for their health benefits, taste and versatility. Truly nature's candy, dates are an incredible snack alone or with other fruit, celery or cucumber sticks. They are also fantastic additions to smoothies, desserts, trail mix, cereal, as a sweetener in salad dressings, chopped into salads, and more.

The Health Benefits of Dates

Dates are an ideal food for improved energy and brain function. They are a good source of vitamin A & B-complex and they are rich in minerals such as iron, calcium, manganese, and potassium. Dates are known to help build bone and muscle strength and have been used for thousands of years by athletes to improve physical endurance, agility, and stamina.

Dates contain anti-inflammatory and anti-infective properties which make it an excellent food for those who suffer with chronic infections and auto-immune disorders. They also help to control heart rate and blood pressure which offers protection against strokes and coronary heart diseases. Dates contain an easily digestible fiber that has been found to help prevent colon, prostate, lung, endometrial, breast, and pancreatic cancers. They are also known to help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, relieve constipation, improve anemia, and prevent macular degeneration.
