We all know by now that sugar (the refined, processed kind) isn’t great for us. In fact, it’s not only just not great, it’s doing us harm. Luckily, we have a healthy, natural alternative that you’ll find tastes even better than the fake stuff. Yep, I’m talking about Medjool dates. This easy swap is full of health benefits that you’re missing out on by not kicking the sugar habit. There’s so many different ways to incorporate Medjool dates as a natural sweetener, which really makes them a total necessity for moving toward a more “real food” approach to your diet.

First, Let’s Talk Health:
What makes this an even healthier choice for me personally is knowing that Natural Delights Medjool dates were grown using sustainable farming practices.
Add them to veggie side dishes for a hint of sweetness! Think roasted or sautéed veggies and get creative. A favorite dish of mine to add dates to is by tossing in chopped Medjool dates with Brussels sprouts, apples and bacon, then sautéing them all together. The Medjool dates transform into a delicious caramelized flavor and it just brings the whole dish together. There’s a reason they’re called nature’s candy, after all.
