The Date Palm nourished and supported the lives of our earliest ancestors. It was known as the "Tree of Life" and revered as a sacred tree to desert dwellers who had hundreds of uses for date palm materials besides eating the fruit. Dates are common in the warm regions of North Africa. Dates were the #1 staple food for many thousands of years and still are in some areas. Dates can be eaten fresh and juicy or after they have been dried slightly while hanging on the tree. In this stage, they can be stored and they will remain good for many months. Traditionally, many dates were stored and eaten in those months when other food was not available.
Dates are extremely nutritious, higher in potassium than bananas, also rich in iron, calcium and vitamins. If you are looking to balance your acid/alkaline state, dates are more alkaline than almost any other food. One of the stumbling blocks to the raw food diet can be just not having enough high quality food around. So often fruit bought at the store can be disappointing because it was picked before it was totally ripe. Dates are normally harvested fully ripe with full sugar content, and are available most months out of the year.
For those aspiring to the ideal of the raw vegan diet, dates are your best option as a sweetener. With 60% pure sugar, they are the most concentrated source of sugar found on any plant. They make just about any raw food creation taste better, especially desserts and smoothies. Dates are a crop which lends itself easily to natural growing methods. There is never any real need to use chemicals to grow them. Finally, the best thing about dates is their great taste! Enjoy!
