HEALTHY (PALEO) DATE PASTE
Let’s talk Healthy (Paleo) date paste!
When I began following my PALEO path, I craved dessert recipes using brown sugar. I really felt like I was missing out. Sometimes I would compromise and buy a brown sugar substitute sweetener. But these sweeteners are unnatural and often very expensive. I remember the day I discovered date paste. I was so thrilled to know I could utilize a fruit that is so nutritious and use it to replace brown sugar and maple syrup. I love date paste on grain-free toast!
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF HEALTHY (PALEO) DATE PASTE?
This paste recipe calls for homemade date paste which is Paleo compliant. The paste is super easy to make and nutritious. Dates are a highly nutritious fruit that offer several health benefits. They are a good source of dietary fiber, which can help regulate digestion and prevent constipation. Dates also contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B6. These nutrients can help support overall health and well-being by supporting healthy blood pressure levels, improving bone health, and promoting healthy brain function.
In addition to their nutritional value, dates are also a good source of antioxidants, which can help protect the body against oxidative stress and inflammation. Some studies have even suggested that consuming dates regularly may help reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases, such as heart disease and cancer.
Overall, dates are a delicious and nutritious fruit that can be enjoyed as a snack or used as a natural sweetener in a variety of recipes.
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF HEALTHY (PALEO) DATE PASTE?
Date paste is sweet, sweet, sweet. You won’t need a lot to sweeten your dish or dessert. Sweetness is its predominant taste sensation. When used in baking the date paste tastes much liker brown sugar.
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH DISHES USING HEALTHY (PALEO) DATE PASTE?
Healthy (Paleo) Date paste is sweet. That’s its best quality! So any dessert or dish you create using date paste will require a wine with sweetness to match. If the dish or desert is just slightly sweet, you can include an off-dry white wine with dinner. If making a dessert, stick to wines with more sweetness like Tawny Port, late-harvest white, and even Canadian Icewine!
