Let’s talk 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 DATE PASTE?

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!  But think about it…do you want all that added sugar?  Maybe it’s best to stick to tea!

WINE TIPS:
ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Paleo, Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
