DATE MATE!
Date Mate!

This sweet fruit is perfect for adding to savory stews, chopped up in sugary desserts, and even stuffed with surprising morsels of goodness. Dates are low in fat and are a great source of both fiber and potassium. They aid in digestion, strengthen bones, aid in curing intestinal disorders, and are fantastic for helping those suffering from anemia. When partially dried, they can be stored in a sealable container at room temperature for up to two months. Did you know you can add dates to your favorite salad? Why not? You can even have them pitted and stuffed with blue cheese as an interesting appetizer.
