What can I make with Dates?

Before I began the journey known as Paleo I didn't even know what a date looked like! Now I have to practice self control because they are so sweet and delicious! 

The date has been grown for centuries.  Each date is rich in vitamins and minerals, they are an plentiful source of fiber and energy.  Best when used as a healthy Paleo snack, dates have no fat, sodium or cholesterol and are rich in fiber and potassium. To read more about dates and Paleo, the Paleo List writes a nice article describing the benefits of dates. 

I searched the web for some recipes containing dates. Here are the top ten that I want to try.  If you have a favorite Paleo recipe with dates feel free to share it with me!

1.Truffles from Paleo/NonPaleo

2.Brownies from Elana's Pantry

3.Banana Date Bread from The Lucky Penny

4.Date bars from Living Paleo

5.Bacon wrapped Dates from the Healthy Housewife

6.Bone in Short Ribs from Action Jacquelyn

7.Chicken Bastila from The Clothes Make The Girl

8.Caramelized Onion, Date and Avocado burgers from The Lemon Nest

9.Chicken, Date and Rosemary Meatballs from Brooke's Kitchen

10.Whole30 Sriracha at nom nom paleo for those who love hot and spicy!

I will be posting the progress as each one is made.

What I learned

Even though dates are natural they are filled with natural sugar and should be eaten in moderation. As Christians we have been given a life of freedom. Freedom to make choices, freedom to worship, freedom from the law.  In this freedom we have also been given the command to be careful. 

In our Freedom-Be Wise
Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, Ephesians 5:15

In our Freedom -Be Considerate
Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother or sister to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause them to fall. I Corinthians 8:13

In our Freedom- Be thankful for grace
What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! Romans 6:15

In our freedom-stand firm
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

Live in the freedom that Christ offers to us.
