Dates offer many health benefits and are good to eat fresh or dried – but are they OK to eat on the Paleolithic diet? In this article we will review if these fruits are safe for Paleo lovers to enjoy.
Yes – Dates are safe to eat on the Paleo diet.
Why Are Dates Paleo?
Dates are Paleo friendly because they are an all natural fruit that has existed for thousands of years and can be eaten with no preparation. They are proven to lower cholesterol, improve bone and skin health and aid in digestion.
They are also high in Iron, B1, B2 and vitamin C which means you can likely skip your daily supplements. It is easy for the body to digest Dates and they can be combined with other healthy ‘super foods’ for a super healthy meal.
How to eat Dates on Paleo
Many people are not familiar with Dates since they are not a staple food in the American diet. We think the best way to eat Dates is dried with some nuts or even mixed in with trail mix. Eating them fresh is also a tasty option – all you have to do is rinse them in the sink and they are ready to eat.
Our Final Say
Dates might not be the most popular food but they are Paleo safe and a healthy choice. This fruit can be eaten fresh or dried – both options are OK on the Paleo diet. Our favorite way to eat them is fresh from the farmers market or dried with nuts.
If you are looking to branch out from the traditional Paleo fruits give Dates a try fresh, dried or mixed with a salad.
