Yesterday I ate:
9:00 . . . juice of 10 valencia oranges
1:00 . . . handful of medjool dates
3:00 . . . juice of 12 valencia oranges
4:00 . . . 4 bananas + 8 medjool dates
6:00 . . . a few pickling cukes + 1 lb. grape tomatoes + 10 medjool dates
7:00 . . . still snacking on dates, tomatoes, cukes
Play: ballet and stretching
My friend Yogaranka pointed out to me that she found out that some places might be soaking their dates in sugar water to keep them moist and sweet. So when I went back to this particular middle eastern bakery/restaurant to get some more medjools, I asked and they assured me that their dates are pure and not treated with sugar or anything else, which I already thought was the case. But I guess it doesn't hurt to ask if you are unsure.
Not that it would kill you to eat a few dates laced with sugar. But OK, processed sugar IS a poison.
But I have to say that these dates are OUTSTANDING! When I have bananas and dates together they taste like a moist vanilla cake with caramel frosting. I wish everyone could know how wonderful this way of eating and life is. It is so delicious, so simple, and wonderful on every level of your being. And you get to eat dessert all day long! That's lots of love. ♥
