Several months ago, I did a Facebook Live on how to bust the after dinner sweet tooth. One of my go-to’s is this “Oreo” that’s packed with sweetness without the refined sugar and yucky ingredients. Packing a healthy punch with minerals like magnesium, this quick fix is sure to satiate your sweet tooth.
All you need is a date fruit and a tablespoon of almond butter (preferably a kind with no added sugar or sweeteners – I love Justin’s Brand)
Simply slice open the date and add a scoop of almond butter in between to create the perfect, sweet-tooth stating snack ever.
Not only does this quick snack nix the sweet tooth, it also hooks you up with a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, and protein (protein comes from the almond butter).
According to Organcifacts.net, “The benefits of dates include relief from constipation, intestinal disorders, heart problems, anemia, sexual dysfunctions, diarrhea, abdominal cancer, and many other conditions. Dates also help for a healthy weight gain. They are rich in several vitamins, minerals, and fiber. These delicious fruitscontain oil, calcium, sulfur, iron, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, copper and magnesium, which are all beneficial for health. Some health specialists have said that eating one date per day is necessary for a balanced and healthy diet.”
So next time you’re feeling the urge to grab a handful of sugary snacks, make yourself the healthy gal’s “oreo” and know you’re doing a body good!
