A great way to give yourself a natural sweet treat is snacking on Dates. Their sweet, rich, chewy texture tastes a bit like toffee - especially the Medjool dates, which are my favourites. You can get dates, fresh or dried, all year long but the fresh dates are especially good in December and January. That is probably why I associate dates as a Christmas staple. Rich in protein, iron, potassium and vitamins, I like to use them in tea - stoned and finely chopped to add sweetness. I also use them in my recipe for Raw broccoli, crushed pine nuts, dates and ginger soy honey lettuce wraps. The perfect light supper and will keep you energised over the festive period. Sometimes its good to introduce an occasional raw food extravaganza, that’s full of flavour, to curb all the rich food over Christmas. Full recipe in Eat Clean: Wok Yourself To Health. Love, Ching x
