Day 333- Nutrition Bite

Whole foods best
Molasses and honey may be slightly better than refined white sugar, but it's always better to eat whole foods, said Mark Kestin, dean of the School of Nutrition and Exercise Science at Bastyr University north of Seattle.

"Nutritionally, the general principle is the least processed the better. You're better off eating a date than date sugar, but probably better off eating date sugar than white sugar. It depends on quantity," Kestin said. "If we all went around eating whole sugar beets and sugar cane, you would not only get sugar, but fiber and nutrients."

Sugar Preacher's Experience
Dates are great! They can be great sweet substitutes especially if you are not getting any real dates in you life. Dates have been cultivated for 6000 years or longer and originated in the middle east. Give them a try!!
