We as humans are eating sugar in everything from smoothies to breads to even salads. Why not try to control your sugar as much as possible with one little fruit?
Over the past two yrs I have been working frequently with dates, date sugar and date nectur. This amazing fruit works very well in my baking, sweeten oatmeals, savory dishes like BBQ, Asian, even in Paleo ketchup and steak sauces.
Making your date nectur syrup is simple. Just simmer dates in a water, cool, blend in your Vitamix and strain. As easy as that. Have no time, try: D'Vash necturs They make incredible natural organic sweetners guaranteed to fit into your diet. See attached link address:
For baking purposes, granulated date sugar has a 1:1 ratio to regular sugar.
Why dates? The sugar content is 1/3 less than honey. The higher fiber aids in blocking sugar content from absorption a huge benefit for people who suffer from blood sugar issues. Also not made by bees so falls into a Vegan as well as Paleo and the Whole30 diet. As well as, ounce by ounce more potassium than bananas!!!
As a resident of Orange County you have probably visited the Laguna Sawdust Festival at one point during the summer. This being one of our favorite summer events, my husband and I always buy a season pass so we can go back often to enjoy a glass of wine, listen to the great local bands and browse the art and jewelry booths. Recently I discovered that the Sawdust festival offers a variety of art classes all year round which include painting, enameling, metal working and fabric dyeing. As someone always looking for new ways to have fun and be creative, I decided to sign my mother and I up for a beginning soldering class with Erin Proctor, a jewelry maker and long -time Sawdust class instructor. During the 3- hour, class Erin led us step by step through the soldering process in order to make our own silver and gemstone ring. I enjoyed the class so much that I have already signed up for the intermediate class where we fashion a silver ring with polished sea glass.
These classes are great for birthday outing, date nights or just a fun evening out with friends! Check out the schedule at sawdustfestival.org and if they don’t have a time that works for you, give them a call and they will happily schedule your own private group class.
