Fun Fact: Seven Dates a Day Keep the Doctor Away

14.10.20 /

We’ve all heard of the proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” But #didyouknow that in terms of #healthbenefits, the #dates can rival the apple for the top spot? In fact, the Muslim equivalent of the apple proverb is “seven dates a day keeps the doctor away.” Islamic literature suggests that the Prophet Muhammad prescribed eating seven dates in the morning as a protection against poison and witchcraft. But the wellness payoff of eating dates go beyond mystical lores. Numerous studies solidify dates as a superfood (did you know that one date contains more potassium per weight than a banana?) Today, you can enjoy dates in many flavourful ways like these #StuffedDates from #SaffronAndMore. Premium Iranian pistachios and almonds are nestled deliciously inside plump Persian dates. If this is one way to eat nutritiously, we’re not complaining!

While I think of myself as an Aussie, I’m also proud as punch of my Iranian heritage. So much so, in 2013, I created a business built around the mouth-watering delicacies of Persia; bringing you flavours of the real Iran. I wanted to create a space at the table for the golden-petaled spice: Persian Saffron.
