7 Ways to Enjoy Medjool Dates, Your New Performance Partner
You already know that fruit plays an important role in any healthy diet, serving up natural sugars in a world full of chemically processed, ‘added’ variations of the sweet stuff.

Dates—the fruit of the date palm tree, an indigenous plant to the Middle East, Africa, and Asia—have been around for more the 5,000 years. And the Medjool date—a larger, softer, sweeter variation grown in the United States’ Southwest—has some serious benefits for athletes.
