Originally grown in Morocco, medjool dates offer a sweeter and softer alternative to deglet noor dates, the variety of date most abundantly grown in California. Though they pack a heft caloric punch -- a serving of just three dates contains 199 calories -- medjool dates also have minerals, vitamins and fiber that boost their nutritional value. Use medjool dates in recipes, or eat them on their own for a healthy snack.
Benefits: reduced risk for heart attacks, strokes, and vascular disease.
