Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Moderation with dates is key, as they're full of sugar, however, in small amounts, they're rich in fiber, energy and sugar while aiding in issues such as constipation, anemia, need for weight gain and diarrhea. The dietary fiber helps move waste through colon, preventing the build up of LDL (bad) cholesterol. They're also rich in vitamin A and K, which protect the eyes, maintains healthy skin and metabolizes bones.As an alternative to classic peanut butter, almond butter contains a higher amount of essential fatty acids and contains the healthy unsaturated fats. Almond butter also contains water and fat solubable vitamins, which are needed to replenish the bodies' function and can aid in growth and development. 1 tablespoon of almond butter consists of 100 calories, 10 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 0 mg sodium, 4 g carbohydrates, 1 g dietary fiber and 2 g protein.
