I now equate dates with the other, hideously gross "D" word.

Ew.

Double ew.

Oh yeah and I hope she feels better, too.

I like Medjool dates stuffed with Macadamia butter :D

A couple of months ago I also chopped some up and baked them into a banana bread recipe. Mmmmmm - they went gooey and sticky and some went a little bit crunchy from the sugar. YUM!!!

Ewwww. I hate chewy things being snuck in with regular, normal, good food. Namely bread. Raisins and dates need to be left alone.

i don't like dates. i don't like sweet food much at all any more, unless i'm really in the mood for something. i get especially disappointed by vegan cakes that are supposed to be chocolatey and turn out to be mostly dates. :p

p.s. get well soon stickydate!

i've had quite a few vegan 'chocolate' cakes where the people making them have used loads of dates, presumably to help bind them. it's just not on is it :eek: ;)

Thanks Gorilla - I am feeling better today :)

Mmmm I love dates in bread - date and walnut bread, banana date bread mmmmm. I LOVE sticky date pudding, but I agree that dates in chocolate cake is wrong. My choccy cake is dateless too :cool: :)

I hope this happens to me. Probably means I should stop buying vegan sweets.

Yeah, like I still like my sugary tea and hot chocolate or the odd treat, but it's much better than it was. I think not being able to have whatever really helped. Now if I want a sweet, I have to make it myself or go out and buy it. By then, the craving has gone away.

yeah, it seems since i went vegan i like fewer sweet foods. when i was younger i used to love sweet things but now i don't eat them as often. i still like most fruit and vegan cake, ice cream etc. just not as much as i used to.

I forgot to mention that my sweet cravings got replaced with fat and salt cravings (chips, crackers, french fries, white bread, etc). :rolleyes:

I only understood 18 out of 21 of those words.
