A rich mixture that’s not too sweet but just enough to be enjoyed as a warm after-dinner treat.

Serves 6

Ingredients
1/2 cup pitted dates
1 cup uncooked brown rice
4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon NOW Real Food® Organic Vanilla Extract*

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped NOW Real Food® Almonds*

  1. Place dates in a bowl and pour 1/2 cup boiling water over them.
  2. Let soak 15 minutes, then transfer dates and water to a blender and puree until smooth to make a date syrup.
  3. Meanwhile, bring rice and almond milk to a boil in a medium saucepan.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until rice is cooked and has absorbed most of the almond milk, stirring occasionally; about 45 minutes.

What's Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil

Grown on small organic family farms in Ecuador, our Red Palm is certified Organic, Non-GMO and Fair Trade. Nutiva partner with Natural Habitats™ to ensure that no deforestation or habitat destruction results from the growing or harvesting process.

Nutiva’s unrefined red palm oil has a mild carrot-like flavor, with a rich, buttery texture. Some red palm oils have a strong or harsh flavor, however, Nutiva’s proprietary cold-filtration process removes any strong flavor while retaining the nutrients. It’s ideal for soups, sauces and sautéing. It also turns regular popcorn into delicious (and healthy!) movie theater-style popcorn.

Nutiva is excited to be launching a full line of new red palm oil products to provide even more ways for you to integrate red palm into your diet.

Natural Habitats seeks to empower and support farmers. Committed to the sustainable production of organic and fairly traded products, they also contribute to social development in the community through education and nutrition programs. They allocate 1% of sales to social and environmental stewardship programs. Projects have included building a small health clinic and providing sports uniforms for the local youth.

The region in Ecuador where Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil is grown has numerous small family farms, averaging 10 hectares (about 25 acres), interspersed throughout the regional forests. These subsistence farms were planted many years ago and are now being worked by second and third generation farming families.

Palm oil grown in Southeast Asia is associated with destruction of rainforest and orangutan habitat. It is important to note that in addition to the work we do with Natural Habitats, orangutans do not live in Ecuador and Nutiva’s red palm does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction.

Nature's Way DIM-plus Improves Estrogen Metabolism

Nature’s Way DIM-plus™ contains diindolylmethane, a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale.

Nature’s Way Diindolylmethane (pronounced: dye-indo-leel-methane) has unique benefits that support the activity of enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism.

Diindolylmethane or DIM for short, as well as indole-3 carbinol (I3C) are plant nutrients found in broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and other related vegetables. Research has shown that DIM improves the way estrogen and other reproductive hormones are metabolized in the body. However, the research on I3C has been mixed, with some studies showing benefits and other studies having negative results.

As a dietary supplement, Nature’s Way DIM Plus provides the exact compounds that are found in vegetables. It’s fully active and ready to be absorbed, while IC3 must first be synthesized into DIM after it’s digested. When combined with vitamin E and phosphatidylcholine, DIM is highly absorbable. IC3, on the other hand, has an unpredictable absorption rate. The stability of IC3 is very low compared to DIM’s, too. Some research has shown IC3 may cause certain side effects, including stomach upset and dizziness; DIM has no known side effects. Therefore, DIM-plus™ features active DIM. There is no I3C in the product.
