30 Bananas a Day!

I see many eating dates, dateorade, etc. Do you all get your dates fresh? In my country it is impossible to find fresh dates, only dried ones.

I know that drying fruits means loosing a lot of its nutrition but how much do you loose from drying dates?

Would you incorporate dry dates in your diet?

Just curious, how is the taste of the fresh ones, is it very different?

I'm not sure if the dates I eat are raw or not. It says on the package that they can be stored for a year but they aren't as dry as some really dried pitted dates that I've tried. 

I can't get any 100% fresh dates here in Russia either so I've decided to eat the best dates I can buy but they are probably not raw. Would it make sense to order them online and get them shipped by mail or something? It kinda looks like an overkill to me...


 I think in nature dates can get dried by the sun pretty much in the same way as store bought dates and it doesn't really matter much. I don't consider them as cooked food. It's not like eating steamed vegetables or grains, I think it digest hell of a lot better and doesnt have toxins as in cooked food but its just my theory based on the way I feel and look after eating them. 

The problem is that my diet is very limited as is and its hard to get good fruit here anyway so if I remove dates then it's even more restrictive. Dates are the only not 100% raw food I allow. I don't even really know if the are raw or not.
