Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!  Ahoy, date-y!

Yo ho ho! Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day, lassies and lads! While the majority of Talk Like a Pirate Day festivities are fun, the day is also a somber reminder of a serious pirate issue: the scurvy.

To avoid the scurvy, take me advice today and eat yer dates! Here are 3 ways to up yer date intake:
  1. Score some chickpea, carrot and date tajine—the ultimate pirate's booty,
  2. While a scallywag walks the plank, take a moment to snack on some coconut-pistachio stuffed dates, and
  3. Mix date syrup into yer grog. It helps the rum go down easier.
Always remember, lassies and lads,"Touch me loot, feel me boot!"


  1. Thanks for the somber yet adorable reminder! How could I have forgotten it was Talk Like a Pirate Day?
