These little powerhouses are an excellent snack pre or post workout because they are loaded with dates. Dates are made up of glycogen, meaning they are a perfect source of energy for our muscles! When we work out or exert our self during exercise, we use glycogen from our muscles. When we finish a workout, our bodies are seeking sugar, ideally glycogen to fuel those muscles and lead our bodies straight into recovery mode. 

These also contain cinnamon, which is known for increasing our metabolism and pistachios, which are a fantastic superfood for our brains. Pistachio produce the highest gamma wave response of all the nuts tested, which is necessary for enhancing cognitive processing, information retention, learning, perception, and can help with immunity, natural healing and deep sleep.
