Notes

These little energy bombs are again full of healthy nutrients:

DATES:

  • they are rich in vitamin B6, which can improve brain function
  • they are rich in potassium and magnesium, which can lower blood pressure.
  • they are rich in fiber. Fibers give you a feeling of fullness and provide better digestion and bowel function. In addition, fibers can also have a cholesterol-lowering effect.
  • They have an anti-inflammatory effect (reduced risk of eg arthritis)

Watch out! 100 g of dried dates can contain up to 60 g of sugars. These sugars are natural sugars (fructose) but can also cause fluctuations in blood sugar levels. So eat them in moderation!

RAISINS:

Raisins are dried grapes so you can keep them longer.

Raisins are sweeter than grapes because 90% moisture disappears. 100 gr raisins can contain 64 gr sugars.

  • They are rich in fiber, which gives you a feeling of fullness and promotes bowel function.
  • they are rich in polyphenols (= anti-oxidants), magnesium, potassium and vitamin B
