Not All Calories are created equal…


Some snacks enhance energy levels, while others leave us feeling depleted. The key to choosing a satisfying snack that will give you
energy to burn is understanding how certain foods fuel energy.

 

 

The primary ingredient in SimpleSense Energy Blocks is almonds. 

 

Almonds are packed with a potent combination of energy-enriching nutrients, including manganese, vitamin E, magnesium, tryptophan, copper, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.

 

 

·      The protein and fiber in almonds stabilizes blood sugar and slows digestion, which helps regulate energy. They won’t leave you with a sugar crash like most energy snacks/ drinks will. 

·      Almonds are a good source of magnesium, involved in at least 300 biochemical reactions in the body.  Magnesium is an essential mineral for maintaining normal muscle and nerve function, keeping a healthy immune system, maintaining heart rhythm, energy levels and building strong bones.

·      Just 1 oz.of almonds (roughly 20) contains more than 40 percent of your Daily Value of vitamin E, an antioxidant that supports the immune system by neutralizing free radicals.


It's really important to check out the ingredient label on products, just as much (if not more) than the actual nutrient information.  You want to see WHAT your eating, not just the calories, fat and sugar it contains.  Sure calories, fat, sugar, and sodium all are important, but it's even more imperative you know WHERE these are actually coming from.  You may find a low calorie, low fat snack, but eating chemicals is not what I would call a good trade off. Be smart, be healthy :)

In good health,
