As we draw closer to the start of Ramadan, we thought it would be good to remind you that one portion of Kunafa contains around 600 calories and 26 grams of fat! It is also a good time to encourage you to try out a brand-new dessert that will save you calorie counting and guilt – BOOST bombs: a selection of nutritious treats that will do a good job of keeping you away (happily) from Kunafa while boosting your energy levels. Read further below to find out the 6 different flavors of BOOST bombs.
What makes BOOST bombs special?
Each one of the 6 flavors are different in taste, texture and nutritional benefit, but all are low on “glycemic index and glycemic load.” This means that they won’t spike your blood sugar levels, which helps to keep hunger pangs and extra weight at bay. BOOST bombs come in small serving bites to control portion size. They’re not just good during Ramadan, BOOST bombs serve as great pre-workout snacks, too!
What are the nutritional benefits of BOOST bombs?
In each BOOST bomb, we’ve mixed dates with different wholesome ingredients, such as:
Chia seeds, rich in protein, fiber and omega 3.
Raw nuts, such as hazelnuts and almonds, packed with good monounsaturated fats.
Gluten-free oats, high in fiber.
Coconut oil, which helps to regulate metabolism and instantly increase energy levels.
