Lemon Turmeric Energy Balls

Before your afternoon or evening workout, top up your tank with one of these energizing balls.

Why It's Good For You:

During the day you run your tank dry. Most of us often feel sluggish in the afternoon and look for a pick-me-up to give us the boost before our training session. It is important to feed your body carbohydrates before your afternoon workout for a consistent energy release during training. This recipe contains medjool dates and oats for a hit of carbohydrates, fats from almonds and chia seeds to slow down the energy release, and lemon and turmeric as preventative measure against post-workout inflammation.
