Here are my first words of caution about these Fig and Nut Energy Bites:
They are delicious.
And my second words of caution
Many people hear “energy bites” and think that by eating these you’ll get a boost of energy.  This, while some-what accurate is a little stretch from the truth.  Let me break this down for you…
Calories are the body’s source of energy, they are what fuels our body.  Just like gasoline fuels our car.  Eating an energy bite won’t give you the same result as drinking a Red Bull (which by the way, I’d advise against energy drinks).  Energy bites are simply just a high calorie bite of food, but the calories in these Fig and Nut Energy Bites come from healthy sources!  They are a source of fiber, healthy unsaturated fats (i.e. heart healthy fats), and nutrients like Vitamin E and magnesium.
These energy bites remind me of a particular brand of fruit and nut chocolate bars, but these are a healthy treat to keep you going when you are on the run, and these don’t have the added fat and sugar of chocolate bars…. enjoy!
