FOOD FACTS

+Dates are high in chloride which aids digestion.
+Bananas contain potassium which helps our muscles to work properly. This is especially important after exercise so that our muscles can repair and grow.
+Drinking a smoothie like this is better than your average energy drink because it provides just as much energy and sugar but it also provides your body with other nutrients like fibre and vitamins & minerals which are needed when you work hard at the gym.

The % breakdown of bananas Tim talks about is the approximate contribution of the energy from different macronutritents.
