Raisins. I know — not particularly sexy or exciting, but honestly raisins could be your new best friend. Here’s why:

  1. High in natural sugar (fructose) but won’t wreak havoc with your blood sugar levels
  2. Chock full of nutrients including Vitamin C
  3. A natural source of iron — important for the production of haemoglobin (which helps to oxygenate your blood)
  4. High in fibre
  5. Eat a handful of raisins covered in dark chocolate as an evening snack — not only delicious but will help you have a deep and solid night’s sleep. True story.
