Ramadan is a favorable month and cacao, nut, date energy balls offer a great treat for the fasting person. The approach of this auspicious month brings great anticipation, a reaffirmation with God to be a better Muslim, friend, spouse, colleague, or neighbor. Conversely, its departure signals joy and relief juxtaposed with sadness and a renewed aim to sustain the serene fortitude we gain from the experience. Although fasting may appear onerous to the uninitiated, abstaining from food and drink as brings a tranquility which transcends hunger or thirst.
