If you follow me on instagram or snap chat you will see a regularity with certain foods - some may call it obsession, maybe addiction…but what I do know is that as well as making my soul happy they are also packed with nutritional goodness. Boom!!
Number 1 on the list is a staple ingredient for brunch goers:
Full of nutrients, healthy fats and contain more potassium than a banana. They also help to absorb nutrients from plant foods.
They are also delicious.
Any nut I don't care. Whizzed up into a creamy texture I add it to porridge, spread it on toast, dollop it into smoothies and occasionally (frequently) eat it straight out the jar.
High in protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Hand me the spoon.
2 minutes to prepare so there's no excuse to skip breakie. I wake up extra early because for me starting the day with a good breakfast is more beneficial than a few extra minutes in bed.
Sweet or savoury - add a handful of oats to stir fries or minced meat to thicken up dishes and get your carbs in.
Stay fuller for longer, regulate blood sugar levels and bowel movements :0
I don't have a lot of will power. If you put it in front of me, I will eat it. Without hesitation, without guilt (till later). Discovering this 'superfood' has meant I can snack and satisfy my sweet-tooth without feeling guilty.
Mood booster, high in magnesium, an aphrodisiac… Nuff said :p
As wedges, in brownies, mashed or baked - I do not care.
They can aid inflammation, digestion and are a great source of beta-carotene.
I've only listed 5 however trust me when I say the list goes on…!!
