Not Only Delicious, But Also Nutritious Because:

• The mixture of grains, seeds and nuts, as well as the use of shredded coconut create a high fibre breakfast.

• A high fibre diet (25g/day women, 30g/day men) is crucial to maintaining optimal digestive function and a healthy, diverse microbiome.

• By weight chia seeds are 14% protein. Chia seeds along with the sunflower, pepita and almond seeds create a high protein breakfast which has been shown to reduce appetite and obsessive thoughts about food.
