With fresh produce in season, it’s hard not to find ways to mix fresh fruit into meals. Simple breakfast bowls like this work great as a breakfast meal, or fist snack. Combining protein, fats and soluble fibre help keep the body satisfied for longer.
Fibre: we all know of fibre as being a great ‘regulator,’ it also slows the absorption of sugar, but improves movement through the intestines making you feel fuller faster.
Protein is essential for developing and maintaining lean muscle. It is also effective at making us feel fuller for longer preventing overeating. By assisting in glycemic control, a high protein breakfast can help stabilize blood sugar, reducing the desire to eat.
Fats: according to some researchers, the brain is comprised of up to 60% fat, crazy right? Knowing your good fats and bad fats is crucial (we’ll talk about that another day), but as a basic rule, keeping to fats from fish, nuts, avacados and some natural animal fats is great. Healthy fats are also great for your skin cells, heart and lungs 🙂
DIY SuperSeed Blend
I managed to find all of these ingredients in the organic bulk section of my local grocer. I went a little heavier on the hemp hearts and used equal parts of everything else. You can definitely blend it based on what you like best 🙂
