This is such a simple and purely delicious dish that I just had to share it. My superfood muesli with lush summer berries is my favourite breakfast of the moment. It takes just one minute to prepare and what I love about it is that it makes the perfect portable food so you can easily prepare it into a glass jar and take it to work to enjoy at your leisure. I love to vary my base recipe and use a good organic natural yoghurt, coconut kefir or even a silky cashew cream. To this base I add a spoonful of my antioxidant rich Organic Superfood which is packed with 10 organic veggies and lush berry fruits that helps to nourish my body before I start my busy day. I top it simply with fresh berries and a scattering of walnut for added omega 3 before it’s devoured. Feel free to top with other fresh fruits in season – some great combinations are fresh figs, pear and hazelnut – pineapple, papaya and passionfruit – peach and raspberry.
What’s good about it:
Berries are loaded with antioxidants + polyphenols to protect agains disease and inflammation and promote optimum health and vitality. Yoghurt and kefir is packed with good bacteria that can help protect your immune system as well as support digestion. They are also rich in quality protein to support repair and recovery. Healthy Chef Superfood adds a boost of fruit and vegetables that is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds to support optimum health. It also works as a prebiotic in the gut for healthy digestion and nutrient absorption. Walnuts are a delicious source of omega 3 EFA’s (essential fatty acids) which are essential for good health. Health benefits of omega 3 are helping to lower cholesterol levels, reduce high blood pressure, improves symptoms of arthritis, improves mental health as the brain is 60% fat and needs omega 3 to function properly. They are also high in the amino acid tryptophan which helps to make serotonin – the FEEL GOOD hormone responsible for feelings of wellbeing and feeling great !
