WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT IT

 

Oats are full of fibre to help regulate your appetite and support healthy digestion. Eggs and flaxseeds are high in protein to keep you satiated, while cinnamon improves insulin’s efficiency and helps regulate blood sugar levels. The addition of vanilla helps relax the nervous system and reduce inflammation.
