Ingredients and their health benefits
All nutritional facts are based on my knowledge as a nutritionist and are derived from the nutritional content of each food. The information below is to give you an insight on some of the health benefits certain foods may have but I do not guarantee that my products enhance those benefits.
Oats are one of the most popular food for breakfast as they provide a lot of fiber to keep you going until lunch. Even though they get hulled during the process, most of its nutrients stay in place, making oats a nutritious food. They are high in protein and beta-glucan which is linked lower cholesterol levels and better heart health. Oats are naturally gluten free but can be cross-contaminated by one of the gluten containing grains. I’m not using certified gluten-free oats, so the above granola is not suitable for anyone allergic or intolerant to gluten.
These small little seeds are a real powerhouse. They are high in magnesium as well as zinc and contain Vitamin E. Vitamin E can only be absorbed if eaten with fat so we are lucky that pumpkin seeds are loaded with the essential Omega 3 fatty acids. This fatty acid is anti-inflammatory and helps to protect our brain functions.
Sunflower seeds provide your body with a wide spectrum of minerals and vitamins. Vitamin E, copper, B vitamins and even selenium are just a few. Selenium is an important nutrient for the proper function of the thyroid and a deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism.
Oil might be quite controversial; however, I believe that virgin coconut oil brings a lot of health benefits. The structure of the fatty acids in coconut oil is quite unique. Even though it’s mostly saturated fat (the fat we want to avoid) the length of the acids is what separates coconut oil from other fats. MCFA or medium chain fatty acids are metabolized differently meaning that our body is able to use those fats as energy. For more information click here.
Cinnamon is a spice we usually connect with Christmas cookies or teas. But Ceylon cinnamon has so much more power than just adding some flavor to your sweets. Cinnamon is high in anti-oxidants and can help lower your blood sugar levels.
The granola comes in a sealable paper bag. Please store in an air tight container and keep in a cool, dry place up to 3 months.
The food is made in a kitchen where also eggs, dairy and gluten are handled.
