Up your fibre with ease…. so you can have ease on the loo too….
Happily eating this brekky every day at the moment… super satisfying, wholesome, flavoursome and a great start in high quality nutrition to kick off the day.
🍓 Here’s what I do… soak quinoa flakes with coconut, prunes, sunflower seeds, macadamias, almonds, cinnamon overnight just with boiling water, then pop it together with whatever seasonal fruits are around but this week we had amazeballs strawberries and I used up the rest of the frozen organic raspberries in the freezer. Served up either with coconut or greek yoghurt, take your pick, obviously the coconut is a bit richer so I don’t find I need too much, fab way to keep brekky plant based too if you’re aiming for more of that. 🌱
Aaaaand depending on the day (if I’ve trained in the morning, have a big day ahead or just actually a bit hungrier than normal) I pop some cashew butter on the side. Probs my fave nut butter of all time – BIG CALL.
🍈 On the PRUNES factor in the soaked muesli – firstly, HELLO YUM.
Secondly, no, I’m not constipated but thanks for your concern.
I love them yes for fibre but also just so delicious and add sweet without having to add honey or maple to the blend.
They are suuuuuuuper rich in fibre though, SO if you are feeling like you’re shooting hard kangaroo pellets and straining as you pass, consider how much FIBRE is in your meals and start to add in small extra portions where you can.
Also top up your water and herbal tea intake which can help soften things a little and let the ole bowels do their thang without it being a strained/uncomfortable experience for you. Passing should be a relaxed time and actually TBH really satisfying. 😁
