Hemp seeds are super nutritious. They are rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals. Hemp Seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease, help with various skin conditions, and aid digestion. On top of it all, they are a great source of plant based protein.
Flax and chia seeds are nutrition powerhouses as well. They are both a good plant-based source of protein. These nutritious foods are rich in fiber, healthy fatty acids and a variety of minerals. They contain Omega-3 fatty acids called alpha linolenic acid, which helps improve brain function and boosts the immune system.
Berries not only color your breakfast beautiful, they also make it healthier due to their antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Strawberries are high in phenols, another important phytonutrient. Phenols are responsible for protecting you from disease and promoting good health. Strawberries may reduce macular degeneration of the eyes, and are an excellent source of potassium, fiber, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, iodine, folate, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium and copper. What else? They are delicious and low in calories.
And then of course there is the cacao? Raw, organic cacao is rich in antioxidants (much higher than e.g. blueberries) and flavanols (they keep you young and healthy!). Cacao is the hightest source of plant-based iron (7.3mg per 100g!), has got more calcium than milk (160mg per 100g vs 125mg per 100ml of milk), and is full of magnesium. Magnesium is important for a healthy heart, and helps turn glucose into energy making sure that your brain is able to work with laser-sharp clarity and focus.
And yes, Cacao makes you and me happy, doesn’t it! That’s because it is a source of bliss chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine. They are associated with feelings of wellbeing, happiness, and can even alleviate depression. We all need a dose of happiness, right?
