Health Benefits of this Recipe:

This meal is a good choice as it not only has the health benefits of the whole grains that are used to make Corn Thins™ slices, but the healthy fats found other ingredients (hazelnuts, extra virgin olive oil and sunflower seeds). The hazelnuts and sunflower also add additional fibre and protein. This will help to keep you feeling fuller for longer by lowering the GI or glycaemic index of the meal. If you add milk this will add even more protein to increase the satiety of the meal.

The non-haem iron found in whole grains are better absorbed with vitamin C. This is found in the dried raisins. Cinnamon and ginger add antioxidants to help fight off free radicals which can cause damage and disease to the cells of your body. The ginger will also help to sooth the gut. It is important to know how the meal affects your body. As we tend to eat not just single foods but a combination together. This combination can enhance the health benefits that your body will receive.
