Cottage cheese, Blueberries, Walnuts and Cinnamon
This delicious breakfast will give your taste buds and brain a boost. Starting with the star of the meal - CORN THINS slices are a great whole grain source. This means more fibre, vitamins, and minerals to your body like B vitamins which help to create energy from the food you eat. The walnuts provide a plant source of omega 3 fat called alpha linoleic acid. Omega 3 fat plays many important roles in your body from optimising your brain, heart, and artery health to making sure your vision stays sharp. The protein in the walnuts and cottage cheese will help build and repair all the cells in your body. Protein also helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer. Cottage cheese provides calcium to your body, needs for strong bones and teeth as well as normal muscle contractions.
Cinnamon adds a great alternative to sugar but also has antifungal and viral properties. It is also full of antioxidants to fight off free radicals which damage and cause disease to the cells of your body. Adding to the antioxidants is the delicious blueberries. An antioxidant to mention here is the anthocyanidins which help reduce your risk of heart disease. These berries are a great source of vitamin C to keep your immune system working normally as well as fibre to keep the munchies at bay. This recipe of the month is a must try for your next breakfast.
