I love that the base grain for this granola is buckwheat because we all need more food diversity in our diet to improve our microbiomes
Winter is a struggle for me and I'm sure I'm not the only one. The miserable weather, the dark mornings and nights, the lack of sunshine - and the list goes on. Eating nutritious food becomes a struggle too because no longer do I feel like smoothies and salads even though I know my body thrives of fresh and light food.
This is my idea of heaven. Especially seeing Melbourne has decided to turn up the winter dial all of a sudden! Salmon is a fantastic source of omega-3 fatty acids and if you find little bones in yours, don't stress, they provide you with calcium so I suggest you gobble them up. Sea weed is so underrated in my eyes and gives you plenty of Vitamin A, C, calcium and antioxidants as well as providing a great source of iodine. Edamame beans are high in protein and fibre and we have bok choy, mushrooms and soba noodles to boost the fibre content even further. Warming, nourishing and super delicious!
This loaf is so versatile I have been known to consume it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and as a snack (not all in the one day of course!). It freezes perfectly and can go straight into the toaster for a quick go to nutrient hit. The almonds are full of healthy fat and vitamin E, the oats help to stabilise blood sugar and calm the nervous system and the psyllium husk although mainly used as a binding agent here, can help to regulate the bowels.
