Pumpkin Loaf with Pecans & Chai Soaked Prunes

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.

FAT Muesli with Vanilla Brazil Nut Milk

FAT Muesli with Vanilla Brazil Nut Milk

This breakfast is full of so many good fats it will have you feeling full and satisfied all morning. I think Omega-3 fats are on of the most important nutrients people should be trying to get more of in their diets. They are needed for brain development, transport of fat soluble vitamins, to help retain water, maintain cell resilience and reduce inflammation (the later two are particularly helpful at reducing skin ageing!). 

Spinach and Zucchini Loaf

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.
