When we feel fully satiated in the morning These concepts are important in understanding how different foods and eating patterns can affect hunger and fullness, and ultimately impact weight management and overall health.
You will notice this recipe has slightly less nuts than average but more seeds. Also did you know avocado oil is a huge trend for 2023 and has lots of health benefits.

The addition of more seeds than nuts is again to boost our nutrition. I also love to use the milled seeds as a boost in all of my granolas and on top of my porridge. I also love the sesame seeds. They are one of those plant based foods that are loaded with umami. That’s my secret little flavour boost for you today. Keep an eye out for the black and white sesame seeds. Plus, the recipe is customisable so feel free to add or subtract any ingredients to fit your personal preferences!
