Did you know?

Stress-free Breakfast: Start your day with a breakfast which is low in fat (saturated fat may aggravate your digestive system), rich in complex carbs (which raise serotonin levels for a relaxed calming effect) and high in protein (which boosts brain chemicals that help you focus).  For example: plain oatmeal with low-fat milk and strawberries will help you off to a great start.

Or why not try combining the following ingredients for a delicious and nutritionally filling breakfast:
1 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp ground flaxseed (which I grind up and keep in the freezer)
1.5 cups water
1/2 grated apple
nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla essence
handful of raisins and chopped dates.

Bring to boil, then reduce heat low, cooking for about 20-30 mins.  I love to serve this with honey and toasted almond slivers.
