Raw honey has SO many incredible health benefits. One of my favourites is that it contains probiotics, which are basically the “good” type of bacteria. Probiotics promote a healthy gut microbiome, and are important not only to our digestive system health but also the health of our BRAIN! That’s right, I’m talking about the gut-brain connection here. The gut and brain are directly connected via the vagus nerve, which runs from our brain all the way to our large intestine. When our gut is healthy, it communicates through the vagus nerve with our brain and we can expect to have elevated brain health (think memory, mood and mental clarity!).
This bowl is deliciously comforting and warming, not to mention packed with nutritious goodies that will keep you satiated and satisfied. The chia seeds, hemp seeds and oatmeal are all great sources of fibre, which is helpful in keeping our blood sugar balanced and is supportive to our digestion.
