Sarah Vickers – one of our BePure Holistic Health Consultants, shares with us her morning ritual – avocado on toast.

One of the first changes we encourage our BePure Clinic clients to make, is to cut out highly inflammatory gluten from their diets. However that's easier said than done –  many clients don't like the idea of giving up bread. But, you can still enjoy the ritual of avocado on toast for breakfast without feeling bloated and tired by mid-morning with this nutrient-dense seed loaf – a delicious, gluten-free alternative, inspired by Sarah from My New Roots.

Firstly the nuts and seeds are full of healthy fats which is the precursor for your whole hormonal cascade – both stress and sex hormones are dependant on good fats. Tick!
Secondly, the psyllium seed husk is an incredible source of fibre which beneficial for our gut health. When we have good gut health, we can clear toxic waste out of our systems which allows us to feel happy and healthy.

 

The mix of nutty, seedy ingredients allows for a decent range of fats, proteins, and carbs which is essential for supporting blood sugar regulation. To have happy health and stable sex hormones we need to be able to support our blood sugar levels on a daily basis.
