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.
