The Hemp seed is packed full of Magnesium and is a good source of iron. It also has dietary fibre and amino acids to help strength and repair of muscles, skin and bones.

Chia is a wonder food and will swell slightly when water or milk is added, so you may need to add more. It will aid transit and help with constipation.

Flaxseed is one of the richest sources of Omega 3 in the plant world and is very good to help with cholesterol levels. It also has zinc, a mineral which is difficult to find in vegetables and grains.

All of these can be eaten at any time of the day.

If you are used to eating dairy products like cow’s milk, start and think about alternatives. Dairy has side effects, like a build up of mucous in the bowels. Many people are dairy intolerant and would benefit from cutting back their consumption.
