Indulgent breakfasts that will make your stomach flat. Fast.
Want to break-the-fast without the bloat? Stock up on these superfoods, then indulge for an energised, healthy and beautiful body.
Clean plant-based protein
Plant protein made with a combination of organic sprouted brown rice and pea protein, herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals, and pre and probiotics, is arguably the smartest way to start the day. The Nourishing Protein, a clean, natural and complete protein source, helps support superior utilisation and uptake into the cells, muscle recovery, energy levels, a lean body, and a super-flat stomach – yes!
The fat contained in avocado not only helps reduce inflammation in the body but increases the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients, like carotenoids, that contribute to its anti-inflammatory abilities. Avocados also contain 152 mg of potassium per serving that supports metabolic function and helps build lean muscle.
Not only sweetly delicious and brimming with beauty-inducing antioxidants, berries are super-high in fibre which takes longer to digest making you will feel fuller for longer.
Lean protein like free-range organic eggs not only stave off hunger pains, but support lean muscle, which in turn, helps burns fat. Studies have also indicated that eating a high-protein breakfast, like eggs, can help you lose more weight, lower body mass index, and whittle inches off your waist.
Quinoa is among the least allergenic of all the grains, making it a healthy and tasty wheat-free choice. Boasting an excellent amino acid profile, it contains all nine essential amino acids making it a complete-protein source. With twice the protein content of rice or barley, quinoa is also a fantastic source of calcium, magnesium and manganese and contains vitamins B, E and plenty of dietary fibre which is great for digestion and in turn, a lovely flat stomach.
