Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please! Traditional cookies will give you the boost of energy you need to start the day, along with a sugar crash even before your lunchtime. That’s why we’ve made one loaded with fibre and healthy sugars to give you a sustained boost of energy to get you through your morning.
What’s in it?
- The superstar ingredient is pumpkin! Pumpkin houses many nutrients, especially beta-carotene. It’s packed with antioxidants, which help keep oxidative stress at bay and prevent cellular damage. Pumpkin is also a source of vitamin C, which helps support the immune system.
- Oats are a great source of fibre, zinc, magnesium, and thiamine (B1). Fibre is important because it helps slow down the release of sugar, preventing the dreaded sugar crash. Fibreshould also be incorporated into your breakfast because it helps increase feelings of satiety, keeping you fuller longer.
- Honey and maple syrup are healthy sugar sources that don’t skimp on sweetness. We love these sugar alternatives because they have a lower glycemic index than traditional white or brown sugar. This means that they don’t spike blood sugar as fast, again, preventing that dreaded sugar crash.
- Adding Iron Vegan’s Superfood and Greens not only adds real fruits, vegetables, and organic mushrooms to your morning but it also adds a boost of energy, which is always a good thing in the AM.
