Don’t make your food choices mindless. Eat with intention and attention. Food has a large affect on your mood and the way you feel. There is no doubt that when you eat well, you feel well. Take time to recognize how your body functions and reacts from the consumption of food, listen to it closely and make the choices that will benefit you.


Gluten Free Granola is definitely a feel good food. It will get those endorphins running through your body from the first crunch. A nutritional powerhouse of ingredients, loaded with protein, magnesium, fiber and omega 3 just to name a few. With coconut oil giving it a light flavor, and coconut sugar for a gentle sweetness.


It is not only gluten free, but nut free too, so a safe snack for nut free zones! Add it onto yoghurt, mix through morning oats, or just eat straight off the spoon. Consume with intention and attention, it will make you feel great!


Enjoy! X
