Whether you are recovering from chemotherapy or trying to fend off the occasional cold, it is always worthwhile to keep your immune system working in tip top condition. Starting the day with a nutritious breakfast is a great way to support your body in fighting off infections, and keeping you feeling well. Here are my ‘top 5 breakfasts’ which are all absolutely delicious and full of healthy nutrition!
Blend the following ingredients and cook on a medium heat in coconut oil. Makes 4 small pancakes.
· 1 egg
· 1 handful of raspberries
· 3 tbsp almond flour (100% ground almonds)
· 2 tbsp oats
Serve with stewed raspberries poured over the top, with almond flakes for a moist and crunchy healthy topping. Coconut oil is heat stable and also full of powerful immune-boosting fatty acids such as lauric acid, therefore is great to use when frying foods.
Spinach contains huge amounts of vitamin K and vitamin A amongst many other nutrients which are beneficial for immune health, so add some lightly sautéed spinach to your breakfast. Raw is also great if you prefer it this way.
