5 reasons to make this delicious nutritious packed bread this week
1.Oats & Energy
It is packed full of the healthy carbohydrate that are oats. A recent study published in the Journal of Nutrients found that beta-glucan, the fibre found in oats reduced the rise in blood glucose after eating a meal of white bread in obese, overweight and healthy people by a whooping 25%. This suggests that oats are a great way of stabilising blood sugar levels and ensuring they and energy levels remain constant throughout the day.
2. Chia seeds & Endurance Performance
A 2011 study found feeding 50% chia seed and 50% gatorade boosted performance similarly to feeding highly trained males 100% of a gatorade drink. However as chia seeds are packed full of omega 3, iron, calcium, potassium, zinc and protein, it provided the athletes with a tonne more nutrition along with 50% less sugar than the group that were only fed 100% gatorade.
3. Walnuts & Bone Health
Walnuts are high in polyphenols and anti-inflammatory nutrients which contribute to maintaining strong bones. Studies have found that feeding plant based foods high in the omega 3, ALA (α-Linolenic Acid) such as walnuts have a protective effect on bone metabolism, contributing to better bone stability and less mineral loss from the bone over time.
