Why is the Jam Doughnut bowl the perfect meal alternative?
1. It contains pea protein! Protein is essential for keeping you full and preventing you from snacking across the day. A lot of women think that if they consume protein they will gain weight and become 'bulky' but it's actually the complete opposite. Protein is one of the hardest macro nutrients for your body to break down, increasing your metabolism in an effort to burn it. This also means it will also keep you fuller for longer as it digests.
2. It contains cinnamon! Cinnamon spice is a great inclusion in both smoothies and meals as it has a stabilizing effect on our blood sugar levels. Peaks and dips in blood sugar levels has been linked to sugar and carbohydrate cravings as well as low energy levels. Stabilizing these levels will help to prevent any unnecessary cravings and keep your energy nice and high all day long.
3. It's super high in antioxidants to boost your immune system and make your skin shine. The inclusion of acai, strawberry, almonds and stewed strawberry jam means this bowl is packed with your antioxidants for the day!
