What's nourishing about this recipe... The almonds not only provide protein, but also provide good anti-inflammatory fats, which help to promote health. They have been shown to lower LDL-cholesterol (the 'bad' cholesterol) and lower risk of heart disease, provide protection against diabetes and may also aid lose weight loss.

Flaxseeds and psyllium husk provide a good source of soluble fibre, which promotes elimination by sweeping waste out of the colon more efficiently. In addition, both are known to have positive effects on cardiovascular health.

Flaxseeds are also a good source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, the ‘good’ fats, which have been shown to benefit our cardiovascular system. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains approximately 1.6 grams of plant omega-3s.
