Chia & Linseed Breakfast


This Chia and Linseed breakfast is perfect for those who suffer from ‘iffy’ bowels, particularly if you are prone to constipation. Chia and Linseeds are known as ‘prebiotic’ foods. Prebiotics feed probiotics. Probiotics are the good or beneficial bacteria we like to cultivate in the bowel, creating a healthy microbiome.  A diverse and healthy microbiome, fed by prebiotics, is important for our immune and nervous systems and fosters good gut health. Prebiotics help the probiotics to flourish.
