My Chef Friend Tagan said to me one day – “Oats, Molasses and Smashed Avocados”
She replied “Just taste it”.
I did then I said “Ohhh”
This combination is a traditional Brazilian countryside breakfast.
MOLASSES: It has the lowest sugar content of any sugar cane product. The wonderment of blackstrap molasses is that it’s unlike refined sugar, which has zero nutritional value. Blackstrap molasses contains vital vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6, and selenium.
AVACADOS: Avocados offer nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving, including potassium (which helps control blood pressure), lutein (which is good for your eyes), and folate (which is crucial for cell repair and during pregnancy).
Avocados are a good source of B vitamins, which help you fight off disease and infection. They also give you vitamins C and E, plus natural plant chemicals that may help prevent cancer.
Avocados are low in sugar. And they contain fiber, which helps you feel full longer. In one study, people who added a fresh avocado half to their lunch were less interested in eating during the next three hours.
RAW OATS: Oats (avena sativa) have been linked with reducing cholesterol levels, balancing blood sugar, helping to lower blood pressure, encouraging regular bowel movements, providing a valuable source of carbohydrates for athletic performance, promoting nerve health, assisting with weight management, and even as an important food for longevity.
Oats have a higher concentration of well-balanced protein than other commonly used cereals due to having such an impressive amino acid profile, plus they contain essential fatty acids and phytonutrients which help to protect the body against chronic disease and maintain general health and wellbeing.
Oats are a good source of most vitamins and minerals, and beta glucan — crucial in infection management and faster wound healing.
