Nourish 101:

  • These healthy muffins are a well balanced snack with the combination of protein (from egg and almond meal), healthy carbohydrates (from banana) and healthy fats (from egg and almond meal).
  • Almonds are rich in healthy fats and vitamin E and are known to help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. Lowering your LDL cholesterol lowers your risk of heart disease.
  • Bananas are a great energy source and are rich in fibre to promote a healthy digestion and improve elimination.
  • Bananas are also rich in vitamins C, B6, folate and minerals magnesium, potassium and copper providing nutrition for optimum health and vitality. They can also help to boost mood.
  • Eggs are a great source of complete protein and contain many different vitamins and minerals increasing your overall nutrient intake.
  • By adding a source of healthy fat and protein from using almond meal and eggs the effects of the fruit sugar on your blood sugar levels is greatly reduced.
