LSA Super Grains

LSA Super Grains blends ground Linseed (also known as Flaxseed), Sunflower Seeds and Almonds, then adds chia seeds, buckwheat and quinoa.

  • Linseeds are the richest source of the Omega-3 fatty acid Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), which we need for a healthy heart and brain. ALA is an essential fatty acid, which means our bodies can’t make it, so we must get it from the foods we eat.
  • Almonds are a good source of monounsaturated fat, which is important for keeping cholesterol levels down and supporting heart health. They also supply Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect your blood vessels and heart.
  • Chia seeds are a great source of fibre, which help to keep you regular.

With such fabulous ingredients, Healtheries LSA Super Grains really is a super food to add to your daily diet. Try sprinkling it on your cereal or porridge in the morning, or adding it to smoothies, baking and cooking. Try our moist Gluten-free Super Grain Banana Bread to get you started with LSA Super Grains!

Bircher Muesli

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and what better way to start your day than with a delicious bowl of Bircher Muesli? Packed with nutrient-dense ingredients like oats, grains, seeds and dried fruit, Bircher provides an array of health benefits. Oats in particular are super-good for us - they help to lower cholesterol levels and supply long-lasting energy for hours after we eat them. That makes them perfect if you tend to get peckish mid-morning! Try the energising recipe below....

Bircher Muesli - Stir ½ cup of Healtheries Apple & Raisin Bircher Muesli with ⅓ cup of cold water, milk or juice. Cover and refrigerate overnight to soak. When it’s ready to eat, top with thick natural yoghurt, grated apple, or berries and crunchy almonds. Enjoy!

Stoneground Wholemeal flour

This wholesome flour is made from 100% wholemeal wheat, meaning it contains all of the grain, including the bran and germ, where all of the goodness is found. 

Healtheries Stoneground Wholemeal flour is a great source of fibre and other important nutrients such as Vitamin B1 (Thiamin). Fibre helps to move waste through your body and supports a healthy bowel. It also helps to stabilise blood sugar and insulin levels. Another super benefit of high-fibre foods is that they fill you up and can help to support weight control. Now who doesn’t want that?

Vitamin B1 helps your body to release the energy found in carbohydrates. This ensures you have plenty of ‘go’ to get you through your day! Wholemeal flour adds a delicious flavour and texture to baking...the options are endless. Try adding it to breads, muffins, slices and cakes for that little bit of extra nutrition.

Green Tea

Green tea is a lively drink, and is the perfect replacement for coffee or tea, especially if you normally add extra sugar to your drinks. Green tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are unfermented and lightly steamed so they keep their green colour.

Green tea contains potent antioxidants called catechins. These antioxidants have been shown to have a range of health benefits including supporting weight management, improving bone density, and helping to prevent certain cancers and cardiovascular disease.

Green tea naturally contains caffeine for mental alertness; however it contains less than your regular cup of tea or coffee. This makes it a great alternative if you want reduce your daily caffeine intake without cutting it out completely.

Healtheries has a range of green teas, including our Pure Green tea, as well as green teas with added fruit flavours. These are perfect if you want a naturally sweeter, fruity-tasting green tea. Why not try Green tea with Zesty Lemon, Green Tea with Orchard Peach, or the Kiwi-inspired Green Tea with Braeburn Apple. Pick your favourite super tea, and then remember to brew it for at least 3-5 minutes to extract all health benefits!
