Nourishment Notes


Quinoa is a gluten free grain with a high amount of protein and fiber. It’s rich in quercetin and flavonoids, antioxidants that work to protect healthy cells from damage.


Pears are an excellent source of fiber to help lower cholesterol levels and promote heart health. Pears also contain high amounts of vitamin C, an important nutrient for those with multiple sclerosis.


Cinnamon is a powerhouse antioxidant and spice. It contains high amounts of polyphenols, a type of nutrient that helps protect body cells from becoming damaged.
