Old Fashioned Oats

Oats provide a gluten-free source of soluble fiber, an important nutrient for gut health. Oats are also a complex carbohydrate that provide your body with the energy it needs to function its best.

Flax Seed

Flax seed is high in omega-3 fatty acids. These types of fats are helpful for reducing inflammation in the body and lowering the risk of heart disease. Flax seed is also rich in dietary fiber.

Fatigue Buster

  • Lemon Zest

    Purchase pre-squeezed lemon juice in place of lemon zest.
