Chia Seed and Mixed Nut Yoghurt
This delicious snack makes an ideal healthy breakfast. Just 3 Brazil nuts will give you your daily selenium requirement, which helps prevent cancer and is very important for thyroid health. Walnuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Use full-fat organic yoghurt with probiotics to really maximize this dish's nutritional benefits. If you are on a dairy-free regimen, or if you'd like it a little sweeter, substitute with coconut yoghurt.
Sprinkle the yoghurt liberally with activated Brazil nuts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and chia seeds that have been soaked overnight. 'In order to 'activate' nuts, soak for 12 hours in salted, room-temperature water, then rinse and bake at a low temperature until dry and nicely roasted. This process breaks down the phytic acid in nuts, which can block the absorption of minerals by binding to them. Soaking the nuts and seeds releases the anti-nutrients and enzyme inhibitors. Take a look at this article for more detailed information on activating nuts.
