Minimal to no gluten, digestion friendly cheese, superfood enriched, no meat (this time) and a great source of protein and fats – you can’t ask for more. The perfect post-workout meal.

Not to mention the yummy Avocado spread on a buttery piece of fermented Sourdough Bread.

Eggs are great source of protein and should be a staple for most active people, with egg yolk providing a nice hit of good cholesterol that helps with hormone production and cell energy. Beetroot is a good source of iron, nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants, in addition to helping lower blood pressure and boost exercise performance. Turmeric is all the rage this year, due it’s ability to fight inflammation, containing antioxidants, protecting your heart, having brain boosting properties and linked to helping ward off diabetes and cancer. Sourdough, as it is fermented, gives you the enjoyment of bread with a significantly reduced hit of gluten, that is usually inflammatory to your gut. Goats do not contain a certain mutation in the milk that most cows do, making their milk and cheese much more digestion friendly.
