During colder seasons, we crave denser, more comforting, warming foods. That’s why we have chosen to share this recipe with you! This breakfast has an abundance of nutrients. The nuts and seeds are soaked overnight in order to activate the properties of these ingredients and create live enzymes which aid in digestion, and offer an increased level of antioxidants and more bioavailable micro nutrients.
