Body System/s & Therapeutic Support:  Stress/Blood sugar balance, Relaxation, Metabolism, Weight loss, Pain, Digestion, Immunity, Kidney support. 

 

Health Tip: Use organic Buckwheat Flakes for best nutrition.  Oats have gluten in them (yes even the ‘gluten-free’ kind!) And products such as Oats So Simple are refined and do not keep your blood sugar stable.

Here are some ideas to enhance your therapy value of this recipe:

  • For anxiety, stress relief, relaxation, constipation or cardio support - add ground pumpkin seeds.

  • For cortisol (stress or blood sugar imbalance), brain function, nerve signalling e.g. epilepsy), add sunflower seeds

  • For sleep and quality calcium, add ground almonds

  • For liver and immune support, add ground Brazil nuts

 

Helpful Tip:  Like oats, buckwheat flakes do not really need to cook…they simply need to rest in hot water to ‘thicken’.  You could take them to work, pop them in a mug, pour over the hot water and leave them to stand.  

 

Can be served with: (stand-alone meal as breakfast)
