Breakfast Bowl for gut health

I am delighted peach season is back with us… I LOVE peaches! And yes, I keep the skin on them for additional fibre benefits (washed of course!)

This breakfast bowl is not only delicious, but it’s great for the gut too! I have been including additional nuts, specifically brazil and flaxseed as they are highly beneficial for women’s health, particularly for those of us in the midlife years! 

Breakfast bowl fibre points 15+

1 cup of kefir – Note, if you are new to kefir, start with a tablespoon in some natural yogurt and gradually increase the kefir and decrease the yogurt. Too much too soon could give you the runs! 

3-5 brazil nuts – these are an excellent source of selenium which is essential for thyroid health, boosts your immune system, also good for brain and heart health

1 tbsp ground flaxseed – excellent source of omega 3’s and antioxidants to support the arteries, blood pressure, blood sugar, help reduce excess estrogen (great if you get tender breasts throughout the month)

Fruit – I stick with seasonal fruit as much as possible, in the warmer months peaches, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, in the cooler months apples and pears. Frozen fruit is great, but make sure it’s defrosted overnight.

1 tbsp chia seeds – an excellent source of fibre omega 3’s and antioxidants which also help with blood pressure, and supporting general health


In a bowl place your kefir (and natural yogurt if you are using it), add the chia seeds and stir through. Allow to sit for at least 10mins to allow the chia seeds to soak up some of the liquid, this creates a gel-like substance around the seeds which is great to help clear out your colon. If you are constipated it will help move things on and if you are loose, it will help bulk things up. 

Add your fruit, nuts, seeds and granola, serve and enjoy. 

It’s that simple.
