Nutritional information

By Jean Hailes naturopath and herbalist Sandra Villella

The antioxidant-rich raspberries and strawberries give the colour to this smoothie, which you can enjoy as a healthy breakfast, or as a protein-rich afternoon pick-me-up.

Unhulled sesame seeds are about 10 times higher in calcium than regular sesame seeds, while the linseeds are rich in soluble fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and the phytoestrogens called lignans.

Almonds are the best all-rounder nut for nutrients. Use probiotic-rich yoghurt for gut health, and your favourite milk of choice to top up the protein.
