Benefits of Almonds - They are rich in good fats, Vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron. Almonds can be beneficial for those suffering with anemia, constipation, high blood pressure or diabetes and can help benefit the skin and hair. I love my almonds!! Every morning whilst practicing intense practices during Sadhana Intensive, we drank almond milk every morning not only is it delicious and with many benefits it was so comforting too!
Oats are incredibly nutritious and rich in antioxidants and are said to be one of the healthiest grains on earth. They contain good sources of iron, magnesium, folates are rich in carbs and B1 and B5, although rich in carbs they are low in fat. Hmmmm yum, I’m off to make my overnight, carrot cake oats!! Although being mostly vegan I leave out the yoghurt and add more almond milk.
Enjoy yours and chant Hari Rama Hari Rama Rama Rama Hari Hari, whilst you are making it for even more auspiciousness and deliciousness to be added!
Have beautiful days
Om shanti Om
