Kernels and seeds - superfoods for your porridge

Kerne und Samen - Superfoods für dein Porridge

You can perfectly complement your breakfast and a balanced diet with seeds and kernels. What makes these little things so powerful? They contain healthy fats, fiber, phytochemicals and are a good source of plant-based protein. Real all-rounders who only want good things for our bodies.

For the full blast of superfood, we combine our creamy porridge with seeds and kernels. For extra crunch, for a nutty note and for an extra portion of nutrients.

Which seeds would you like? We have taken a closer look at the most popular seeds and kernels.

Filler - psyllium husks

When combined with liquid, for example in a creamy porridge, the seeds swell and form a gel-like coating. Our intestinal flora and our digestion are particularly happy about this. Similar to oatmeal, they keep you full for a long time due to their high fiber content. Since the fiber is mainly found in the husk of psyllium seeds, only the psyllium husks are usually used. The seed shells also have a detox effect: they cleanse our intestines and free our body of existing toxins.

Fiber bomb - flaxseed

Flaxseeds are real fiber bombs. The high proportion of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids makes them particularly attractive. The nutty taste of flaxseed goes perfectly with porridge and at the same time you can supply your body with valuable nutrients.

Low carb friendly - sunflower seeds

Sunflower seeds have a fairly high fat content of almost 50%. Good news – these are very healthy fats, because we are talking about unsaturated fatty acids. The small seeds have few carbohydrates. Your body gets most of its energy from proteins and fats.

The exotic - chia seeds

Chia seeds are the exotic among seeds and superfoods. In terms of their effect on our well-being, they are very similar to flaxseeds. They also contain plenty of fiber, polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids and phytochemicals.

Protein Buddy - Hemp seeds

With hemp seeds you can add an extra portion of protein to your breakfast. The small seeds contain essential amino acids. This makes them an attractive source of protein, especially for vegetarians and vegans. Hemp seeds also contain valuable omega fatty acids and vitamin E.
