“I love making my WelleCo Chai Carrot Loaf because it is full of my favourite foods. Almonds because they are a source of protein and make a great gluten free alternative for white flour. Carrots get their colour from beta carotene, an antioxidant that your body converts into vitamin A. This nutrient promotes good vision and is important for growth, development, and immune function. Eating good fat (chai seeds, olive oil, almonds) helps to absorb more of the beta carotene. The soluble fibres can lower blood sugar levels by slowing down your digestion of sugar and starch while also feeding the friendly bacteria in your gut. Cinnamon is included because it is well known for its blood sugar lowering properties. The antioxidants in cinnamon can have anti-inflammatory effects. Cinnamon can reduce insulin resistance, helping the hormone to do its job. Enjoy!”
