I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian and Nutritionist with more than 20 years of health care experience. I am constantly looking for foods which taste good, but enable my clients to become healthier when they eat them. I am particularly pleased to recommend the Goodness Superfoods range of cereals. Having breakfast every day is a crucial aspect for a balanced diet. Cereals are a staple for Australians in the morning. A good cereal has an adequate amount of energy but is high in fibre and protein. Such cereals sustain people through the day and can also help in controlling blood sugar and cholesterol levels. I routinely recommend Digestive 1st, Protein 1st and Heart 1st breakfast cereals from Goodness Superfoods. They are very high in fibre, have an adequate amount of protein and are low in sodium. Moreover, they are made from wholegrain which contributes to a low GI. As they are Barley based, they are particularly useful for people who have sensitivities to wheat, a common component of most breakfast cereals. The taste varies from product to product and I recommend clients try all 3 to determine which they like the most. The grainy texture of the cereals encourages patients to chew their foods thoroughly. This can be an important aspect in digestion of food. I am also pleased to recommend the Goodness Superfoods Wholegrain Barley wraps. Wraps can be a simple and effective way to have lunch and the new Wholegrain Barley wraps have fewer calories than 2 slices of most breads but remarkably more fibre. High fibre foods can be more filling and help in controlling blood sugar and cholesterol levels. I would be happy to recommend these foods as a staple for people trying to live healthier lives.
