Cranberries are low in calories and high in FIBRE. They are also a great source of immune boosting VITAMIN C and antioxidants (polyphenols, flavonols and the anti-inflammatory quercetin) that may prevent cellular damage linked to cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Coconut is high in SATURATED FAT; however, it contains high levels of LAURIC ACID, a saturated fat that research shows it increases your good cholesterol. However, as it does contain other saturated fats that may promote cardiovascular disease, consume in moderation.

Flaxseed is high in FIBRE and a good source of vegetarian OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS, which help reduce inflammation and support brain development.

Hemp Seeds are high in FIBRE and PROTEIN so when used in a dessert, they help balance your blood sugar levels. Hemp seeds are also high in OMEGA-3 and OMEGA-6 essential fatty acids.

Almonds are high in FIBRE and vegetarian PROTEIN and a good source of dairy-free CALCIUM for healthy teeth and bones.
