It’s no surprise that oats are some of the healthiest foods around. They contain more soluble fiber than any other grain to keep you full longer and help things move along smoothly digestion-wise. Because they’re digested slower, oats prevent spikes in blood sugar levels that benefit people with diabetes.
Organic Chia Seeds
As one of the highest plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds are also very high in fiber and contain up to 23% protein by weight. The omega-3 fatty acids in chia seeds get converted into DHA in the body. This is useful because DHA is predominantly found in fish oil. Chia seeds are also great for athletes, they aid in muscle and tissue regeneration and prevent spikes in insulin.
If you want your face to feel as soft and smooth as a baby’s tush, a single serving of almonds has 50% of the Vitamin E you need in a day to help you achieve that strange goal.

After considering and testing several sweet binders like honey and molasses, Naked Hippie discovered that maple syrup is the best in terms of taste and nutrition. This condensed tree sap has all the nutrients you’d expect from a vegetable like manganese and zinc, but in a much sweeter package. To boot, it’s an unrefined vegan sugar with 15 times more calcium than honey and 54 compounds that have anticancer, antibacterial and anti-diabetic powers.
