Why Mesquite?

Despite its sweetness, mesquite flour (made by grinding whole pods) "is extremely effective in controlling blood sugar levels" in people with diabetes, its GI is only 25. The sweetness comes from fructose, which the body can process without insulin. In addition, soluble fibers, such as galactomannin gum, in the seeds and pods slow absorption of nutrients, resulting in a flattened blood sugar curve, unlike the peaks that follow consumption of wheat flour, corn meal and other common staples.

Mesquite is high in protein and it contains good quantities of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc, while being rich in the amino acid lysine.

Perfect to start a powerful Monday!



Gluten free organic oatmeal
Organic coconut milk (or any other milk you like)
Half an apple
Half a nectarine
Some nuts of your choice
Cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon of Mesquite



Prepare your oatmeal as you always do. Once your oatmeal is ready, mix in the mesquite.

Cut the fruits

Dispose the fruits and nuts on top of the oatmeal and sprinkle some cinnamon.

I do it also with caramelised fruits. Just place the fruits in a pan with some coconut oil and cinnamon, stir until golden.
