WHO CAN ENJOY OUR TANKER TOPPER CRUNCHY MUESLI?
Everyone! But, functionally it can specifically assist breastfeeding mums to help boost their milk supply. It is delicious and full of amazing goodness for Mum and bub. We know that everyone needs to start the day off right and the way we need to do that is by eating a proper breakfast. How many Mum’s get time to sit down for a decent breakfast? Not many. By nourishing oneself with a serve of this muesli topped with some yoghurt and fresh fruit whether it is in between the first morning feed, changing nappies, getting the older kids ready for school then not only will a more energetic day follow but also hopefully more milk to deliver to the little one. We want to make life easier for Mum’s, we want to nourish then and teach them to look after themselves so they have the resources to take care of the little ones in their need.
Each ingredient in our Tanker Topper Crunchy Muesli has been carefully selected and plays an important role in not only helping mums meet their breastfed baby’s needs but also their own health which is often ignored during this demanding time.
Even if you have stopped breastfeeding but are looking for a tasty, healthful breakfast or topper for your oats or yoghurt treat grab some of this Crunchy Muesli to keep you satisfied and on your toes.
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU EAT?
We recommend you eat 60gm of granola per day to help boost your supply.
Feel free to use it in combination with other other Tanker Toppers. Think Crunchy Muesli for breakfast, a savory Fennel & Fennugreek Cracker with salmon and avocado for lunch, a couple of Choc Chip Tankers for afternoon tea and why not complete the foursome with a Fig & Almond Tanker for your midnight snack whilst feeding your cherub! Your boobs won’t know what has hit them!
Most Mum’s see milky benefits after eating one 60gm serve of Crunchy Muesli, so if you fancy eating some of our other Tankers Toppers during the day maybe reduce your serving size accordingly. Remember, everyone is different and we all require varying amounts of functional foods to produce an effect. You may need more or less of the recommended serves to gain a boost in supply.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
A dairy, egg, refined sugar and flour free breakfast or snack for YOU!
We love this Crunchy Muesli. What more could you ask for? It is a nourishing muesli without any nasties but it comes with benefits! It is also completely vegan friendly as we have not used eggs or honey.
Need Milk? Our key ‘Galactogogue’ ingredients are Australian oats, brewers yeast and flaxseed meal. Each has their own reputation to boost breast milk supply and have been used for years by Mums all over the world.
Are you tired? Did you know brewers is naturally abundant in B group vitamins, magnesium and iron. All extremely important for energy production. Not to mention all of the other amazing superfood ingredients; they are jam packed with energy enhancing nutrients.
Are you sugar cravings out of control? Brewer’s yeast contains high amounts of chromium as does cinnamon. Chromium helps to balance bloody sugar levels. The good fats and protein in this muesli will also help to keep you fuller for longer and help with these cravings as well.
Heal and recover quickly post partum from any tears or cesarean wounds. The bioflavonoid rutin found in buckwheat as well as the decent protein levels found in linseed meal and brewer’s yeast means this muesli may assist in repairing the body’s cells post partum trauma.
Better bowel habits… you are all use to talking about poo and seeing truckloads of it… No princesses here! Our Crunchy Muesli is full of ingredients beneficial for bowel health – fibre and good fats that promote good poo that is easy to move!
As believers of limiting dairy and refined flour in one’s diet for good health this Tanker Topper Crunchy Muesli ticks the boxes. It is also honey and egg free meaning vegans can enjoy it too.
Take a look at some of the highlighted ingredients and get excited…
Oats are one of the most well regarded Galacogogues going around and not to mention of the original ‘super foods’. Naturally high in iron and fibre this common comfort food is a winner for mums. This warming and relaxing quality of oats has been thought to be one of the reasons behind aiding in a faster let-down, which in turn can build a healthy milk supply.
Certified organic buckinis (Buckwheat)
Buckwheat is not related to wheat at all. It is actually a gluten free seed and is one of the best sources of high quality, easily digestible proteins. We love buckwheat because it is rich in the bioflavonoid rutin, a very important nutrient for mum’s indeed as it assists in strengthening connecting tissue. In addition, buckwheat can help to draw excess fluid from your body (fluid retention). We all know that puffy feeling in those last few months and post baby delivery don’t we?
Thank you buckwheat. Shall we hand you over the muesli now?
This highly nutritive yeast is naturally rich in B complex vitamins, essential for energy production and they are one of the key supportive vitamins for the nervous system. Brewers yeast also contains the blood sugar balancing nutrient chromium, perfect to help keep you running all day long and free from sugar lows.
It is also packed with iron, a nutrient commonly deficient in new mums as well as the anti-oxidant selenium to help keep you young, got to love that! Brewer’s yeast has been recommended by midwives and folk health care providers for years and it is one of the most traditional galactogogues going around.
Linseed meal is wonderful source of omega 3 fats, fibre and calcium as well as phosphorus. So the fact we use this means you are getting one heck of a good dose of these beneficial nutrients.
Organic Coconut oil
We chose coconut oil as the perfect fat for our products. It’s health benefits are what drew us to using this amazing ingredient. Did you know organic coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids which is actually a very health and necessary type of saturated fat. It can aid in boosting one’s metabolism, improving the health and skin and hair and generally overall organ health. Using coconut oil instead of margarine or other not so healthy trans fats means our bikkies are dairy free and free of nasty trans fats.
Think brain health and memory, anti-aging, anti-cancer, blood sugar stabilisation and weight control… and this is not all. Walnuts are one of the best nuts going so it was an easy pick to include them in our Crunchy Muesli. Enjoy not on the texture and taste but also the health benefits!
The natural caramel! We love dates, their natural caramel sweetness and the fact they are rich in fibre. Something every Mum needs! They are also naturally high in iron and have also galactagogue properties. What a winner!
