Quick Fact: Anthocyanins and flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life’s stressors, and the açaí berry is full of them! They also play a role in the body’s cell protection system. Free radicals are harmful byproducts produced by our bodies; eating a diet rich in antioxidants lessens the destructive power of free radicals, and may help reduce the risk of some diseases, such as heart disease and cancer!

Cinnamon_Oatmeal_Pancakes

 

Every recipe has a story! Amber shared hers with us: “The reason why I use a mixture of regular oats and steel cut oats is because steel cut oats are less processed, thus retaining more of its nutrition. Also, to spice it up, I added Crofters Natural Berry Jelly on each pancake layer, plus fresh cut D’Anjou Pears on top with chia seeds, coconut, raw agave nectar, and pumpkin seeds. So yummy!” –Amber
