tiger nut milk foods

Tiger Nuts and Milk

Rarely will you find some­one who hasn’t eat­en tiger nuts at least once in their life­time. Many, how­ev­er, are not aware of the immense health ben­e­fits inher­ent in it. Tiger nuts are a great source of fibre, pro­tein and mag­ne­sium. For those look­ing to con­trol their blood pres­sure, look no fur­ther, ‘tiger-nut­ting’ is the way to go. They do a great job in reg­u­lat­ing blood sug­ar lev­els. Tiger nuts can also be made into milk and oil, pro­vid­ing a great sub­sti­tute for ani­mal milk and olive oil.




Smooth­ies are arguably the cheap­est and eas­i­est foods to make in this cat­e­go­ry. They con­tain essen­tial anti-oxi­dants, min­er­als and vit­a­mins need­ed to get your day start­ed. All you need to make your smooth­ie is just a blender, your choice of fruits (orange, straw­ber­ry, apple) and a base such as water, milk or yoghurt. Remem­ber, mod­er­a­tion in con­sump­tion is key. Too much of smooth­ie in your sys­tem is tan­ta­mount to tak­ing too much of can­dy, which can lead to gain­ing of excess weight.
