This fresh and light breakfast is not only high in protein and fibre to keep you satisfied throughout the morning but so tasty it will become a summer breakfast staple. Fruit and seeds are high in tryptophan, a compound that helps to make serotonin (our happy hormone) in the gut. A diet low in tryptophan is likely to impact melatonin and sleep! So eat and enjoy, sleep and be happy!
