Papaya-berry granola breakfast

This is what I've been having for breakfast lately and I thought I'd share as it's not only super healthy but yummy too!

I've replaced my yogurt with coconut yoghurt (vegan, dairy free) in the past few months and have felt the difference. I get less bloated. Animal protein has always been a frenemy of mine.

All ingredients you need are below. it's so simple it's a no recipe really- just chop, mix and eat:).

Papaya health benefits
Ripe papaya contains nearly a 3 day supply of vitamin C, and a significant amount of vitamins E and A, which are both needed for the proper function of a healthy immune system. It is also rich in anti-oxidants, B vitamins, folic an pantothenic acid, fible and potassium and magnesium. Together these nutrients provide amazing protection against colon cancer.
The papaya-enzyme papain plays a key role in digestive processes involving breaking down tough protein fibers. For this reason, it has been commonly used in its native South America as a digestive support for meat eating.

Science is catching up with the wisdom of traditional healers in South America. Papain can play a significant role in the breakdown of toxins and is a powerful antiseptic, digestive aid, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.
