DIY local gourmet breakfast

Prebiotic Paleo Granola

By S Haslam

It’s quite nice living in a place that actually produces gourmet food products. It might take you years to discover them if you lived in some other part of the country. I don’t think my old local BiLo in Adelaide would be stocking food like the new Brookfarm Paleo Granola range. That’s a pity because these ‘premium cereals’ are much healthier than Black & Gold cocoa pops (well, most foods are!), but also don’t break the bank.

Obviously the use of premium, sustainably sourced and natural ingredients in the Brookfarm Paleo Granola range will drive up the price of a pack, that and the three months of research needed to produce a true ketogenic product that is high in good fats and low in sugar. The Brookfarm paleo range is very successful for them, so having decided to create new products in the range, they spent quite some time to get the flavours right too.

Because I believe that coffee is some sort of superfood that should be in every diet, I like the timesaving idea of the Espresso Paleo Granola, blending coffee roasted by Bun Coffee (a Byron Bay company) with wattleseed. The Prebiotic Granola blends almonds and coconut to ‘promote diversity in your gut’. The Keto Premium, on the other hand, has over 22% macadamias. The whole range focuses on wholefoods, and healthy fats, and is also gluten free and vegan.

Now, the thing is, when you are eating a food that’s high in good fats and low in sugar, you don’t need to eat fourteen bowls of it after exercising like a deranged ironman trying to break the Glycemic Index record. As the accompanying photos show, a moderate quantity on your natural yoghurt with fresh fruit won’t break the bank, but it will give you a great-tasting locally produced premium breakfast.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
