Why we love Totally Devoted Cookies
Each of their cookies has a wholesome mix of oats, linseeds, coconut oil, buckwheat flour and cinnamon to help support a mum and their families’ health.
Oats provide dietary fibre to help relieve constipation, which is very helpful for a lot of pregnant women. It’s a good source of essential vitamins such as thiamine, folic acid, biotin and vitamin e. Oats also have a low glycemic index which means you’ll have longer lasting energy!
Linseeds are a rich source of omega 3 essential fatty acids which can help prevent excess biochemicals that the body produces under stress, making it great for busy parents.
Coconut oil is dairy and wheat free. It contains lauric acid which is a medium chain fatty acid. Mothers’ milk also contains lauric acid so how great is that for a lactation cookie! It’s also known as an antifungal, antiviral and antimicrobial. Another great attribute for a breastfeeding mother. It’s great for your hair and skin as well.
Buckwheat flour is high in b vitamins, lysine, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc and copper. It’s also high in fibre. It contains the eight essential amino acids. It’s a rich supply of flavonoids and best of all its gluten free!
