The fibre in this wholegrain toast with hazelnut, date and apple custard spread looks after the health of your gut and your heart. A healthy heart promotes good blood pressure levels, blood sugar levels and assists in keeping your body a healthy weight.

Dates are a great source of antioxidants that fight off free radicals. Also, copper works with iron to make red blood cells. Potassium promotes healthy blood pressure and magnesium keeps your nerves and muscles functioning well.

Wholegrain toast offers more fibre, vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals than refined bread. This includes B vitamins, iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium. Iron and zinc help to optimise your immune system function.

Hazelnuts are a great source of vitamin E that acts as an antioxidant and promotes skin health. Also, thiamine is needed to make energy from the food you eat and manganese which metabolises carbohydrates, fat, and protein. This recipe can be summarised as pure perfection.
