    This gorgeous creation was prepared  for Innermost by the equally gorgeous Ayten (@eatnourishlove). Oats have a low glycemix index and help your body maintain glucose levels so you don't get that post-meal energy slump. Bananas are a great source of potassium - a diet rich in potassium can help lower blood pressure and the chances of heart disease. Bee pollen is packed with nutrients and one of nature's most complete foods. Chocolate - no additional explanation required.
