So many cereals, even the 'healthy' ones, have a really high sugar content per serving. Whilst this is fine every now and again, it's not how you want to start your day. Sugary cereal can lead to blood sugar spikes, which can affect endometriosis symptoms such as pain, fatigue and hormonal imbalances.
This version below is very low in sugar, but if you'd like it a little sweeter, add some dried fruit. And for some extra decadence, why not add some cacao nibs or dark chocolate curls!
