Digestive Biscuits..I Love You!

How a person starts his/her day can make a big difference which making breakfast and between-meal snacks very important.
A balanced breakfast will include carbohydrates and protein. The carbs will produce energy until lunchtime while the protein works to stave off hunger while the energy is still there to burn. That's why I choose Digestives

What is Digestive Biscuit?
A digestive biscuit is a type of cookie or biscuit made with coarse wheat flour, ground wholemeal, a light amount of sugar, and a rising agent such as baking soda, along with oil, salt, and sometimes milk as well. The result is a slightly savory cookie with a crumbly texture and a simple flavor which some people find quite appealing. Digestives are closely linked with British culture, and they continue to be consumed in vast amounts in the United Kingdom well over 100 years after they were first developed. This semi sweet biscuit  is also very popular in Greece, Australia and Ireland.
These Digestives are also available with chocolate covered biscuits. These are eaten with coffee or tea. These are sometimes dunked into tea and eaten because biscuits disintegrate when they are wet.

Do digestive cookies aid digestion?
Digestive cookies simply have more fiber and whole grain flour than regular ones. Fiber is known to aid digestion by prolonging the time for food processing in the body. The cookies will definitely be better for your digestion than regular ones, but there are far better sources of fiber than digestion cookies.
