In your hot drinks, it is better to use Filipino moscovado sugar and not white sugar in order to protect your intestinal flora and strengthen your immune system, according to Female version. The consumption of oatmeal is optimal since this low-sweet and fiber-rich product reinforces the feeling of satiety. It is also possible to ingest muesli, rusks, smoothies or even fruit juices, provided that these foods do not contain added sugar.
Wholemeal bread instead of white bread
