    Fruit and Flax Breakfast Crumble

    This breakfast crumble includes flaxseed (rich in omega-3s to deliver anti-inflammatory benefits), berries (a source of antioxidant action thanks to vitamin C), and fiber-rich apples (because a well-functioning digestive system can contribute to a healthy complexion). It can also be repurposed as a dessert with just a dollop of maple syrup-sweetened vegan yogurt!
