Although Pronutro is not everyone’s favourite bowl of “breakfast”, and some will say the taste is not unlike that of dusty cardboard. However, for those relegated to a high carbohydrate or bulking diet will be happy to know that a bowl of Pronutro is chock full of complex carbohydrates and will provide long-term energy and sustenance for peak muscle performance whilst lifting weights or performing intense activity, and can be made far more tasty by adding such things as Bulgarian low fat yoghurt or a teaspoon of honey. Have a look at the following nutritional values to get a better idea of the “Bokomo goodness” found in each bowl of Pronutro:
