Muesli Breakfast

 

Although I am a big advocate of having variety in the diet, I must admit, I eat this breakfast almost every single day. I just can’t get enough of it!! Not only is it healthy, it is high in fiber, heart-healthy, energizing, and tastes like heaven! It takes me literally a minute to throw together, and probably less to eat (although I try to take my time!!).

Breakfast, being a key meal of the day, should never be skipped, and honestly, if you try this one, you will have a really hard time skipping it! Eating a healthy breakfast with complex carbohydrates keeps you satisfied all morning, gives you energy for the day, and gives your digestive system a nice wake-up call in the A.M. Seriously, you HAVE to try this!!!

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup unsweetened muesli (I get mine in the bulk section at the grocery store!)
  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries/raspberries (or any other berries you may prefer – I got some Saskatoon berries from a friend the other day and I plan to try those!)
  • a drizzle, little drizzle, of honey or pure maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Place yogurt into a bowl, top with the muesli and chia seeds
  2. Top with sliced banana and berries

  • This sounds absolutely delightful! Except one tiny thing… bananas make my stomach upset. Any suggestions on something I could substitute?

  • I make a breakfast (or anytime!) muesli this way: Put some oatmeal (2-3 c.) in a bowl. Cover with milk. Add 2 bananas that have been processed in the food processor (or just mashed with a fork). Grate or chunk up 1 apple and add to mixture. Add any other fruit you like in bite sized pieces. Stir. You can add a teaspoon of lemon juice if you like; the bananas will turn slightly brown after storing, but it doesn’t affect the taste. My favorite fruits to add: grapes, blueberries, cantaloupe, peaches. YUM! and easy,peasy!
