WHAT IS FOR BREAKFAST?
When it comes to breakfast, I tend to find something that I like...and I am able to eat it most every morning for weeks. Then slowly I find something else that sounds good and I am able to eat that for weeks. A week or two ago, I had been eating STEEL CUT OATS for breakfast most mornings (check out our recipe in our recipe section here). Within the last week I have started eating a new breakfast...
Right now, I am loving MUESLI!
Maintanence Mommy added a wonderful Muesli recipe to our recipe section- this is the RECIPE that I use. Muesli is basically soaked oats, grains, nuts & seeds (raw) eaten with fresh fruit.
I don't add all the ingredients listed...but that is the great thing about this recipe, you don't have to have all the ingredients to make a wonderful breakfast Muesli. You could make Muesli using oatmeal, coconut and cinnamon if you wanted to.
Here is what I do:
I add all the ingredients that I want to a container and shake it up well. I place this container in the freezer. I make a double recipe so it will last me weeks- and it is ready when I need it.
Right when I wake up...I pour 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of the mixture into my bowl and pour the same amount of rice milk over the top.
I let is soak in the bowl all morning- while I am getting ready, exercising, and getting the kids ready for school.
I let the MUESLI soak until the ingredients have softened- which is usually about 2 hours or so.
Then I chop up a variety of fruit and mix it in- and I sometimes add some chopped raw walnuts and ground flax seed for extra nutrients (Why walnuts and flax seed? See my EFA blog here).
I usually always add chopped apples and pears...but sometimes I add cut up grapes and bananas. Blackberries make it extra yummy!
This is such a EASY and YUMMY breakfast! You have to try it!
