And yes the muesli is home-made! Why spend ridiculous amounts of money on teeny tiny boxes of commercial muesli that is probably full of added sugar and preservatives when you can whip up a big batch of your own that will not only taste amazing but will work out to be a quarter of the price in the long run!
You can make as little as much as you like but my muesli combo is actually my mums concoction and usually consists of the following…
– Dry Roasted Mixed Nuts (Almonds, Hazelnuts, Walnuts, Pistachios, cashews)
– Coconut Shavings
– Nitrate-Free Dried Fruit such as sultanas, apples, apricots, pears, peaches, craisins
– Pumpkin Seeds, pepitas and Chia Seeds!
Add a small serve of this delicious concoction to a bowl and then top with fresh/frozen berries, chopped banana and a dollop of low-fat natural yoghurt and I doubt you will left unsatisfied. Not only is this breakky tastey but it has a host of health benefits too! Firstly all the nuts and seeds pack a hearty punch of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids (namely omega-3’s which most of us do not consume enough of) that will help boost immunity and energy. They have also been shown to help improve digestive health and weight control and even reduce heart disease risk. The dried fruits also have their own unique compositions of important vitamins and minerals whilst also increasing your fibre intake! The oats too are full of fibre to help keep you feeling fuller for longer! When you combine all this with a good dose of calcium from the yoghurt and the goodness of some fresh fruit on top you’ve got yourself a pretty well rounded start to the morning! What did you have for breakfast this morning????
