Muesli SweetOnionHaving a hard time deciding what to eat first thing in the morning? I’ve got you covered. Not a morning person myself, I want a breakfast that is not only healthy and yummy, but also super-easy to prepare. Muesli, a cereal concoction popular in Switzerland and southern Germany, is just that. Prepare your muesli mix once every two weeks, and it will give you a continuous supply of macro- and micronutrients. Although it looks like granola it is better because it comes without added sugar or fat.

The basis of muesli is oats. Check out this article on oats by World’s Healthiest Foods. Just a quarter cup of this grain covers your entire daily needs of manganese, an important building block of metabolic enzymes and a factor in good bone growth. A quarter cup of oats also contains molybdenum, phosphorus, copper, biotin, and other minerals and vitamins so important for our health.

To the oats you add nuts, seeds, and dried fruit that you find in the bulk, baking, or dried fruit aisle of your grocery store, and you’ve got yourself a filling meal. Mix and match, add and subtract. There are few limits to your imagination!

Recipe Notes

To prepare a bowl of muesli, add 1 cup of muesli mix to a cereal bowl. Add two tbsp of ground flaxseed and fresh fruits of your choice. Top with non-dairy milk.

The ground flaxseed supplies you with valuable omega-3 fatty acids. Store it in the fridge to keep it from going rancid.

    I enjoyed the video very much and will definitely make some muesli. Question for you — I had delicious muesli at a resort but it was creamy. It wasn’t tart like yogurt but slightly sweet. Are you familiar with that kind of muesli?

    Thank you Rebecca! Well, muesli can be made in a bunch of different ways. My guess is that the muesli at your resort was creamy because it was made with quick oats. They might also have put cream and sugar into it. Not good for you, but restaurants and hotels don’t think of what keeps their customers healthy in the long run. Their interest is only in what tickles your taste buds short-term and what keeps you coming back. Your health is not their problem.
