Having 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!
