One of my favorite things to have for breakfast is some old-fashion muesli cereal. While I do enjoy the occasional bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, I am more of a cold cereal person so muesli is the perfect match!
So what is muesli you ask? Muesli (pronounced myoos-lee) goes back to the 1800’s when it was developed by a Swiss nutritionist. The cereal is made from a blend of whole grains (such as rolled oats, wheat, rye, triticale, and barley), dried fruits (commonly dates and raisins), nuts, and seeds (like sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, and flaxseed). Muesli can be served hot or cold or even eaten right out of the bag as a snack! Mix equal parts water or milk and muesli. Microwave for about 3 minutes for a delicious hot bowl of breakfast cereal or allow to soak for 10 minutes or overnight in the fridge for a cold bowl of cereal instead.
My favorite is soaking my muesli with soymilk or almond milk overnight. This perfect breakfast, packed with whole grains, protein, fiber, and healthy fats, is quick and easy and gets me going in the morning!
You can buy muesli cereal in just about any grocery store in the health food section. The two brands I recommend are Bob’s Red Mill Old Country Style Muesli and Hodgson Mill Apples & More Muesli; both are delicious! Try some muesli for your next breakfast meal!
