Top of the Mornin' to You! as the Irish say! :D:D:D
Today I made some muesli. I was hungry in the morning which I'm usually not, but wanted something healthy because I had not been eating too well. When I checked in with my body, I wanted some fruits, nuts etc...so I happened to have lots of dried ones on hand and so Muesli was the answer. I must stress all these things must be fresh and not old or rancid.....it defeats the point and you'll not be encouraged to continue eating it because you can taste it, and its not good.....fresh ingredients only.
I had some whole almonds I broke up in the blender a bit, some pumpkin seeds, dried mulberries and goldenberries, some raisins, powdered cinnamon, and walnuts. You can add anything you like. I wish I had some dried raspberries. What you do after is mixing this together is what makes the meal delicious!
I decided to make this a post after the fact and just lined up the ingredients and took a picture.
I mixed about an equal portion of each item into a large bowl. This is an open thing, mix in what you like most. This is when you add your cinnamon to taste.
This is the fun part. I added some of this mixture into my bowl, added some almond milk first so it begins to soften the nuts and dried berries a bit, added some honey, two hefty spoonfuls of Greek yogurt which is to me like ice cream! lol.....a couple teaspoons of Rose Preserves, and lastly two pinches of ground cardamon from my gorgeous Turkish Spice Grinder :D. I would definitely say the yogurt, Rose Preserves and cardamon are a must!
A beautiful healthy homemade natural, delicious and raw breakfast!
I think this makes a wonderful gift too, for those who want something homemade, something healthy, or for those who do not eat healthy this could be a perfect introduction into a healthy breakfast that tastes deliciously "unhealthy" LOL.....you can pack this into mason jars, add a ribbon and gift them away!
