Bircher muesli my way

Bircher muesli my way

I’m not a breakfast eater, but I have learned that if I skip breakfast I start to crave all the wrong things throughout the rest of the day. I usually start my day with fresh veggie and fruit juice but at about 10h00 I start to feel a bit peckish.

 On Sunday I made a batch of bircher muesli which I have kept in the fridge till now. I have eaten it as a mid morning snack (Adam has had it for breakfast) and it has helped keep my blood sugar balanced. When lunch time comes, I’m not ravenous, so I naturally moderated my portion size and choose healthier options.

 And it tastes delicious!

 

Bircher Muesli

Makes about 5 cups and lasts for 2 – 3 days in the fridge

2 cups of oats or cereal of choice

2 – 3 cups of fruit juice (I like to use apple or berry juice)

½ cup of coconut milk or yogurt

1 pinch of salt

1 cup of chopped nuts of choice

½ cup of omega mix seeds

1 tsp of vanilla essence or equivalent vanilla extract

 1 cup of fresh (or frozen) berries of choice

1 cup of grated apple or pear

In a sealable container combine all ingredients except the fruit and allow to soak for a few hours or overnight. Add extra apple juice or water if you feel the mixture is getting too dry at any point.

Stir for a bit to build up a creamy texture, then add the grated fruit and berries and combine lightly.

Can keep for a few days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container.
