Don’t forget the Fibre

Collage

Cheerful, light post today after a couple of heavy ones! My favourite, quick ish breakfast – home – made muesli and freshly squeezed juice.

Both are seriously tasty as well as being one of the perfect energy boosters known to earth. It’s always been the only thing that kept me going through 12 hours teaching day when there is no time to grab anything to eat until evening. They are full of fibre that keeps you full for ages.

I found the mix of carrots and oranges to be delicious so do give it a try if you haven’t already.

It’s fun to make your own muesli too and very alike mixing straights for your horse πŸ˜‰ Just get some rolled oats or whole grain oats, various seeds and nuts (if you aren’t allergic to them), dried fruit of all sorts and mix it all together. You will get a great product with no added sugar, preservatives, colourants, E numbers etc. that would otherwise be called Organic and sold for a small fortune at Whole Foods.

My very own home made muesli

I eat mine with milk or yoghurt but you can have it with water too apparently. I have never tried because I do love it with milk. Sometimes I add fresh fruit too like raspberries, blueberries, bananas or strawberries.

Just keep it away from your horse πŸ˜‰

I am adding some related articles below with recipes for home-made muesli in case you wanted to have a go.

    • Hahaha I actually tried once but they were just too dry! Apparently you can pour a little water over and put it in a microwave for a 30 secs or so, this makes them warm and moist and edible πŸ˜‰

      Carrot x Oranges dominant taste is definitely orange you are getting your dose of natural beta-Carotene without too much carrot-y taste πŸ™‚
