MARSHA’S MUESLI

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to Nutritionists and Dieticians. The reason is this, breakfast breaks the overnight fast ( when we sleep) and according to my dietician, replenishes our supply of glucose while providing essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Thus providing energy so we can get through our day.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I scramble trying to find different ways to make oatmeal, hot cereal etc. I like to get that fiber in

Enter Muesli (or birdseed as I like to fondly call it). Lets be birdies, just for one day.

Ah, a refreshing (healthy) change.

I looked at some recipes and decided to make my very own (okay, I did not have many of the ingredients on hand so I improvised).

Low and Behold, Marsha’s Muesli was born. Oh sweet child o’ mine.

Let that be a testament that you can really play around with your muesli.

Play with it.

Top it.

Make it.

Use what you have.

It tasted so good. I gave my husband a spoonful and he liked it so much, he had to have more.

Experiment. Try it. Your body will thank you for it.
