The key to eating well and creating new healthy habits is to keep meals simple. This simple bircher muesli is a fantastic recipe that you can make on the weekend to last you 5 days. It takes less than 5 minutes to prepare which is another bonus. I like to make this up when I know I have a busy week ahead and don’t have time to prep food in the morning. You can store it in individual jars or keep it in one large bowl (make sure it’s covered) in the fridge. Top it with fruit, yoghurt extra nuts and seeds for a delicious healthy start to the day!
Makes 5 servings
2.5 cups of oats
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup walnuts
10 brazil nuts
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup cranberries
¼ cup shredded coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
Cover with unsweetened almond milk or water (roughly 3-3.5 cups worth)
Optional: 4-5 tbsp protein powder (good for those who workout regularly)
Add all ingredients together into a large bowl. Stir together until well combined.
Pop it into the fridge as it is or add the bircher into individual glass jars so you can grab them and go in the morning.
If you keep the mixture in a bowl, in the morning add 1/5 of the bircher into a bowl, top with fresh fruit, a handful of nuts, a couple tablespoons of yoghurt and enjoy!
