I’m sure everyone has said this before: I just don’t have time for breakfast! And I’m sure you’ve heard all of the ways to make time, like going to bed earlier, getting up a little earlier, getting organised the night before, having something just to grab and go. They all come down to the same thing. You still have to do something everyday. But what if I can give you a breakfast meal that takes 2 minutes to make in the morning, would you give it a try? Granted it takes 10 minutes once a fortnight to put it together, but each morning all you have to do is pour it into a bowl and add some liquid. It’s your very own breakfast cereal without all of the sugar but with more of the taste.
I make my muesli once a fortnight, sometimes once a month. It stays fresh and it’s super easy to prepare. All of the ingredients last a long time on their own, and they last a long time when put together. It has a mix of protein, carbohydrates and fat and if you don’t like my combination you can mix and match with what you have and what you love.
The mixing part is my favourite. It’s all put together in an air tight container and then just shake it all around, tip and shake and tip and shake.
Serve with your favourite nut milk, coconut water, coconut yogurt, berries, or banana and cinnamon.
I put a cup of frozen berries in a heatproof bowl, pour boiling water from the kettle over the top to defrost them, leave to sit while I empty the dishwasher/make lunch/pack my bag/whatever morning things I have to do, then drain and pour onto the muesli. The liquid of the berries is usually enough to not have to add milk or any other liquid.
Do you have a go to breakfast food that’s fast and healthy? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to try it.Print
