Superfood homemade muesli, today . . . cookies, tomorrow.
Life is all about balance, right?
Food bloggers are told to find their “niche.” Something like baking or veganism or smoothies or what-have-you. A domain that they can own and a consistency that their readers can come to expect.
Well . . . as much as it pains me to admit it . . . I don’t eat cookies every day. Or cookie dough every day. Or cake every day. But . . . as evidenced by 90% of this blog, I am certainly not a health fanatic. So what am I? I am a master justification maker. Eating homemade muesli in the morning and cookie dough in the evening. Healthy superfood eater by morning and indulgent dessert sinner by night. I drink my protein smoothies after the gym to justify my chocolate brownies and netflix.
Tell me I’m not the only shameless fence-sitter on matters of health and dessert???
Superfood Homemade Muesli
Muesli is my new favorite obsession for breakfasts. We all know that cereal is tops in the realm of convenient, quick, and easy breakfasts. But store-bought cereal is often low on health benefits. Homemade muesli? Stuffed full of superfoods and health benefits!
- a healthy dose of protein
- omega 3 essential fatty acids
- vitamins and minerals, including magnesium and zinc
- cholesterol-lowering phytosterols
- soluble fiber
- anti-inflammatory ingredients
- so unbelievably yummy!!!
You’re welcome for those google-ing skills. But seriously–the list could go on and on. One of the best things about homemade muesli is that it can be nearly as convenient as store-bought cereal. Set aside one day to throw this stuff together and then you can store it in jars for a quick and easy, healthy breakfast.
