Easy Breakfast Recipe: Muesli
What is a Gluten Free Lifestyle? Basically a way of eating that avoids gluten, because gluten causes gut inflammation, in people with and without Celiac disease.
The food industry has a multitude of processed foods, including cereal, with chemicals and preservatives to increase shelf life, and added sugar so it will taste better. READ INGREDIENT LABELS! If you cannot pronounce it, you shouldn’t eat it. Whole natural foods have no ingredient label. Scientific studies indicate several serious health risks associated with processed foods, like obesity, Type II Diabetes, heart disease and gut inflammation.
This easy breakfast recipe is one of my favorites. I prepare it Sunday night and breakfast is ready every morning until it’s gone. This homemade Muesli, has less sugar, and calories than store bought cereals, but best of all it is high in nutrition and fiber, which helps regulate the digestive system, it’s a filling meal, decreases gut inflammation and helps with weight control.
Easy Breakfast Muesli
1/3 cup Bob's Red Mill steel cut oats
1/4 Tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. ground walnuts, Brazil nuts &/or pecans
1 Tbsp. ground flax seed
1 Tbsp. Chia seeds
1 Tbsp. Almond butter
3/4 - 1 cup Almond milk (depending on consistency desired)
In a 4 cup glass bowl (with a lid), combine the oats, cinnamon, ground nuts and flax seeds & mix well, then add chia seeds and almond butter. Add a splash of almond milk and mix the nut butter into the oats. Then gradually add rest of milk and stir to combine to desired consistency. Place lid on the bowl and refrigerate overnight.
Next make your homemade apple topping which is high in fiber, vitamin C, antioxidants and is easy and delicious.
Slice and core 1 washed unpeeled organic apple (I like gala) place in food processor and pulse until grated.
Place in a 2 cup glass bowl (with a lid), add 1 Tbsp. of unsweetened apple cider and 1 Tsp. cinnamon. Place lid on the bowl and refrigerate overnight.
Or you can top with a 1/2 cup fruit (like thawed organic blueberries, raspberries or fresh sliced strawberries, bananas, or mango).
Helping your gut stay healthy by consuming fiber to support your good gut bacteria and keep it running smooth and regular is a good idea in any diet plan.
Meal planning, using a grocery list, cooking ahead and home cooking is how I maintain my gluten free lifestyle. Everyone is busy, but with a little preparation you can make it work.
