I have 3 eggs and a bowl of oats everyday for breakfast, day in, day out. So to keep things interesting I rotate my eggs between; poached eggs, an omelette and scrambled eggs (in descending order of favouritism). I also rotate my oats between; porridge, muesli and granola (again descending). I then rotate the brands I use, a few firm favourites are Rude Health, Dorset Cereals and Moma. With all that variation it is difficult to see how one might get bored, but I do often circle back to products I have tried before. So something I have started doing recently is creating my own healthy muesli recipes.
They are cheap, easy and quick to make. Pop them in a jar and they will keep for a couple of weeks, no problem. Doing this allows you to create any flavour you like and mix things up on a far more regular basis.
I have also started using Arla BOB (Best Of Both) milk. It is skimmed milk designed to taste like semi-skimmed. I know what you are wondering, does it? Well yeah, actually it’s really tasty. I thought it could be another gimmick, but no, it’s delicious and nutritious.
You are wondering how can this be? Well they remove the fat, just the same as you would to get skimmed milk, then they add a little bit of the milk protein back in to make it a little creamier. Simple!
Regardless of what you pair it with, Arla BOB or not, give this cracking homemade muesli recipe a try and let me know what you think.
