Simple and Nutritious Muesli

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for a while, and without having a stove, I decided this was the perfect time to try it out. If you’ve been following my blog for some months, you may have seen that I took a trip to Germany this past April. I found it difficult to eat healthy during lunch and dinner there, but there were typically healthy selections at breakfast. Our hotels provided our morning meal in a buffet style. A staple at almost every hotel was muesli. At first, I wasn’t quite sure what it was, but I saw the raw oats in it and decided to give it a try. It was delicious!

There are many different variations of muesli. The dish is basically a combination of raw oats and various mixed nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and more. While in Germany, I even found a variation that had dark chocolate pieces instead of raisins (needless to say, I fell in love). This dish is perfect for breakfast, a pre-workout snack, or a snack at any time of day. It is full of fiber and contains healthy fats and some protein as well.

It’s extremely easy to prepare; you just need the ingredients. I visited a local health food store that had a bulk foods area where you purchase as much as you want of a certain ingredient. The items are priced by the pound, so for this recipe, it was very inexpensive. Plus, it was fun to pick out the ingredients! Give this recipe a try and get a little taste of Germany in the comfort of your home!
