Bircher Muesli

Sometimes the simplest things really are the best! This simple breakfast takes around 5-10 mins to prepare the night before, and is hearty, nutritious and yummy. It boasts the goodness of chia seeds, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds along with almonds, oats and coconut cream.

Chia seeds and flax seeds absorb liquid and become jelly-like, which makes the muesli wonderfully thick and creamy. They also contain plenty of fibre. Their consistency has a soothing effect on digestion which makes them great for colon health. The nuts and seeds are packed full of protein and minerals. Soaking the muesli overnight enables enzyme activity to break down phytic acid, which hinders our body’s absorption of minerals.

For breakfast on the run, just put it in a container with a lid (and don’t forget the spoon! 🙂
