Deluxe Super Food Home Made Muesli

 

One of my personal goals this year is to buy foods with minimal packaging and reduce the amount of waste I send to landfill. I am so lucky to have the brilliant Staple Store nearby in Ripponlea and it is certainly creating a bit of a name for itself as the place to shop for all your basics. The lovely Katie stocks all the staples to buy in bulk that you need for healthy cooking. You can bring your own containers along or use (and then re-use) their paper bags. Check out your area to find where you can purchase foods in bulk. It really is a much better way to shop and makes such a difference to the amount of waste generated from food packaging.

I wandered into The Stape Store this week and purchased a few ingredients to make my own muesli, then added a few extra bits from the kitchen cupboard at home. Breakfast is one of my favourite meals of the day so I have to make sure it is a total taste sensation and keeps me full until I reach for my mid-morning snack  a couple of hours later. This muesli meets all those criteria plus it is jam packed full nutritional goodness!

At The Staple store I purchased some quinoa puffs, and a couple of my favourites from Loving Earth; caramelised buckinis and coconut chips. Quinoa is gluten free and contains more protein than any other grain. Coconut is a rich source of Lauric Acid (antifungal, antimicrobial). It is also a rich source of dietary fibre. These particular coconut chips are also organic and sulphite free. Caramelised buckinis give the muesli a bit of extra sweetness that will probably get your kids enjoying it too. You may have seen them at your local health food shop and I have to say they really are worth trying! Buckinis are made from buckwheat and sweetened with Agave and Mesquite. Buckwheat has a high protein content, and is especially high in Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine. They are soaked and dehydrated to allow for easier digestion and absorption of nutrients.

Once home I added some more ingredients for extra delciousness and goodness. I really LOVE the crunch and taste of roasted almonds in my breakfast cereals so they had to be included! A handful of goji berries, a serve of chia seeds and my deluxe super food home made muesli was done.

 The great thing about making your own muesli is that you can be very creative and fluid with it, the possibilities are endless. If your get your kids on board selecting the ingredients and mixing it all together they are much more likely to want to eat it too!

 

Enjoy.
