Serving Suggestion

As this dish is high in protein, fibre & good fats you will only need a tablespoon of this muesli sprinkled over some yoghurt and some fresh or poached fruit to zoom through your day.  Stewed apples are a great prebiotic to boost your healthy gut bacteria too.

Variations

Try a variety of nuts & seeds each time you make it.

Treat the kids or yourself and add a tablespoon or two of raw cacao powder, it’s packed with antioxidants.

Nutrient boosting tip

Soak nuts & seeds in filtered water overnight for 24hrs. Drain & allow to dry slowly in very low heat oven.  Soaking breaks down the phytic acid allowing more of the mineral content of the nuts and seeds to be absorbed. Just 3-4 brazil nuts per day will give you your daily allowance of selenium a powerful antioxidant and vital nutrient for thyroid health.
