Continuing with my resolution to share simple ways to incorporate healthy foods into your diet, here is my Muesli recipe. Made with rolled oats, it is packed with healthy fiber and nutritious nuts and seeds. Soaking the muesli overnight makes the nuts and seeds easier to digest.
Oats have been found to lower bad cholesterol levels in the blood, lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, and the risk of certain types of heart disease and cancer. Studies also have shown oats help stabilize blood sugar in Type 2 diabetes patients. Serving your muesli with chopped fruit boosts the flavor and health benefits.
I first had Muesli at a bed and breakfast in Switzerland. They served it cold with sliced bananas. My family likes the version below, heated. Put it together the night before. Heat and enjoy in the morning.
