Prep morning!

Last night, I prepped my breakfast for this morning so it was quick to make and I had time to get everything done I'd like to get done. I had homemade muesli, with 1/2 cup dry rolled oats mixed with a few chopped walnuts, sliced almonds, dried cherries, cinnamon and 1/2 cup soymilk overnight. This morning I added a big spoonful of greek yogurt for creaminess, a big sliced banana and a drizzle of agave. Always delicious and filling!

This morning, my focus is on prepping for my Italian kids' class- today we're doing healthy home made pizza by using whole wheat crust and reduced fat cheese with LOTS of veggies, and then we're making Italian alphabet cookies, which are so easy, but so much fun to make! This class should definately be a fun one, I'll just got to get my butt moving, making dough, slicing veggies...

where did you first hear about muselei? do you know what constitutes traditional muselei? have you tried other combos of dried fruit, nuts, etc? Just curious, I'm thinking about making some for breakfast tomorrow :)

I heard about muesli a couple years ago when I first went to Italy. It usually contains dry oats, dried fruit and nuts, sometimes seeds and is mixed with plain yogurt. Sometimes it's drizzled with honey as well.

I like using different kinds of nuts, I usually use dried cherries or raisins, and I prefer to soak mine overnight and add yogurt in the morning. To soak them, I add all the dry ingredients, add 1/2 cup soy milk and then greek yogurt and a banana in the morning.
