Before I get to the heart of this post… aka a delicious, healthy, and – again – delicious cold whole grain cereal recipe starring Vanilla Almond Milk and Bob’s Red Mill Muesli… I just want to give a little sermon about eating healthy.
I promise to make it short.
There are a lot of health problems we can prevent simply by putting healthier foods into our bodies. Diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer are monsters none of us wants to ever find on our doorstep. The odds of them showing up (talk about unwelcomed guests!) can be greatly reduced simply by eating healthier foods.
I’ve always tried to eat as healthy as I possibly can, and strive to feed my family the healthiest meals possible. Fortunately, there are a lot (and I mean A LOT) of deliciously healthy and healthily delicious foods available these days. Truth be told, healthy tastes better than unhealthy these days.
My most recent find is one of my favorites: A delicious cold whole grain cereal made with Bob’s Feed Mill Old Country Style Muesli. On the back of the bag, there are recipes and instructions for hot cereal and for cold cereal. The hot is freaking amazing, but I’ve become somewhat addicted to the cold cereal. I’ve made it with milk, 2 percent milk, coconut milk, almond milk, and apple juice – and it’s wonderful with each and every one. However, when it pairs with Vanilla Almond Milk, it’s simply out of this world fantastic.
It’s also STUPID GOOD with vanilla yogurt.
I love a bowl at breakfast and have fallen in love with having a bowl before bedtime. If you’re going to have late night snacks (and if you’re like me, you pretty much insist upon it) – they might as well be healthy ones, right?
Look in your grocery’s health food section or cereal aisle for this as well as other varieties of Bob’s Red Mill products. I think we’ve tried them all in our house – and have never been anything but blown away.
Cold Cereal: Soak 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Muesli in 1/2 cup yogurt, milk, or fruit juice for 5 – 10 minutes (or overnight like the Swiss do) and enjoy. Makes 1 serving.
Breakfasts are especially tricky when trying to eat healthier. There are so many unhealthy ways to go wrong. Bob’s Red Mill cereals can help keep you on the right road – the road that leads to better health and a longer life.
That’s a road I want to stay on!
