A gal can get pretty tired of eggs for breakfast.

Pretty. Damn. Tired.

I miss the day when breakfasts were simple -when you wandered down to the kitchen, blurry-eyed and semi-comatose, shook some sugary grains out of a box into a bowl, added milk and ate.

Of course, my belly does not miss those days in the slightest and I find that the older I get, the more I become a prisoner to the endless demands of my digestive system (sorry belly, love you really).

This is my attempt to re-create the breakfast cereals of yore, while still maintaining the grain-free diet that’s served me well all these years.

Since I’m Whole30-ing, I didn’t add the raisins (didn’t want the extra sweetness) and I used coconut milk, but that’s the beauty of this recipe – it can be tweaked to suit your own household.

Very Berry Muesli (makes one generous serving)

  • 1 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp raw, shelled, hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 10-12 raspberries
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 tbsp raisins (optional)
  1. Toss the seeds, nuts, coconut and raisins together until well blended.
  2. Gently fold in the berries.
  3. Cover with milk to serve and eat immediately.
