One of my go-to breakfast ideas for when I’m clean eating is a ‘bircher muesli’. Normally bircher muesli is made up of muesli, soaked in orange juice overnight, then mixed with some fruit, coulis and yogurt. To make this recipe a bit cleaner I use the below recipe
Amelia’s Clean Eating Bircher Mix
I make a bit bowl of the below mix:
- Quick Cooking Oats
- 250g sultanas
- 250g dried cranberries
- 100g mixed seeds (pumpkin and sunflower)
For breakfast I place 2/3 cup of the above mix into a bowl and add enough water to coat. Cover the bowl and place into the fridge. You can either do this first thing in the morning, or the night before.
When you are ready to eat, add 2 tablespoons of low-fat natural Greek yogurt to the box and mix together. You can also add a grated apple, or 1/4 cup berries if you want.
The taste may not be as sweet as normal bircher muesli – we are supposed to be removing sugar from the diet when eating clean after all – but the sultanas and cranberries add enough natural sweetness and you eventually adapt to it.
