The muesli for this recipe is soaked in almond milk, and I topped it with lots of fresh berries like raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and a few slices of banana. I love some crunch, so I also added almonds, pecans, pepitas, and dried coconut flakes. There will be no leftovers of this tasty muesli breakfast bowl!
I’ve been a consistent oatmeal consumer for years and have even added it to my morning smoothie when I’m in a hurry. However, after recently trying my first bowl of muesli ut immediately went into my morning mix!
Are there any health benefits of soaking the grains in the muesli before eating?
When you soak the grains in cold liquid before eating the muesli, some amazing things happen. Soaking the grains allow the organisms and enzymes to break down within the grain, and the phytic acid begins to neutralize. Why is this important? The phytic acid is present in the hulls of grains, as well as nuts and seeds and difficult for your body to digest. This allows your body to absorb minerals like calcium, iron, and zinc more readily, yay! If you want to give your digestive system a little help and unlock the nutrition in your food, this is a great simple step to boost your meal. (Source: Seven Sundays)
