Fresh Fruit Muesli - A 5 Minute Breakfast

There are two infact three things which lead to this breakfast. Although its such an easy one and most of you must be already making this. Still I wanted to add it on my food blog for its simple nature. The first thing that led to this was a morning email from Food Bloggers Unite on How A Single Post Drew Over 20,000 Hits In One Day? The post was How To Make Butter In Under 5 Minutes ? I must say reading it was such an enlightening experience. Second thing was I needed to submit my favorite breakfast recipe for WYF: Breakfast Event. But being a lazy bone I wanted to make only one that could some up my both ideas.

Then late afternoon, when I was going through my daily dose of a science daily on food and nutrients, something caught my attention. A study was mentioned according to which, women who ate breakfast daily were less likely to be overweight although they took in more calories. The reason given was the whole day of work ahead which made them burn all the calories, avoided over eating and reduced snacking.

Early morning breakfast really plays a vital role in providing necessary nutrients to kick start the day. So even if you have loads of work or short of time, do not miss the breakfast. You can make some quick healthy breakfast. Fresh Fruit Muesli is just that. It can be made in less than 5 minutes and has loads of nutritional value. You can even get packaged muesli for making it, as it is easily available in the market. Its a loose mixture of rolled oats together with various pieces of dried fruit, nuts, and seeds.


Ingredients
1/2 cup quick rolled cooking oats
1/2 cup cornflakes
2 tbsp chopped mixed nuts (cashewnuts, walnuts, almonds)
1 tsp wheat bran
2 tsp chopped raisins
2 tsp castor sugar
1 cup soya milk (per person)
1 cup fresh assortment of fruits (chopped)

Method

* In a pan warm milk with sugar.
* Take a large bowl. Add all the fruits, oats, cornflakes wheat bran, nuts, raisins, fresh fruits and mix.
* Pour warm soy milk.
* Serve immediately.

Note: If you like it cold, then no need to warm the soy milk.
