-cinnamon (to taste)
-natural almond flakes
You can either make it fresh each morning or mix all the ingredients together and store in an air tight container (super convenient for busy mornings!)
-Lastly pour over milk, soy milk, almond milk or your choice of liquid!!
I’ve always been interested in food. And I’ve always loved being active.
About two months ago I came across the term “clean eating” and didn’t give it much of a second though. 95% of the time I eat really well. The other 5% would consist of dinners out, the occasional junk food and the lolly/ chocolate jar at work that haunts me- let me tell you at 3pm it is hard to resist that Caramello Koala just three steps away from your desk…
Anyway. Somehow I came across clean eating about three weeks ago- only this time I noticed it. I go to the gym about 4 times a week, run at least twice and play netball and I work hard. But my figure doesn’t budge in the slightest. So after a few hours of reading, researching and looking at all the wonderfully delicious recipes online I decided to eat as cleanly as possible. And you know- it hasn’t been too hard.
I’ve just had to alter small things that I haven’t really missed. Bread was the big one for me- but I haven’t had any since and honestly I don’t miss it- the only thing I am missing is any bloating!! When I do feel like bread I have a mountain wrap instead. They may not be 100% clean but with only 4 ingredients they come fairly close!
I must admit it was hard in the mornings. In summer I always have a smoothie for breakfast- that would be easy and clean. BUT it’s the middle of winter and I’ve been wanting something more comforting…
So I looked over and over in supermarkets but everything- even the “natural” muesli was loaded with sugar, vegetable oil and things I can’t even pretend to pronounce. I headed to a health food store last week and found a variety of muesli that seemed good- but ridiculously expensive. So I set about making my own.
And it is delicious!
(I will post the recipe next!!)
So wish me luck and hope I don’t stray!
