AD. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We all know it is true. However, life doesn’t always go to plan. Some days I don’t feel hungry. Some days I’m lazy. There are days when I just get caught up in working, getting Daisy ready for the day and life. I’m working on changing this. Any day where I eat breakfast is a good day. I feel motivated. I don’t graze on rubbish. Best of all my day overall seems to go better. Being organised makes me feel good and knowing that I can have a healthy, tasty, breakfast in a matter of minutes is really important to me. Today I want to talk to you about my new favourite breakfast – DIY Bircher Muesli. This is a great alternative to overnight oats as it takes just minutes!

Moma DIY Bircher Muesli

Firstly I start with Moma Bircher Muesli. This was sent to me by the lovely folks at Moma Foods. Moma Foods pride themselves on being able to take oats and make them taste so much better – and they are not wrong! I have tried several products in their range now and this bircher muesli is really nice.

For my breakfast in the mornings I have been following the method as advertised here:

This method is ideal for me as I tend to be short on time. Maybe I’m not short on time really, I’m just short on motivation. Anyway, this takes just 1 minute to prepare and then it is ready in 5 minutes. In this time I have been able to prepare breakfast for my daughter Daisy and tidy the kitchen. I can even jump in the shower while this DIY bircher muesli is soaking. This is a lot at it soaking:

Tasty and suitable for our whole family

Another benefit of this lovely muesli is that it is dairy free! This means that with the addition of a coconut yoghurt and a splash of apple juice my lovely daughter and I can enjoy breakfast together. Having a daughter with allergies can be a pain sometimes but this is great for us. Being able to have the same breakfast, made the same way, is fantastic. Daisy really enjoyed sampling this recently and the oats are great for keeping her full. As we are cutting back on the amounts of formula that Daisy drinks now this is ideal. I can get goodness into her and best of all it doesn’t take long at all!

The flavours of this raspberry and coconut Moma Foods Bircher Muesli are delicious. With raisins, apple, seeds, coconut flakes and raspberry pieces this has so much flavour to it. By using a flavoured yoghurt and apple juice this brings extra sweetness. Daisy has been enjoying strawberry Koko yoghurts with her DIY bircher muesli. Personally I’ve loved a nice addition of vanilla dairy yoghurts with my breakfast. This is a great alternative to overnight oats – mostly because it is so much faster. I’ve already got lots to remember each night before I can get in to bed.

As you can see Daisy really enjoyed her alternative to overnight oats. It was fast enough to make that she didn’t cry while waiting. It is healthy, full of flavour and pretty cheap too!

Has eating breakfast helped me?

Since making a conscious effort to eat breakfast every day I have felt better in myself. First I stay the day off on a healthy foot. Then there is the boost that the energy gives me. This DIY Bircher Muesli helps me have a great alternative to overnight oats. It is fast, tasty, filling and pretty cheap too! Eating a quality breakfast gets me off to a great start for my day. I feel like I am ready for anything. Whether that is just juggling working with having my 10 month old at home, or something else, I’m ready!

    I’ve never been a fan of this kind of thing but I know Ed likes it so may have to pick some up! Looks like it would be good to help start the day off right! Need to think about what Benjamin can eat when he’s weaned too as doing baby led weaning ? X

      We do baby led weaning too – I let my daughter eat whatever we eat (subject to allergies) and she makes a right old mess. It is all part of learning isn’t it! x

      I’ve been making a conscious effort lately and this is surprisingly nice – even for a non oat fan (I doubt flapjacks count?)

    I am rubbish with breakfast – always have been! Love how convenient this sounds!

      It is super fast and I’ve been noticing a big difference too!
