WIAW #71

Posted Jan 02 2013 6:00am
It's the first WIAW of 2013!

Peas and Crayons

Some things don't change - Chobani and random cereal and fruit and dried fruitbowls still hold a (daily) place in my heart (and stomach)

And I still like topping cereal up as I go :)

I'm also still addicted to roasted kabocha, bars, and nut butters and pastes.

After several days of really indulgent meals and not much green stuff at all, sometimes nothing hits the spot better than crisp cucumber.

Today's awesome breakfast option is Seven Sundays All-Natural Gourmet Muesli .

Hannah and Brady, the founders of Seven Sundays , were inspired by the active, sustainable lifestyles of the Kiwi during a vacation to New Zealand. Muesli is a popular breakfast in New Zealand, so the breakfast-loving couple decided to give US breakfasts a facelift by making their own hearty, gourmet muesli.

They base the mueslis off of their favorite combinations from New Zealand, but always add their own twist. They focus on simple, whole ingredients to make mueslis that are real breakfast superstars.

There are 6g of dietary fiber in one half cup serving of muesli. That's twenty-four percent of the RDI and the equivalent of approximately 3 slices of whole wheat bread!

Unsurprisingly, a bowl kept me satisfied for several hours, all the way through to lunch. I'm ordinarily a mid-morning snacker (I have a pretty voracious appetite) but on my Seven Sundays mornings I didn't even think about food again until around 11:30 or noon.

But this definitely isn't choking down an icky breakfast to try to be healthy.

Original Muesli
A lot of the time granolas or cereals with nuts and fruits have just a few nuts and fruits - just enough so that they can claim that they're a 'raisin walnut' granola or whatever. These mueslis were quite the opposite, the mix-ins were super abundant!

The dried fruits are sweet and delicious, the nuts and seeds are crunchy and satisfying. I'd take these chewy cherries and crunchy banana chips over leprechaun shaped marshmallows any day!

Vanilla Cherry Pecan Muesli
The flavors are interesting (in a good way) and I really enjoy the combinations they come up with. The original and the unsweetened, un-toasted Bircher muesli (it's not as crunchy, so it's a good option if you're not yet used to having to properly chew your breakfast) are delicious with their trail mix of mix-in.

I really enjoyed the big brazil nuts in the Original muesli.

Original Muesli with 2% milk
The vanilla cherry pecan really strikes a wonderful balance between the three featured flavors and the ginger pear macadamia muesli is super unusual and super delicious! The chewy dried pears, the soft buttery macadamia nuts, and the ginger flavor that permeates the blend combined for an exotic, scrumptious treat!

Ginger Pear Macadamia Muesli
 I've always loved the mueslis in Germany, but these are just as good (possibly even better)!

Original Muesli with 2% milk

Their muesli is a delicious, nutritious way to add breakfast to your regular routine!

Even if you already eat breakfast regularly, but your breakfasts aren't quite as nutritious (ie: Pop Tarts or Apple Jacks) I'd recommend trying these mueslis at least a few days a week. I bet your energy levels will rise!

What's your favorite breakfast?

Do you eat breakfast every day?

Have you made any resolutions this year?
