Depending on each person’s constitution or imbalance, Ayurveda recommends it in different ways. Having said that, the following HOMEMADE MUESLI is very well balanced and it’ll be easy to digest if taken in moderation. It only takes 10 minutes to prepare and can be stored in a jar for at least 3 weeks (We eat it all before that though).
300g instant oats
a cup nuts
½ cup seeds
Grated coconut to taste
Ground spices like cardamom, cinnamon, clove and/or star anise to taste *If you are not used to spices, start having a little amount and if possible try the spice alone to feel its uniqueness.
½ cup raisins
In a pan, DRY ROAST the oats together with the rest of the ingredients except the raisins. They are added at the end otherwise they will swell up. Stir continuously to avoid burning it. I took a photo before & after dry roasting, hope you appreciate the difference. Also the aroma of the dry roasting is wonderful.
When you are ready to have breakfast. Add:
Coconut or almond milk *I prefer unsweetened almond milk
Good quality honey or maple syrup to taste
Fruit * I always choose berries as sour is not my favourite taste but needs to be present in each meal.
VERY IMPORTANT: please AVOID cow’s milk. In Ayurveda, cow’s milk is drunk warm, with spices and never ever with fruit.
