What's great about it
I find nothing more rewarding than making my own muesli. And with the weather warming up, this delicious raw muesli is ideal for those sunny mornings when I crave a lighter breakfast. It's ready in minutes, and with just four simple ingredients, is a perfect quick and healthy start to my busy day. Look for organic apples without pesticides. Almonds are packed full of protein and heart healthy fats that are kind to your arteries, help lower cholesterol and keep blood sugars stable and also are rich in Vitamin E, the most important antioxidant for the skin protecting skin agains ageing.
