5 Minute Breakfast: Muesli

Muesli
In this day and age we are constantly running out the door when morning rolls around, not even taking enough time to grabs breakfast. We think about our time deadlines more than we think about our health sometimes. That's why this recipe is perfect for busy people. It only takes 10 minutes to make it, and you make it the night before. Then just before you rush out the door you grab some from the fridge and go.
Not only is this a quick recipe, but it is absolutely delicious. It has since been my favorite breakfast meal ever since I first tried muesli. I'm sure it will become one of your favorites as well.





Recipe: 
1 cup oats
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup soy milk (or other milk alternatives)
2 Tbsp agave nectar
pinch of salt
1-2 ounces of nuts
1/2 apple, chopped
a bunch grapes, sliced in halves
1 banana, sliced

Add all the ingredients into one bowl and mix well. Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge overnight or for a few hours until chill. Serve the next day.


Oats
Oats are a great source of nutrition and very healthy. They help to fight against diseases of the digestive system, nervous system, metabolic disorders, and disease of the arteries. It is beneficial for people with diabetes, high cholesterol, arteriosclerosis, and high blood pressure to add oats to their daily diet.
They are the most nutrient-rich of any grain. They are a great source of phosphorus, iron, vitamin B1, protein and fiber.
A regular consumption of oats in any form, helps with nervousness, fatigue, mental exhaustion, insomnia, and depression. For stressed out students, adding oats is a brilliant move.
