Healthy Breakfast Ideas

When it comes to healthy breakfast ideas, sometimes the healthiest option is to make your own. This recipe for delicious homemade muesli has buckwheat in it.

Gluten free diet alert: buckwheat has absolutely nothing to do with “wheat”! In fact these two plants are not even remotely similar! Buckwheat, like Quinoa, is a “seed” (actually the seed of the buckwheat flower), as opposed to being a grain, but can be eaten in the same way as other cereal grains. It is a wonderful nutrient-rich food that is so simple to use. It is mineral-rich, gluten-free, and is also high in antioxidant “flavonoids” – particularly rutin, known for its health-enhancing qualities, and its benefits to skin health. This is a delicious, fruity, energy-rich, healthy breakfast.

Healthy breakfast ingredients: what you’ll need

  • 100g buckwheat groats soaked overnight
  • 30g almonds (soaked overnight)
