For many years now I have always started my day with a bowl of muesli. For me there is no better weekday breakfast than a bowl of fruit, topped with yoghurt and muesli. However when I first came to Korea, finding a good and nutritious breakfast was rather difficult. All the cereal that you could buy easily was full of sugar, and muesli was very hard to find. Times have changed since then and muesli is more widely available, you can buy the Tesco brand at Homeplus and they even have Dorset Cereal at the Foreign Food Mart in Itaewon. However I started making my own a while back now and haven’t looked back since. As well as being much healthier, it’s cheaper and tastier too. Not just a bag of oats with a few raisins thrown in for good measure.
300g of oats
100g of bran/wheat flakes (i-Herb / High Street market)
100g of pumpkin seeds
100g of raisins
100g of sliced almonds
75g of other mixed nuts (optional)
75g of prunes
75g of dried apricots
Chop up the prunes and apricots into small pieces. Then measure out all of your other ingredients and mix together in a large bowl. Store in an air tight container. Serve on top or fruit and yoghurt or just with milk. Voilà an easy, healthy, and cheap breakfast.
