Muesli with Kefir and Fruit

I’ve been a bit crunched for time lately, and thankfully a bowl of Müesli, Kefir, and Fruit takes only about 3 minutes to put together — though I like to let it sit for about 10 minutes to soften.  In the morning I’ll mix up a bowl, take a shower while it sits, and then chow down after I get dressed.

This is a great way to kick-start your day with fiber, protein, vitamins, and a bit of natural sugar.  Easy and delicious — two of my favorite words!

We’ve been buying Familia Swiss Müesli Cereal with No Added Sugar, but Bob’s Red Mill also makes a nice one (that’s also great as a hot cereal).

If you don’t know much about Müesli, Wikipedia has a good overview.

If you don’t know much about Kefir, here’s the quick description:  It’s like drinkable yogurt.  It’s perfect to add to the Müesli, since the oats are uncooked and tend to absorb a lot of moisture.  If you use regular yogurt, simply thin it with milk until you reach the desired consistency.
