Over the past decade, the breakfast market has experienced a surge in product innovations primarily driven by the convenience factor. In recent times, these innovations have focussed on finding a delicate balance between delivering nutrition with taste.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it sets the tone for our morning, provides vital nutrients, and replenishes our energy reserves after a night's rest. However, for many the meal can turn into a repetitive routine with the same breakfast foods day after day, leading to breakfast fatigue or worse skipping breakfast (the latter quite prevalent among professionals, especially women hard-pressed for time in the morning hours).
So along with nutrition, taste plays a pivotal role in the breakfast experience. A tasty breakfast is more likely to be eaten, ensuring that you receive the nourishment your body needs. Therefore, getting a breakfast bowl that offers a delightful combination of textures, flavours, and sweetness will ensure a gratifying breakfast experience.
What makes muesli a multigrain marvel?
Muesli, a multigrain breakfast cereal, has redefined breakfast by offering a multiplicity of textures and flavours. A breakfast option with protein and fibre, it is a blend of multiple grains, such as oats, wheat, rice, corn, and barley, among others. The real magic of muesli, however, lies in its inclusions like nuts, seeds, and dried fruits. While nuts like almonds and walnuts provide healthy fats and protein, dried fruits like raisins and cranberries add a touch of sweetness. Seeds such as pumpkin, chia and flaxseed bring in Omega-3 fatty acids and fibre. These inclusions not only elevate the nutritional value of your breakfast but also make it an enjoyable and tasty meal.
Besides its nutritional value, one of the most remarkable aspects of muesli is its versatility. It can be enjoyed as a combination with milk (regular or vegan), yoghurt, or curd. For those who prefer a quick and easy snacking option, muesli can even be relished as a snack during the evening or mid-morning. Furthermore, muesli can also be combined with other ingredients to add a twist to your meals.
Inclusions to elevate your breakfast game.
While traditional muesli ingredients are undoubtedly nutritious, there's room for experimentation to transform your morning routine into a decadent treat. Here are some more inclusion examples to enhance your muesli's flavours and nutritional value.
Coconut Flakes: Toasted coconut flakes add a tropical twist to your muesli, providing a hint of sweetness and a pleasant crunch. They are also a source of healthy fats and fibre.
Chocolate: For those with a sweet tooth, adding dark chocolate chips or cocoa nibs to your muesli can create a luxurious chocolaty breakfast experience. Not only does this satisfy your cravings, but dark chocolate also offers antioxidants.
Nuts: While nuts are already a common ingredient in muesli, consider using candied or honey-roasted varieties to introduce crunchy elements. Pecans, hazelnuts, and macadamia nuts are good options.
Seeds: Pumpkin seeds as is or, coated with a honey glaze, can add a crunch to your muesli. They are rich in nutrients like zinc and iron.
Ginger: Finely chopped or crystallized ginger can add a zesty and slightly spicy kick to your muesli. Ginger is renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties and potential digestive benefits.
The possibilities are endless. Mix and match ingredients and flavours to suit your taste preferences and nutritional needs to ensure your morning breakfast tastes great – and is nourishing too.
