You can pretty much guess what I will bring home each week from the grocery store: bread, peanut butter, bananas, milk, blueberries, asparagus and the list goes on. One item that varies from week to week is my breakfast. I absolutely love oatmeal, but while a steaming hot bowl of oatmeal is delicious on a cold winter morning, it’s not something you wake up wanting in the hot summer. So during the summer I stick to cereal with cold milk.
When picking out which cereal I want each week, I start at the beginning of the aisle and look for a cereal that looks good to me. Knowing the NuVal scores range from 2 to 91, I know I will not find anything higher than a 91. I try to find a cereal with a high score that I know I will enjoy. I have come home a few times with the Post Shredded Wheat, which scores a 91. This week when searching for cereal, I came across all these delicious ingredients and a high NuVal score in a cereal called muesli. You don’t have to ask me twice – it’s going in my shopping cart.
Each morning I pour a small bowl of muesli and add a little milk. I let the muesli soak up the milk for a few minutes while I’m getting my coffee ready and then I dig in. Muesli can be served with milk or juice or can be used as a topping for yogurt. If you like granola you will like muesli.
