A Contemporary Take on Muesli

'Tis the season for New Year’s resolutions - and high on the resolution list for most of us is exercising and eating better.  So here’s a contemporary take on muesli that may help you keep up with your resolution to eat better.

This alpine cereal seems like the right choice at the breakfast buffet but often disappoints.  This version is a combination of ripe cantaloupe, fresh or frozen peaches, thinly sliced celery, crumbled feta cheese, a dusting of shredded wheat, and the juice of half a lemon.

The vibrant colors will get you moving in the morning faster than the strongest cuppa joe.  The combination of sweetness from the fruit, crunch from the celery, and tanginess from the cheese will awaken more than just your taste buds.

The magic of this muesli is the transformation of some pretty ordinary “good-for-you” foods like celery and shredded wheat into an artful dish that punches above its weight on the basis of nutrition, flavor, freshness, and taste.  Calorie for calorie, this one’s an A plus.

Side note - throw in some chopped chili peppers or jalapenos with some fresh ground pepper and you’ve got yourself the perfect side dish for fish, pork, or chicken!
