You’ve heard it before, and you’ll hear it again. Breakfast is kind of a big deal.
Studies show that eating breakfast can reap enormous benefits, like helping improve cognitive function, boosting your heart health, decreasing your risk for heart disease, and even boosting energy levels.
What Is Muesli, Anyway?
Muesli (pronounced Mews-li) is a fiber- and protein-rich breakfast and brunch option based on raw, rolled oats and other diverse breakfast ingredients.
What began as a dry cereal made from toasted whole oats, nuts, fruit, and wheat flakes, muesli has evolved to become a hodgepodge of a breakfast option with tons of combinations that can be soaked and essentially marinated overnight. Think grains, fresh or dried fruits, seeds, and nuts. The concoction, which is full of vitamins, iron, and magnesium, can also be mixed together with milk (soy, almond, or cow), or yogurt or fruit juice, and left in the fridge overnight.
Muesli is indeed healthier than your sugary cereals and will keep you feeling full for longer!! #muesli#mueslibowl#fitgirls#fitnessjunkie#healthyfood#healthymind#healthystart#breakfast#breakfastclub#startyourdayright#eatclean#eatcleantrainmean#newweek#newgoals

Happy Monday! Let's talk macros, because I get a tonne of questions about this.
Macros is short for macronutrients and consists of three key food groups we require to function- carbohydrates, fats and protein. Everyone's body requires a different balance of foods to work efficiently and meet their goals. Calorie counting works for some but you risk eating the wrong balance of macronutrients. 10 grams of fat is used differently within your body to 10 grams of protein for example.
I use the IIFYM calculator to get rough guidelines for my weight/height/activity levels and my goal- whether I'm bulking or cutting and make small adjustments from there to suit. I then track my macros using Myfitnesspal.
Tracking macros has helped me make conscious food choices and ensure that my cheat meals are still within reason and not going to mess up my goals.
