Good day to all of you beautiful people. Wow I cannot believe that it has been months since I have posted a recipe. If you have been following my instagram. Reason being, I had my own surprise wedding to plan in October, followed by lots of family visits, an incredible buddy moon, lots of college work and assignments due, sadly my little blog was placed on the back burner. But the incredible year of 2017 is finished and I as I look back it has been one hell of year, find more of my thoughts written on this post.
2018 hosts new goals, new resolutions, new things for By Rosie. I am back and will be posting 3-5 new recipes a week. I am also working on a few more exciting things in the pipeline for By Rosie.
I started off the new year with a bit of a health kick and will be detoxing (due to all of the ham, cheese, wine & champers I consumed over the Christmas period!!). I am not talking extreme detoxing where you only drink green juice. Just healthy, yet satisfying choices for breakkie, lunch, dinner and snacks. I look forward to sharing with you some ideas.
Today, we have a delicious and ridiculously simple berry bircher museli, with grated apple, almond milk, cinnamon, organic museli and topped with raspberries. Raspberries are great this time of year and in season as well as cheap. I think you can buy 4 packs for about $10 at the moment, Harris Farm has this deal at the moment (winning)!
Why its good for you?
Raspberries are a good source of vitamin c to help with your immunity. They are low in kilojoules, but high in fibre (this will help with the digestion of the protein from the nuts and optional powder) and potassium (which will help with your fluid balance in the body and help maintain a steady heartbeat).
Museli ( I bought an organic one, you can make your own (my recipe will be coming soon). They are fabulous slow release energy boosters and great to kickstart your day, they contain vitamin B’s which is known to help improve your mood, anxiety and PMS. A high level of soluble dietary fibre which is great for your circulation and for digestion.
Almond milk it is also a good source of calcium (bones, skin and tissue), phosphorus (cell growth, metabolism, ATP (energy currency in cells) uses phosphorus to do their work) and magnesium (metabolism, immunity and help to regulate blood pressure and lung function).
Cinnamon has a wonderful carminative effect on the body and will also help balance blood sugars in the body.
Apples are pretty much the most perfect snack. They contain a good dose of fibre, vitamin C (in their raw state). They contain a powerful antioxidant known as quercetin that has been known to help brain cells from degeneration (according to this book). Their high amount of fibre will aid with digestion through the small and large intestine.
Enjoy this one, its under 5 minutes to make and perfect to keep hunger locked up until lunch.
