Doesn’t this breakfast look so full of vitality? I totally love this muesli recipe, which is why I’m sharing it with you today. Sharing the love 🙂
Last weekend we dropped our motorhome at Antwerp’s massive industrial port, ready to be shipped to Canada. She looked rather lonely and forlorn in the waiting lot, and it felt quite strange leaving her after all the love and time we’ve put into her. It felt exciting and liberating too, because it’s one massive step closer to living our dream.
Now it’s time to pack up the house ready for rental, wrap up work and finish all the last bits of shopping and logistics for our trip. This Saturday I’m doing a garage sale, which I’m really looking forward to 🙂
I have such a jumble of mixed feelings: excitement, a head full of to-dos, trepidation, curiosity, courage, fear. You name it, it’s there!
I imagine that a lot of people think it would all be positive and exciting, to do such a grand adventure, but it really challenges my sense of safety and place in the world. I hadn’t quite realised how much of my sense of identity was attached to my home, family, friends, work, the things I surround myself with, the little rituals and life habits I have.
I love that stepping outside of cultural norms stretches me so much emotionally. I’m beginning to feel like it’s a life mission: to keep doing things I didn’t think would be possible. It gives me so much courage, for life in general. And, of course, amazing new experiences. I feel like I’m living ‘Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway’. Let’s see what this life experiment brings!
Vitality Boost Muesli – The Recipe
This is my personal favourite raw muesli. It’s such a great way to start the day and really easy to make.
- 1 handful pumpkin seeds, soaked overnight
- 1 handful sunflower seeds, soaked overnight
- 1 handful goji berries, in a separate bowl, soaked overnight in ½ cup of water
- 1 handful hulled hemp seeds
- 1cm of fresh ginger, grated
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1 handful of berries (optional)
- 1 teaspoon of bee pollen (optional)
- fresh nut/seed milk (click here for a younger version of me showing you how to make it 🙂 )
Rinse and drain your seeds and mix thoroughly with all the other ingredients. Pour over your nut/seed milk and serve.
