CARE Recipe: Home-made Muesli Bowls

One morning while at a coffee shop, when I ordered one of those paper cups of muesli to which the barista just added water to, I realized my Flax Almond Fiber Mix could be used in the same way – with lower cost and even more nutrition! The fiber and balance of these bowls make them incredibly satiating and effective at keeping blood sugar regulated (equals feeling full and comfortable in-between meals!). They work great for fast breakfasts, on-the-go lunches, or dry staples for camping or keeping at your desk at work. I hope you find them as convenient as I have!

Leafy and tender veggies can be challenging to have for breakfast. The key is being prepared and having them prepped before your rushed morning routine. Even the most dedicated would struggle to clean, prep, and cook veggies within an hour of waking up. A solution? Breakfast Bakes. These versatile, nutrient-rich, and easy to balance bakes take less than 30 minutes to get in the oven, can be tailored to suit your individual taste preferences, and result in multiple made-ahead filling breakfasts (or brunch ideas or dinners or lunches –you pick!).

Here is another way that I like to use the CARE Tater Tot Hash. At least twice per month, I have an egg bake on my meal plan. Their versatility is endless. My husband is actually the one that discovered using tater tots with riced cauliflower while making brunch one weekend. He paired the hash with bell peppers and eggs. It was delicious. Here I turn it into a bake for easy make-ahead weekday breakfasts.
