Swiss Health Breakfast

Meal.Mates's picture
  Fresh wheatgerm 1 Tablespoon
  Whole oats 1 Tablespoon
  Water 5 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 1 Teaspoon
  Honey 2 Teaspoon (Or To Taste)
  Cream/Milk 2 Tablespoon
  Apple 1 (Unpeeled)
  Chopped nuts 2 Tablespoon (If Desired)

Soak the wheatgerm and whole oats in the water overnight in the refrigerator. Next morning add the lemon juice in honey and cream or milk, and mix well. Shred the unpeeled apple into this and serve at once. Scatter a handful of chopped nuts on top if you like — it makes the cereal more nutritious. Serves 1. There are as many variations of the swiss health breakfast as there are fruits on the market. Fresh grapes, peaches, bananas, or any other favorite fruit can be mashed or shredded into the cereal.
A variation of the original muesli. It is a good idea to store wheatgerm in the freezer, as this is one food that quickly goes rancid. It is easy to take out enough for each day as you need it.
