Breakfast Suggestion: HoMeMaDe MuEsLi

This is great for those that are in a rush in the morning and never have time to dedicate to making their breakfast. I for one, feel your pain. I would rather choose those extra few minutes in bed in the morning (especially those cold ones!) than making a decent breakfast!

But I love this recipe! Quick, easy, handy, nutritious and prevents those, like me, from skipping the most important meal of the day, BREAKFAST!

Make the night before to avoid missing those extra minutes in bed or simply for an on-the-move breakfast or lunch that you can grab in the morning and bring with you.

☑350g jumbo oats
☑200g mixed nuts
☑50g of each sunflower & pumpkin seeds
☑100g dried apricot

NOTE: Change up the nuts and dried fruit mixes to match your own taste.

Veggie Patch

Found my first green bean today from my veggie patch!! 😊

Started growing a few of my own vegetables last month, nice to see how they are growing like crazy! Had to plant 6ft bamboos for these they are growing that quick!

Hopefully will have many more soon!
