My Favorite Muesli

May 11, 2017

My advice: don't ever let anyone tell you carbs are bad, or that you shouldn't have carbs.


My motto: no food is bad for you; we simply have to each find the right balance for our respective bodies, minds, social inclinations, and - perhaps most importantly of all - activity levels.



Sure, eating more carbohydrate-based energy than your body actually uses in a day will lead to weight gain (in most bodies); but that does not mean that carbohydrates are bad.  The imbalance of consumption to output is causing weight gain...and that's...that.


If you are interested in losing weight, consider the balance between what you're putting in and what you're putting out.


Muesli is an excellent food to help anyone achieve their fitness goals, whether the goal be to gain weight, to lose weight, or to maintain weight.  The desired outcome is determined by how much we eat, when we eat, and how active we are.


In lieu of getting into too much unspecified detail, check out my favorite recipe for homemade muesli.  Try it out, add your own flare, and share with us below how yours turns out!
