If your like me and give the snooze button a workout before rolling out of bed in the morning, then listen up. There is a way to enjoy a delicious breakfast in the morning, without having to do ANYTHING. And by anything, I mean anything in the morning…. By putting away 5 minutes of your time the night before, whether it be between TV commercial breaks, facebook profile creeps, or ab crunches it will be well worth it come morning time.
“Grapes of all colors – red, black and green – are a natural source of beneficial antioxidants and otherpolyphenols. One serving of grapes contains only 90 calories and is a good source of potassium and vitamin K.”
Muesli is my usual go to in the morning, see recipe for Toasted Muesli with Nuts, Seeds and Dates, though Bircher muesli is great to keep things interesting. To make Bircher muesli you could use any muesli and soak it in yoghurt and milk/milk alternative overnight, but sometimes…. the muesli runs out. So grab your oats and get making.

Method for Breakfast Bircher Muesli with Cinnamon, Honey and Grapes
Combine all ingredients except for the grapes into your favourite breakfast bowl. You want the mixture to be slightly runny, not too thick.
Cover and let sit in your fridge overnight.
I like to top mine with grape halves. They are especially great this time of year and add a nice freshness to the dish. When grapes aren’t in season, a sliced half a banana would do the trick.
