Oatmeal #56: Thicker Muesli! June 30, 2008

On Saturday night, when I was preparing the muesli for Sunday morning, I decided to reduce the amount of water I put in my muesli in an attempt to reduce their wateriness:

Evidently, I was successful πŸ˜€ And check out the awesome quality of these pictures! I was so happy at the way they came out:


Check out the texture!

Consists of:

  • oats, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, milk, yogurt
  • 0.25 cup water
  • 1 kiwi
  • 3 tbsp goji berries
  • 2 tbsp raisins

With a cup of green tea

Taste-wise–too much goji berries and raisins! Am going to reduce the amount I put in by half next time ’cause they completely took over my oatmeal! But anyway, I like this thicker consistency so much better ’cause the chewy factor totally skyrockets! And not to mention the fact that it’s easier to carry around πŸ˜›

For dinner–an awesome bowl of pasta with Tomato & Bail sauce!

And this time I had raw orange peppers, because I felt like cooking them would be a waste–why mess with a good thing?

Wow, that IS a thicker bowl of muesli!

I agree – raw peppers are wonderful. No need to cook them (although roasted peppers ARE quite delicious).

Wow, the pics are looking GREAT. What exactly did you change about the lighting, did you just take your pictures in a different location with better lighting or what? It’s a noticeable difference anyway!
And that muesli sure looks delicious and loaded with great things. NEVER too many raisins! Haha

the greenish tint to those oats from the kiwi is awesome – its so pretty haha, and just an added benefit that it tastes good!

The pictures look really good now! That bowl of muesli definitely looks thicker – did it hold you over better?

I like a thicker consistency. It’s somehow more satisfying!

Kiwi in muesli?? Very innovative. I love the idea. I used to eat muesli all the time for breakfast. Maybe it’s time I started agian.

Kristie – Took the pictures with a MUCH better lighting–and made a huge difference!

Jenn – I didn’t really notice any difference, but then again, I wasn’t paying much attention either πŸ˜› I actually thought they wouldn’t hold me over as much since there’s less moisture, but it was about the same!

Every Gym’s Nightmare – you totally should! It’s like eating ice cream in the morning πŸ˜€
