Back To School Breakfast – Muesli

My daughter and I participated in the Elimination Diet a few years ago to better understand the journey my patients undertake while trying to uncover the root cause of their illness. Furthermore, there has been a dramatic rise in food allergies in recent years, for various reasons. Since so many people are battling food allergies it is important for me to understand how to shop, cook, substitute ingredients, feed a family, create school lunches, put together work lunches, eat out and socialize on an Elimination Diet.  Giving advice is one thing, living it is another matter altogether.

Allie and I gave up the following things when we did the Elimination Diet– gluten, dairy, soy, egg, peanuts, shellfish, corn, caffeine (coffee/green tea) and chocolate.  Other items on the elimination diet are –  white sugar, preservatives, food coloring, and artificial flavors – which we avoid regardless!

Today I am sharing a favorite recipe that we uncovered while on our journey.  It has sweetness, protein, fiber, and potent brain nutrition.  It is easily made by school-age children and as I have said before, getting kids cooking in the kitchen is the best way to tackle picky eating.

Lastly, this recipe can be used for breakfast, lunches, after-school snacks, and desserts. Let’s get to work.
