Breakfast has been a slow progression for me. I used to belong to the camp that was anti-breakfast. I also used to smoke and drink energy drinks. Let’s say that change can be a good thing from time to time. This is one of those “good changes.” I slowly started adding a piece of fruit in the morning. Then I would bring an energy bar if I was planning an early exercise. I progressed to eating a bowl of cereal on days off where I had the extra time to relax and let the food digest before I started getting active. You get the picture.
Change doesn’t happen overnight. Now I absolutely cannot function without breakfast! It is my largest meal of the day. My digestion has adjusted and I couldn’t think of starting my day without it. Even on early shows with a 3 hour time zone change eastbound doesn’t change my morning ritual.
With this progression, I have had the chance to try every option under the sun and have found a pretty good formula of what works on the road. The “Magic Muesli” recipe I have grown to depend on is a great mix of whole grains and plant-based healthy fats/omega 3 EFAs, with a delicious balance of naturally sweetening fruit to round out the satisfaction! Check the recipe here.
What follows is a video explaining the basics of what the ingredients are and why we use them, and how it all comes together. I prefer this over boxed cereal and other options for its great list of ingredients, taste, and durability. It takes up a very small amount of space and is very versatile. This contains no artificial ingredients, additives, or sugars.
