Overnight Muesli | 5-day overnight breakfast challenge | Vegan, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free

Day 4 of the morning passion breakfast challenge. Welcome Overnight Muesli! Swiss doctor, Maximilian Bircher-Benner invented muesli in the early 1900s  as a healthful meal for his patients. It’s like granola but isn’t cooked. It’s soaked in milk and served like a cold porridge.

I always used to eat this cold, but I’m generally a hot-food person in the morning. So, I heated it up after soaking it overnight. And now I love the hot version even more. Do what your body feels to eat it hot or cold. There’s no right way. 


Making this today made me really happy. I haven’t had chia seeds and oatmeal together since I was in Croatia. I know it’s random. But, when I was traveling I found it hard to eat healthy in the morning. I couldn’t travel with my health pantry. (I traveled with cinnamon though). And there were new pastries to try in each place! Lol


But I found these instant oat-chia packets at the market in Croatia and it kept me right on track. Just add hot water and good to go. It was a delicious combo I never tried. 


Eating this warm bowl took me straight back to mornings in Croatia. Then, I’d have enough energy to teach kids English online and start cooking meals for my crew. If I was lucky, I’d have time to jump into the Adriatic Sea. It sounds unreal now! 


If you’ve never been to Croatia, please go! (When safe) #misstravel
