Bellachino Soft-baked Low GI Muesli

by | Feb 25, 2021 | Blog | 0 comments

Foodies, the one and only “Soft-Baked-Low-GI-IBS-Friendly-Vegan-Snoopy-will-dig-it- Muesli” greets you! This softer version is much better for sensitive tummies, FODMAP Diet Friendly, low in Sodium, low GI, low in Sugar, contain Turmeric and Cinnamon, natural Anti-inflammatory Agents our bodies need to combat acidity and harmful free radicals. The coconut components attack bad LDL cholesterol in our bodies, and all round, this version contains extraordinarily little (to no) Gluten.

Enjoy a portion size (1/4c) with 3 Tbsp of Coconut, Almond or Rice Milk, normal Cow’s Milk (or Lactose Free), with Double Cream or Full Fat Greek Yogi (for all those “Fat-Insoluble Vitamins” A,D,E,K, Calcium to be absorbed) or eat a hand full as the perfect on-the-go-snack. Just to mention, Greek Yogurt contains almost no Lactose due to the straining technique during production that gives this yoghurt its unique thick texture!
You may add dried blueberries or cranberries, dates, or other fruit. This is a “Base Muesli” – add this to Smoothies or prepare Protein Snacks using this Muesli – healthy, tummy soft and blood sugar stabling! If you need it sweeter, add more honey. If you need it crispier, bake it 15 minutes more. I eat this boy with fruit, which, in turn, sweetens the cereal to the point where it is just perrrfect…..
