I'm looking for a good breakfast cereal - muesli recipe.
Can you please help me?

You can sprout grains, dehydrate them and then mix with dry fruit and serve with nut milk...
There is a great recipe in Alissa's book, and I have read that a lot of people will have buckwheat sprouts for cereal...
Me, I am partial to fruit and puddings for breakfast. I like ground nuts and berries or mango with bananas the best!

1 cup hulled whole oats, soaked and sprouted (or rolled oats, soaked)
1 apple, grated
1 banana, sliced
1/4 cup raisins, soaked
1/4 cup almonds, soaked
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, soaked
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 orange, juiced
1 tbsp. lemon peel, grated (make sure you're using undyed lemons - organic is best)
1) If you use whole (hulled) oats, soak 15-20 hours (change the soak water once), then sprout for one day. I prefer these because they are more natural. If you use rolled oats, soak overnight (or at least 1 hour). Soak in filtered water, just to cover, and the oats will absorb the water. (Rolled oats have been through two heat processes; first they are steamed and then they are flattened by rollers. The rollers build up heat in the process.)
2) Soak raisins, almonds and sunflower seeds overnight in separate little bowls, using filtered water, just enough to cover.
3) In the morning, drain the water out of the almonds and sunflower seeds, and rinse. Chop the almonds a little. The water you drain from the raisins can be used for drinking or in other recipes.
4) Mix the oats, apple, banana, raisins, almonds and sunflower seeds in a bowl. Pour in the lemon and orange juices, add grated lemon rind and mix well.
Serves 2 or 3 . . . or 1 hungry person!
VARIATION: Instead of the apples and citrus, use papaya or mango and fresh pineapple juice.
Oat Groats (soaked overnight)
Cashews, Pecans, Almonds, Walnuts (soaked and dehydrated)
Sunflower Seeds (soaked and dehydrated)
Honey or Date paste (date paste is just dates processed with water)
Combine everything in bowl. Mix well. Spread on teflex sheet and dehydrate at 105 degrees til crunchy (takes quite a while).
Enjoy by itself or add raisins and almond milk for a yummy cereal!
i haven't tried these (as i haven't started my diet yet), but i've collected some cool recipes that sound really good. if you want more breakfast recipes let me know and i'll post them. Rachel

I'll try these recipes soon.
Rachel if it's not a problem for you, I'd like to receive more recipes, thank you

Not a problem at all!!!
FLAX SEED CEREAL
- Grind 1/4-1/2 cup flax seeds in a coffee grinder.
- Add to that seasonings such as cinnamon and nutmeg and some stevia.
- Then add 2-4 tablespoons coconut fat. (I melt it on the stove at low temp to ease mixing).
It tastes great, has all the right fats, none of the wrong. And provides the cleansing fibers in the flax seeds. And it will give you balanced and sustained blood sugars for many hours.
Sprouted quinoa blended with some nuts and sweetener.
Easy Breakfast Spread
Ingredients (use vegan versions):
2 cups crushed pineapple
1 cup cooked millet
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoon orange juice from concentrate
Powdered nuts or almonds.
Blenderize all ingredients till smooth, adding a little more juice if necessary. Now to form your sandwiches, you spread this mixture evenly on sprouted bread of your preference, sprinkle evenly with powdered nuts, cover with another slice of bread and enjoy it!
Makes 2 large bowls or 4 smaller servings
2 cups water
1 cup quinoa flakes
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
drops stevia liquid concentrate to your liking
1 Tbs. coconut oil
2 tsp. vanilla flavoring
1 tsp. flax seed oil (optional but very healthy)
HEARTY BUCKWHEAT PORRIDGE
1/4-1/2 cup hulled raw buckwheat (see Glossary)
10-15 almonds, soaked overnight
1/4 cup raisins or currants, soaked overnight
1 banana (or 1/2 ripe plantain)
1 small mango (or other fruit, like papaya)
1/2 cup filtered water
additional filtered water for soaking
1) At night, soak 1/4 to 1/2 cup buckwheat in one cup of filtered water. Also soak almonds and raisins separately, using just enough water to cover.
2) In the morning, strain and rinse the buckwheat well. It will release a mucilaginous liquid, but keep rinsing until the water is clear. Drain and rinse the almonds. Strain the raisins through a colander, reserving the raisin water.
3) Heat up 1/2 cup filtered water on the stove only to the point where you can still put your finger in, and then turn off the flame. Pour the hot filtered water into the blender, add in the rest of the ingredients and blend to a cream. Thin out with some of the raisin soak water, if necessary.
This recipe can also be made with hulled, sprouted buckwheat because sprouting increases the nutrient content.
Use sprouted quinoa or amaranth instead of buckwheat.
1/2 cantaloupe,* honeydew, Persian, muskmelon, cranshaw or any other melon (or a combination)
1-2 tsp. raw honey (optional)
1) Cut the melon into chunks and put into the blender with honey (not necessary if melon is sweet) and a couple of ice cubes. Blend to a frapp.
Serves 1 or 2.
*Try to peel the cantaloupe very close to the skin. There is a green chlorophyll layer just under the skin of most cantaloupes and some other melons. Take advantage of this by including it for optimum nutrition.
1 ripe pear
1 cup soaked walnuts (soaked in water at least 6 hours, then drained)
1 cup pine nuts
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Place the pear, walnuts, pine nuts, maple syrup, water, cinnamon and vanilla in a food processor or food mixer and blend to make a completely smooth batter. Pour silver-dollar-sized rounds out onto solid dehydrator sheets. Dehydrate 6 hours. Flip, then dehydrate another 6 hours. Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit. Makes about 12 pancakes.
apple of your choice grated
1 banana chopped
small handful coconut shredded
1/4 cup soaked almonds chopped
1/4 cup sunflower sprouts
splash of almond milk or coconut water
1 tsp raw honey
dash of cinnamon or nutmeg (we even like pumpkin pie spice)
Mix in a large bowl. Eat...This is great comfort food!!!
BLUEBERRIES N CREAM
1/2 c pine nuts, soaked 6 hours
1/2 c water
1 T maple syrup
3 pints blueberries
Blend nuts, water & maple syrup at high for 2 minutes. Pour over individual servings of fresh berries.
I got these from various sites and i just chose the ones i thought sounded more appealing to me. if you to alissa's website she has a lot of links you can go to. check it out! Rachel

I'M DYING to try them myself. all in good time when i get the necessary equipment to even start! lol I should make a few points though. :rolleyes: some of these recipes i got from vegan sites and i wanted to just substitute raw things where it says cook this or cook that, etc. Instead of cooking the grains-sprout them, etc. Ok bye!

I havent read through all the posts so I hope I'm not repeating here, but this is what I made up this morning.
I juice an apple and pour the juice over rolled oats. Then I add raisins, grapes, blueberries and strawberries and eat it like moist muesli. It's quite good.

I keep a container of soaked (overnight) oat groats in the fridge. I like them as is, with a little bit of agave, chopped nuts and fruit. They are also tasty when you put them in the food processor with a bit of agave and water and blended until only slightly chunky. Then thin it with almond milk, add raisins and presto, you have oatmeal!
