Gluten Free Muesli
In the morning, muesli wakes the body up quickly, filling you up with carbohydrates and providing energy for the whole day. For those of us who cannot eat wheat and similar foods, there are plenty of alternative and delicious gluten free options for a healthy breakfast.
Whether eating with milk or yoghurt, a gluten free breakfast of fruit and nuts is a tasty start to your day, which also provides you with energy. Muesli not only fills you up for a long time and keeps your glucose levels consistent, but it also offers an ideal combination of easily digested proteins and plenty of vitamins, minerals and trace elements as well as fibres, important for digestion.
The basis: Gluten free cereals
The basis of muesli is a cereal mixture, which you can either purchase directly from a store or mix by yourself. Gluten free cereals, as flakes or puffed, provide the body with many important nutrients:
- Amaranth: essential fatty acids, such as Alpha-Linolenic Acid
- Soya flakes: low-carb and very high in proteins
- Buckwheat flakes: rich in minerals such as magnesium, iron and zinc
- Rice-Corn Flakes: rich in fibres and B-Vitamins
- Gluten free Corn Flakes: almost fat free and low-calorie
Tips for a plus in fibre
Our particular high-fibre products without gluten – not only for a healthy breakfast – carry the green ribbon and a note “+ Fibre“.
More taste: Seeds, Nuts and Fruits
Seeds and nuts provide the body with a lot of unsaturated fatty acids, minerals (such as magnesium, calcium and copper) as well as the B and E vitamins. There are lots to choose from: linseeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, cashew nuts and walnuts.
You can create a wide variety of different flavours if you combine these with fresh, seasonal fruits.
A healthy advantage: Fruit and berries contain lots of vitamins and minerals, as well as secondary plant compounds with an antibacterial effect.
Even dried fruits taste excellent with gluten free muesli. Further, they are a good source of potassium and rich in fibres. If you suffer from coeliac disease, please make sure you do not use any floured dried fruits.
On top: Milk & Yoghurt
Gluten free muesli tastes great with milk, yoghurt or curd. Even if you have a lactose intolerance, you can use lactose-free products or go back to plant-based alternatives made from soya, rice or almonds.
The good thing with muesli is: You can vary the ingredients again and again (like adding cinnamon or vanilla to try new flavours). For those who like it warm, cereals can be prepared as a filling porridge with fresh fruit incorporated.
