Jess' favourite recipe - Bircher muesli

Eat Smart's Jess loves Bircher Muesli! It's great for breakfast for all but can also make a tasty snack for athletes needing a good source of carbohydrate and protein pre or post training.

For those that are rushed for time in the morning, get organised and prepare a batch on a Sunday night. You will have a ready to go breakfast that will keep in the fridge for the next few mornings. Get really organised and put into portion sized containers. 

Jess does a lot of work with clients and patients that need high energy and high protein diets to support them during and after cancer treatment. To make this recipe even more nutritious for those with higher requirements, add a neutral flavoured supplement powder e.g. Sustagen Hospital Neutral, Proform Neutral to the recipe.

For fussy kids, chop up various fruits finely and hide in the recipe - the kids won't know they are there!
