Green Muesli

To tell you the truth, the day right after I published the post about the homemade muesli in May, Karma asked for the “green muesli” I had told you about. I took photos and kept them in my “food photos archive” (which is, in a way, the waiting room for my blog). I think it is about time now to finally fulfill my promise.

This kitchen buzz will be presented by… Karma herself! This is actually to show you how easy it is to prepare. It takes about 10 minutes, altogether, to make this extremely nourishing and really delicious morning goodie. Continue reading
