Berry Delicious
Breakfast Muesli
No Fat
No Sugar
Lots of Fiber
This muesli is so easy! 
Make it the night before and you can eat it on the run!
Full of fresh fruit flavours
You can make it with whatever suits your fancy.
This is even great for the kids snack or break time at work!
Best of all it's guilt free!
When oatmeal is cooked it's digestive fibers are broken down by the heating process, so when you eat it, there is less bulk to keep you feeling full longer.
This method has no cooking involved so the fiber stays raw.
You break it down with your teeth and it takes longer to digest keeping you feeling full longer.
Uhum! Let me repeat with no fats!
I have sweetened mine with Stevia a cactus plant derivative, which does not spike your blood sugar level and is actually good for you.
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 cup milk or non dairy beverage
1/2 cup total mixed berries, almonds, dates, raisins, cranberries, grapes, etc.
1 tbsp chia seeds (omega 3's and fiber)
1 tsp stevia or honey

experiment  try a spoon of  peanut or almond butter, bran, or use yogourt instead of milk!
Place oats and milk in a nonreactive container and refrigerate overnight.
When ready to eat add any mixture of toppings to your taste. Stir and enjoy!
If you're in a super hurry in the morning: you can mix the fruit in the night before and it will just macerate and sweeten the whole mixture!
You'll be tempted to make extra for everyone on the go.
