Description:

Oats are a staple food in my house for many reasons, and in all the variations. Although I usually prefer the nice thick rolled oats, quick oats have a firm place in my favourites too. Quick oats are where wholesome goodness and convenience meet.

Adding quick oats to baby food helps provide well balanced protein, good representation of vitamin B, and a sustainability that will help baby feel satisfied longer. Keep some handy to add a tablespoon to pureed fruit, soups and yogurt.

One of my favourite breakfasts - especially in the summer is fresh fruit *Muesli, made with - you guessed it, Quick Oats

Directions:

  1. Lightly stir to moisten completely, and let sit for 2 or 3 minutes to absorb juice.
  2. add more juice as desired to keep it the texture you desire
  3. Serve. That's it. It really IS that simple, and that quick. And that delicious.
  4. NO fat, NO sugar, NO dairy, NO wheat, NO additives of any kind Super Nutritious and Delicious
  5. Option 1: use any kind of fruit, substitute your favourites or what you have on hand
  6. Option 2: use any kind of juice or milk, substitute your favourite or what you have on hand. I prefer apple juice because is mild tasting allowing the other tastes to come through.
  7. Option 3: top it off with added nutrition in your bowl: a scoop of plain yogurt, a sprinkling of toasted nuts, or seeds: sesame / chia / hemp seeds. Be creative. Muesli is flexible.

Years ago, when my older kids were little, I discovered traditional Swiss Muesli - large flaked oats, dried fruit and topped with yogurt and toasted almonds. Delicious and Nutritious. Soon enough I realized the potential for flexibility, and muesli progressed to include whatever fruit was fresh in the summer, or whatever home-canned fruit I had on hand in the winter. Some things were constant: usually shredded apples and raisins. Some things varied - usually apple juice as the liquid, but sometimes other juice, sometimes milk. Muesli is like that. Flexible and wonderful. Muesli takes on a whole new world of possibilities with freeze dried fruits. Always 'fresh' and always at their nutritional peak, you can have any kind you want because you have all-the-fruit all-the-time in your home-store. No matter what time of year, THRIVE freeze dried fruit is "fresher-than-fresh".
