Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day but during the week it can be hard to keep this healthy. Not with this amazing breakfast to go recipe though! I promise you won’t even miss that egg muffin or chocolate croissant you just can’t walk past when you order your Latte in the morning.

According to many studies, people who eat breakfast tend to consume fewer calories over the course of the day. I’ve tested that theory plenty of times on myself and have to say I disagree. I feel like when I eat something in the morning, I tend to get hungry again at around the same time I start to get hungry if I don’t eat breakfast. I then don’t eat less for lunch or dinner, because I had breakfast and are less hungry, the hunger stays pretty much at the same level. So over the course of the day, I would consume more calories, because I have had an additional 300 – 400 calories in the morning.

As I said though, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and going for a long brunch on the weekend can brighten up my whole week! At the same time, I don’t like being rushed when I eat, so during weekdays I either skip breakfast or need a breakfast to go, that I can take to work and then eat at my desk when I have time. The place I work at, offers a selection of breakfast cereal but I think we can all agree that cereal contains way to much sugar and not enough nutrition. Also, it doesn’t fill me up. If I eat a bowl of cereal, I am hungry again in an hour.

Back when I used to work from home there was no need for a breakfast to go. I would make myself a big bowl of Muesli, with low fat yogurt and fruits. Oh boy, do I love Muesli and it fills you up for a very long time! So when I started working in an office again, I really started to miss my morning Muesli. But thank god glass jars are the hippest thing right now. I make a big batch on Sunday, fill it in mason jars and my week is sorted! No more hunger-driven croissant purchases while getting my coffee.

Since blueberries and strawberries are my favourite fruits in the world, I usually add them but you can use any type of fruits you like. I like to mix it up every so often and use different fruits or add some nuts, just play around, it’s fun!

Recipe Notes

These measurements are for a Muesli in a 16 oz mason jar. Depending on how hungry you are in the mornings, you can also use a smaller jar and just use about 1/3 of the ingredients.

I like to use frozen fruits as I alway have some at home and this works perfect if you are preparing the jars the day before or make a big batch for the week on a Sunday.
