Grain-free Kosher for Pesach Muesli
Everyone struggles with breakfast during Pesach. Usual go-tos include matzah, egg matzah and the kosher for Pesach, high in sugar, Crispy-O’S . Many seem to struggle when it comes to eating a healthy breakfast on Pesach.
This truly should not be the case as there are many healthier breakfast options to chose from, that are very easy to prepare. It is also important to remember that during Pesach, your aim is not only to find healthier meal alternatives, but also to increase your fibre intake to prevent constipation as a result of the lack of whole-grain products consumed.
This muesli does not only have a much lower sugar content, but it is loaded with healthy fats and it certainly is overflowing with fibre from the coconut and nuts.
The cinnamon is great for blood sugar control, while the ginger assists with the reduction of inflammation.
