Muesli is a balanced combination of cereals, dry fruits and fresh fruits. It is a complete breakfast by itself as it contains a good dose of protein, calcium, iron, fibre, vitamins and antioxidants. You can mix up all the dry ingredients and stock it in an air-tight container, so you just need to add the chopped fruits and milk when consuming on a time-pressed day!
