How I fuel for the morning

Updated: Jun 28, 2018

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I like to power up the day with a creamy fruit and nuts Bircher muesli. Here's my recipe:

Bircher Muesli Power Up Breakfast
Bircher Muesli Power Up Breakfast

My version of Bircher Muesli is great for keeping the stomach calm the morning after chemotherapy but it really is just delicious for any day of the week!

Power Up Bircher Muesli


2 handfuls of organic steel cut porridge oats

1 organic apple

small handful of almonds

5 hazelnuts

3 tbs full fat organic plain yogurt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Handful of blueberries


Whizz the oats in a blender and set aside.

Slice the apple and blend in the blender

Blend the nuts into the apple

Empty into a bowl and add the oats, cinnamon and mix in the yoghurt until well mixed, add more yoghurt if needs be.

Wash the blueberries and place on top of the mix.

Eat and enjoy!

Clare's Tips

  • You can do this the night before breakfast and leave in the fridge for a more relaxing morning.

  • If you are really low in energy add a few chopped dates on top

  • If you are having trouble with sleep add a kiwi when blending the apple

  • During chemotherapy add a probiotic - open up a capsule and mix into the yogurt for even more gut vitality
