Okay, I know oatmeal is good for you, but a big bowl of cooked oatmeal sits in my stomach like a ton of bricks. I hate that feeling, so I’ve avoided eating oatmeal for years. Then a few months ago, I bought my first raw food cookbook, Raw Food: A Complete Guide for Every Meal of the Day. I expanded on a recipe for muesli that has become my favorite breakfast. It’s different every time, based on what I have on hand.
