Starting your day with your fair share of nutrients is a must for us when we have a long day ahead and packing everything in a single breakfast fruit bowl is a great way to nail it.
Make this with what you have at home, so just the fruits and add-ons are only directional; the aim here is to not only give you some inspiration but the right mix of kinds of ingredients but some tips on how to achieve a great result, even when you don’t have prepared granola muesli.
Tips to Understand and Master your Breakfast Bowl
Our bodies digest better the nuts, seeds, and oats, when activated in water. Nuts are plant seeds; soaking them for 12 hours can start the germination process, causing changes in the seed.
When you soak nuts and seeds, you minimize their nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances as they are absorbed into the water, and you make it easier for your body to absorb the great stuff.
Rolled oats absorb so much water that you won’t necessarily need to add milk, making it different from eating a granola bowl, which would be dry granola and needs additional moisture on it.
So before going to bed, leave three cups of water for every cup of dry oats, your choice of seeds, and nuts soaking, and just use it as they will be soft in the morning.
In the morning you will have some oats milk to eat with your breakfast bowl.
Remember, you are not only what you eat; you are what you absorb.
Add spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. They are calorie-free and add lots of nutrients to your food. i.e., cinnamon Lowers Blood Sugar Levels and Has a Powerful Anti-Diabetic Effect.
Add berries as they are full of antioxidants.

Breakfast Fruit Bowl
- Soak your oats in water overnight. If you want to have some oats milk, so you don’t need to add milk, add a ratio of 3 cups of water for every cup of oats. You can soak them only 15 minutes before eating them but is better if you do it overnight as they are going to be softer and give you some oats milk.
- Place your soaked oats in a bowl, add the soaked chia seeds and your selection of fresh fruit, top with the cocoa, and maple syrup.
Have a Great Day!!
