Before I left Cressey Performance a long time client gave me a little going away present to try. It was a chia and cardamon muesli from a company called Thoreau Foods, and it was awesome. Thank you Kathy.
This muesli contained oat bran, oats, barley, flax, sunflower seeds, raisins, apricots, chia, cardamon and more and most ingredients were organic.
I tried it a few different ways. I soaked it for about 10-15 minutes in some unsweetened vanilla almond milk and added some chopped fruit to it. That was fantastic. I also cooked it like a normal oatmeal and added some chopped fruit to it, of course that was also fantastic.
This product, and others offer by Thoreau Foods, offer some nice variety over plain oatmeal, and are pretty much ready to eat immediately as they contain high quality carbs, fats and some fruit. They are located right in Boxborough, Mass for you New England readers.
I encourage you to check them out and give some of their products a try, I know I will!
