Feeding the engine.

Take my word for it folks, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you have aspirations of being a skinny dude and want to skip a meal, heed not the words of Claudia Schiffer, skip dinner. Breakfast is holy.

After moving to the USA last year, TTTE and Mrs TTE struggled to find a suitable breakfast food. A cursory glance at their nutritional information reveals that most American breakfast cereals are a bonanza of high fructose corn syrup. No thank you.

Thankfully, salvation comes in the form of Maximilian Oskar Bircher-Benner, whose teachings, together with locally available ingredients allow me to introduce TTTE (and Geoff)’s Muesli.
