Breakfast Just Got GUUD
GUUD is creating a cereal revolution with recipes that are not only GUUD for you, but that you will want to eat every day because they taste so GUUD. Grandad called it Muesli. We call it GUUD Modern Muesli.
Every GUUD recipe is a unique mix of plant-based and super clean whole foods in perfect combo’s to deliver bursting flavor and function to your bowl.
Our goal at GUUD is for everyone to enjoy what they eat and achieve optimal health because if we all eat GUUD, we feel GUUD and can be GUUD.
When suggested by my exercise physiologist that I switch from granola to museli for breakfast, I compared the package info about calories, fat, protein, etc content and was surprised at the difference. After making the switch, I was surprised at the weight loss I experienced.
I switched from eating a half a bagel with coffee at breakfast to muesli and coffee for breakfast. While the calorie count is roughly the same, I am much less hungry in the hours leading up to lunch. I have also lost a few pounds. I prefer to eat it hot (ready in two minutes!), while my husband prefers it cold (ready immediately!).
Great for making overnight oats. I add some shaved coconut and almond milk and let it sit overnight in a small mason jar..it's ready in the morning to grab and go for a quick breakfast.
Considering that cereal is inexpensive, super simple to make, portable, and tasty, it's no wonder that it's been a staple for the first meal of the day.
That being said, in that long long aisle of cereal they are not all created equal; most are basically the equivalent of eating dessert!
If you're under the impression that you have to give up cereal for breakfast all together to eat healthfully, rest assured that you don't. There are choices that are full of fiber, healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals without the sugar.
Cereal has plenty to offer to fuel your day as you need it to — you simply have to choose wisely.

Eat it Hot!
Heat on the stovetop or microwave
Add milk, water, or yogurt in a jar overnight

What's in most cereals?
If you're looking to up your breakfast game, unfortunately you'll have to weed out many types of cereals and granolas that don't provide much in terms of nutrition.
Most cereals in the grocery store are made with processed grains (such as refined wheat, corn and rice) as well as lots of added sugar. Many popular cereals also contain artificial sweeteners, flavors and additives to help improve their taste.
Because the majority of breakfast cereals lack whole food ingredients, they're missing the protein and fiber that's essential for keeping you energized and satisfied.
Another major concern with most breakfast cereals is consumption of too much added sugar (including granola!), which is associated with issues including weight gain, cravings for more sweets, and potentially gut issues and inflammation throughout your body.
The result? You wind up eating a breakfast that is convenient and tasty, but you're likely to deal with hunger, cravings and low energy shortly after.
This is obviously not the ideal way to start your day.
The health benefits of muesli are many and include being GUUD for skin, GUUD for energy, GUUD for sleep, GUUD for weight management and GUUD for that digestive system that may need some TLC.
Muesli is better for you than granola. Granola is filled with sugar and cooked with oils while muesli is whole, unprocessed foods with no or very little added sugar.
While oatmeal is healthy, it is a bit boring. Muesli brings additional flavor and nutrition with added nuts, seeds and dried fruit.
