Before every trip, I promise myself that this time I’ll pack a homemade breakfast. And then as I’m running out the door to catch my flight because I’ve only just packed my suitcase, I swear it for next time. And you know how the story goes next time. It’s on repeat. What’s also on repeat—the way I feel after traveling. Not good. My body is in such a steady rhythm, that one little hiccup and an order of airport food will throw it out of alignment. Completely. So as we enter into a season laden with travel, either by plane, train, or automobile, I want to pass on a life-saving tip I’ve only just learned. Pack a travel ready breakfast —a bag (or 2) of Seven Sundays Muesli, a bowl and a disposable spoon, and an iPad for reading pleasure. Wherever you find yourself, just buy a small jug of milk.
This post was created in partnership with Seven Sundays, muesli made with minimal, wholesome, real ingredients. Our pantry shelves are filled with it. When we’re not eating it soaked or warmed, we eat it straight out of the bag. It’s that good.
If you’re new to muesli, let’s back up. It’s usually a mixture of oats, nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. Hannah, co-founder of Seven Sundays, crafted her muesli recipe after having some of the best in her life during her honeymoon to New Zealand. It came together on her kitchen counter, in a passed-down bowl, using real, simple ingredients. It’s lightly sweetened with organic honey. And it’s also the best muesli I’ve ever had, pinky promise. Muesli is cereal gone right. Hal loves it too. You can eat it soaked in milk, overnight or 15 minutes. You can also eat it warm (like oatmeal) or over yogurt (like granola). We eat it straight out of the bag too. It’s hard to imagine how such a simple list of ingredients can taste so good, but they do. And by simple, I mean: gluten-free whole grain oats, organic honey, dried bing cherries, coconut chips, pecans, flax seeds, and pure vanilla extract. That’s it!
Seven Sundays Muesli is perfect for travel. The package is resealable, so it’s safe after a jostle in your bag. It’s wholesome. Made with real, pronounceable, recognizable ingredients. (This should be the norm, but it’s not.) There’s 6 servings in a bag. It could easily feed a family once or you for a couple days. And best of all, it’s got a slim profile, slimmer than that book you’re carrying around. Trust me when I say, travel with Seven Sundays. Check the store locator first. You can usually find it at Target and Whole Foods in the cereal aisle. Show me your shelfie once you’ve replaced your cereal boxes with Seven Sundays bags. That’s coming next. I pinky promise.
