The novelty of air travel has completely worn off. I used to enjoy the suspense of waiting on the tarmac to take off, the excitement of leaving the earth and watching other people on the plane. Today, the whole process felt more like torture. This was not helped by the two young children who screamed the entire duration of the flight, the man beside me who hogged the armrest or that everyone around me seemed to have a cold or flu.
Thankfully, I had a good breakfast with me to help brighten my day. Airports aren’t exactly renowned for their healthy food options so I usually bring my own. This breakfast mix looks kind of like pet food but was the perfect portable meal. I prepared the mix last night so all I had to do was grab it out of the fridge as I walked out the door. I used an old cottage cheese container so I could just toss the it in the bin when I was finished, saving on precious baggage space.
This mixture was a mix of Nature’s Path Blueberry Almond Muesli, milk, chia seeds, banana, cinnamon and sultanas. Because it is left over night, the mixture is soft, creamy and very moreish. What made this really special, was the peanut butter and jam on top. Mm! I’d make this again at home even if I didn’t need a breakfast on the go.
