Delicious Figs
Delicious Figs

Fresh juicy exotic figs are delicious and are also superfoods that have been around since 8,000 BC. Dried figs are tasty too and filled with even more nutrients than fresh ones.

The Middle East has thrived on figs and has used them in their cooking and to help heal many health concerns.

“Eat it as it cures various diseases among which are Piles, Gout and Arthritis ~ Abu Darda, companion of Rasulullah

If you can find a source of fresh figs then I suggest using fresh figs as it will make your muesli with figs that much more luxurious. You can find them in supermarkets seasonally and in specialty or ethnic supermarkets sometimes as well.   However, if you can’t find any fresh ones then you can also use dried figs as well.  I like to soak dried figs in water for an hour before I use them to re-hydrate them.


Coconuts are generally viewed as fruits in the culinary world.  They add a nutty, sweet, and even tropical flavor to dishes.  Coconut can be used in many ways including coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut water,  dried or fresh coconut, and coconut cream.  Coconuts provide nutritious fats, protein, and fiber as well as some essential minerals. Learn the 12 benefits of  Coconut Oil, this newly declared Amazing SuperFood.


Oats are a low-calorie food that provides high levels of fiber and low levels of fat.  They help to stabilize blood sugar and reduce the risk of diabetes while removing bad cholesterol.

If you want gluten-free oats, here is a very good one Old GF Fashioned Oats–  Harvest Gluten Free Organic Rolled Old Fashioned Oats which is good for cooked oatmeal for porridge. For making a crumble, it is better to have one like this: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Quick Cooking Rolled Oats

“It is now generally accepted that non-contaminated gluten-free oats are safe for a celiac disease diet, with the exception of a small minority of celiacs who may have an additional intolerance to Avenin.”  Says on Oats


Cinnamon Benefits
Cinnamon is Good For You

When we think of cinnamon we usually imagine delicious pastries or a hot drink but cinnamon is also full of health benefits.  These benefits are backed by valid scientific research.  It is helpful from lowering “bad” HDL cholesterol levels to lowering blood sugar levels. This is for sure a valuable superfood to be included in our diet. At the bottom of this article, there are many recipes linked to. All of them are favourites of mine created in my kitchen.

Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds

Delicious nutty sunflower seeds are a popular snack that is undervalued.  They may be small but sunflower seeds are a dense source of nutrients and full of extraordinary health benefits.



Almonds are called “The King of Nuts” for a reason.  They are very tasty and so beneficial for our health. They are my favourite nut; most mornings I add 7 to 10 almonds to my breakfast.


It comes in different colours

There are many health benefits of Quinoa and it is filling like a grain but with much more protein. Quinoa is gluten-free because it is not a grain!  It is a vegetable seed related to Swiss chard, spinach, and beets. Quinoa is pronounced KEEN-wa not kwin-o-a.
