The pumpkin seeds in our muesli are an excellent source of protein, magnesium, and zinc. Toasting brings out the nutty nuances in the blend. Serve it with low-fat plain Greek yogurt and fresh fruit, such as pitted sweet cherries or berries. Both are high in fiber and rich in antioxidants.
Toasting the oats and almonds before soaking them gives this muesli a nuttier flavor. Be sure to buy old-fashioned oats, not quick-cooking -- the latter aren't as flavorful and chewy.

Here's a delicious way to ward off cold weather: Serve hot cider spiced like an apple pie. Season your cider with the same spices you would use in a pie-cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg-then heat it up. If you'd like, pour in brandy for adults. Add a cinnamon stick to each mug for stirring.
