Autumn Harvest Muesli
I pretty much eat muesli every single morning. There’s so many ways to make it, combining different fruits. Until now, I never thought to add shredded carrot to my muesli.

My favorite thing in this recipe is the little yellow cherry tomatoes. They are sweeter than red cherry tomatoes, I eat them like candy. Ingredients: ½ cup plain soy yogurt...
