For some reason, mondays always feels a little bit like a fresh restart. Like the first day of the month or New Year’s Day.

I wake up and feel particularly motivated. In my weekly plan I write down my to-do’s for the coming days and try to create a good structure.

I’ve been trying to work intensively on acquiring a good morning routine.

If I start the day without a plan, it usually goes on like that until the evening.

It’s quite different when I follow my routine and thus allow my body and my mind a balanced, fresh start in the day.

This routine looks like this:

7:15 am: The alarm goes off.

Snoooooze. (Who, please WHO manages to get up at the first alarm clock ringing?!)

7:30 am: I finally get up.

The first thing I do is drink a warm lemon water while I put on my sportswear. In good weather I go running, in bad weather I do exercises on the mat at home.

8:15 am: Shower. First warm and then ice-cold. I feel like a new born after that.

After the shower I meditate for 5-10 minutes. Sometimes it’s incredibly easy for me, other times it’s difficult. But that’s ok. The most important thing for me is that I allow myself this few minutes ME-time and fully focus on myself, my breath and my inner peace.

8:30 am: One of my most favorite parts of the day- BREAKFAST. It’s another very important point in my morning routine. I can’t function without a good, healthy breakfast. It gives me energy and keeps me full until lunch.

This is where this crunchy almond granola with cranberries comes into play. You only need 6 ingredients and 5 minutes of preparation time and have a power breakfast for the next days.

I love mixing oat and spelt flakes. But you can easily use only oat flakes or only spelt flakes. When I have large AND small leaf oat flakes at home, I mix them.

Whether you use only oat flakes for the almond granola, or spelt flakes, or both together, or small/large-leaved oat flakes, or simply put a part of it for a few seconds in a mixer to grind them. It is up to you.

I usually chop the almonds very roughly because I like it when I have large, crunchy pieces in my granola. Is that how you feel, too? 🙂

Crunch. Crunch.

The almond granola can be stored for a few weeks in a jar or air tight container.

I like it best with cold oat milk and fresh fruit. It also tastes delicious with yoghurt or chia pudding. Or as a snack in the afternoon. 🙂

Happy Monday guys!
