Bircher's Muesli has protein in it and is apparently very digestible
For this I soaked overnight organic apple juice
Half cup rolled oats
Handful of raisins
Handful of sunflower seeds
1 tbl linseed
A few dates
A few almonds
Add yoghurt or kefir the next day and then fruit.
Sesame seeds have 18 g protein per 100 gm
Sunflower seeds have 21 gm
Flax seed has 18 gm per 100 gm
Yoghurt has 24 g per cup (a big serving)
I'll be grating apples into this during the apple season, that's for sure. Apples they say are non negotiable and I have none in this! And you can do it with old fashioned oatmeal – if you can find it in the shops that is.
If you are feeding someone over the age of 70 then this is highly recommended as a breakfast food. My husband doesn't like porridge, but as he needs a lot of protein in his diet, this is a way of getting some oats into him at breakfast.
Here is 100 gm of sunflower seeds. Nearly a cupful. You are not likely to consume this in one meal but it has 21 gm of protein in it.
