I don’t eat cereal … but if I did, I would.

I certainly would. How does it taste ? Been eating the muesli every day. Enjoying it, especially with virgin coconut oil, no milk.

It tastes great. Coconut oil ? Interesting. Doesn’t it taste oily ?

Yes, doesn’t sound too exciting !

Not oily in the least. Virgin coconut oil – very light. Getting to like it more and more.
