Chunky or fine?

I like to make my own muesli. Not because it’s particularly cheaper or healthier or any other noble reason other than it tastes good. I don’t use a complicated recipe, but I do use macadamia nuts. That makes it feel indulgent. It feels like I’m having dessert for breakfast some days.

There is one pivotal decision when it comes to making a batch…how fine to chop the macadamias?

Too fine and you lose the presence of the macadamia itself. It blends into the other ingredients and kind of loses the justification of the higher price tag. It needs to be chunky enough to know it’s there. To feel the crunch and appreciate the flavour.

What other aspects of life present us with similar decisions? Blending in or standing out?

Make your presence known…and, potentially, your nuttiness too.
