Muesli is a breakfast enjoyed by millions of people throughout the world. The Bircher muesli breakfast, formulated by Dr Bircher-Benner in his wonderful sanatorium in the Swiss Alps, was an attempt to make a food as perfect as possible. Muesli is based on a mixture containing raw cereal, such as oats, to which is added dried fruit, bran or wheatgerm and sometimes nuts and raw sugar. It is eaten with milk or cream and fresh fruit, usually at breakfast.

Thousands of Swiss thrive upon it, and people from all over the world go to Zurich to eat it at 7 o’clock in the morning and again at 6 o’clock at night. Dr Bircher-Benner believes that the main meal of the day should be taken at noon.

Today, muesli is prepared commercially in many varying forms. It is simple to make, and many families develop their own special recipe.

By using the whole apple, skin and all, you increase the minerals in muesli and make it a really 100% natural breakfast. The addition of 1 tablespoon toasted chopped nuts – almonds, hazelnuts, Brazil – can provide a crunch and additional protein.
