Bircher Muesli Is The King Of Muesli
Do you have sudden food cravings? I am sure you do, we all like a nice tasty snack from time to time. Try this one, great for breakfast, or as a snack.
Bircher muesli is named after its creator, Dr. Bircher Benner, who was ousted from the Swiss medical profession in 1900 for his heretical claims that grains, nuts, fruits and vegetables had more nutritional value than did meats. Don’t be silly, go and wash your mouth out, doctor! In formulating the muesli, Benner had in mind his many patients from wealthy families who were suffering the effects of a diet too high in protein.
Although it was not originally intended as a breakfast food, it certainly fills that niche deliciously. Here’s the recipe. It serves 4 very modest eaters. I could eat the whole lot on a big day.
