Muesli - Eat It Right
The word Muesli comes from the variation of the German word “mus” which means porridge. Maximilian Bircher-Bernner, a Swiss physician is credited with the invention of Muesli - a mix of oat flakes, raw apples, condensed milk, nuts, honey, and lemon juice. This recipe led to major improvements in the health of many of his patients. The Swiss doctor came to the conclusion that much of the sickness experienced by his patients could be reduced or taken care of with increased physical exercise and a highly nutritious diet. Through a rich diet of raw grains, fruits, and vegetables, and some exercises like walking and gardening, Birch-Benner was able to prevent many diseases.
A Swiss company Somalon AG, now called bio-familia AG mass-produced Muesli in 1959. Dr. Bircher-Benner’s recipe was used by Somalon AG to create “Bio-Birchermuesli - healthy food for the whole family”. Bio-Birchermuesli was exported to Germany, Austria, the US, England, and even the Netherlands in the 1960s. “Crunchy Muesli” was introduced by the company in the 1970s to cater to US taste preferences. This variant was made of muesli toasted with sugars and oils, similar to the granola bars of today. In a book published by Dr. Bircher-Benner, the muesli recipe called for 2 or 3 small apples, a spoon of nuts, a spoonful of condensed milk and the juice of half a lemon. This dish was served at the beginning of every meal and not just at breakfast time.
Research has confirmed that breakfast cereal eaters have more nutritious diets with a higher chance of meeting the recommended nutrient intakes and a reduced risk of being overweight. High fibre and whole grain breakfast cereals have been found to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Oats contain a soluble fibre - beta-glucan, which assists in lowering cholesterol levels. Though sugary cereals and delicacies might be tempting, they’re full of sugar
and lots of other preservatives. Muesli often has less sugar and fewer calories and that makes it a healthy breakfast option. Since it’s high in fibre and whole grains, your digestive tract will be regulated. Another advantage of muesli is that it’s very filling. You will never find yourself starving or feeling hungry shortly after eating it. Raw oats also contain a lot of resistant starch which makes muesli a very filling breakfast that takes a long time to digest. The resistant starch is broken down in your stomach and the digestive acids that suppress your appetite are released and this speeds up your metabolism. This process helps you burn more calories in less time. According to studies, beta-glucan - the oat fibre present in muesli helps in reducing cholesterol levels by up to 10%. So by eating muesli regularly, one can improve health drastically and stay in shape with proper exercise. Brands like Baggry’s Kellogg’s and Soulful have a large variety of muesli that you can choose from.

like a lost puppy.
Customize Your Muesli
Eat your cereal the way you like it. But add some tasty and healthy things to make it more nutritious. The most basic and common way to eat muesli is by adding about a half cup of milk to an equal helping of muesli in a bowl. Instead of milk, try adding some plain or flavoured yoghurt. You can also try heating the milk, then letting the muesli soak for a few minutes in the hot milk to let it soften slightly. If you like warm milk but don’t want your muesli to become soggy ,pour some over the cereal in a microwave safe bowl, then heat the whole mixture in the microwave for about 20 to 30 seconds.
Sliced or Frozen Fruit
If you want to liven up your bowl of muesli, try chopping up a quarter-cup or so of your favorite fresh fruit, or adding some frozen fruit for a cold treat. Any of the following fruits work great with a bowl of muesli.
Blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries
