Bircher Muesli

how to make bircher muesli
  • Ali

You know me, I love to make breakfast one of the most important parts of my day. It's a way to kick start your metabolism after the fast of the night before, so stating your day with something that will fuel you is essential to overall health. At this time of year I start to think about warmer breakfasts and yet I still love a bircher muesli. Placed in the fridge to work it's magic overnight it is a great way to ensure you start your day with essential vitamins and minerals, complex carbohdrates, healthy fats and a little fruit sugar to energise you. Enjoy.
