What is Muesli?
Translated, muesli (pronounced “muse-lee”) means “stew” or “mix” because it is a mix of various nutritious grains, nuts, seeds and dried fruits. Muesli was first introduced over 100 years ago by Swiss nutritionist, Maximilian Bircher-Benner, who believed diet was essential to good health and used the cereal as part of his therapy. Today, muesli remains a breakfast staple in Europe and many parts of the world.
MUESLI VS GRANOLA…WHAT’S THE DIFF?
They have the similar ingredients (grains, nuts, seeds and fruits), but can be much different. In short, you could think of muesli as a less processed granola. Here’s why:
- Not baked. Our Bircher muesli is raw and all others are lightly toasted for 10-15 minutes. Just enough to cure the honey, while retaining the nutrition.
- No oils. There are enough good fats in our nuts and seeds, so you can save your oil intake for dinner.
- Less sweet. Our Bircher muesli is completely unsweetened. All other flavors are lightly sweetened with organic honey. No refined sugars. Ever. Promise.
HOW DO YOU EAT IT?
One of the best things about mueslis is the versatility. Eat it cold with milk or yogurt, eat it hot like oatmeal, or soak it to unleash the nutrition and flavors. You can even mix it into pancakes, cookies or muffins. Our mueslis are so unprocessed, you can think of it as a clean slate. Go crazy people, and we’d love to hear your ideas!
WHATS WITH THE NAME?
We don’t know about you, but we like to take Sundays nice and slow. Take time to prepare a breakfast or brunch, read the newspaper, drink some good coffee, relax and unwind before the crazy week ahead. We’d love it if every day was more like a Sunday. In fact, we’ve already started. Mondays are our new Sundays since we spend most weekends in grocery stores or at events. Maybe someday we will change the name to Seven Mondays? Or maybe not…
Our mueslis are wheat free, but contain rye and barley. Both of these grains are nutritional powerhouses, but contain gluten. Our Vanilla Cherry Pecan muesli only contains organic oats (no rye or barley), but is not yet gluten-free certified.
We currently use organic oats and honey, but because of the diversity of our recipes, it would not be economically feasible for us to use all organic ingredients at our current scale. As we grow, we hope to continue to source more organic ingredients, and someday become certified organic. Until then, rest assured that we are extremely careful when
