What the heck is muesli and why should you eat it?
If you’re like me, you’ve heard of muesli but gravitate toward granola. But once I open a bag or box of the crunchy goodness, chances are it won’t last long. If it’s good granola, the calorie count is going to be high, and even on my longest-run days, it’s not the healthiest decision...

FEBRUARY 2015: HEAVY TABLE

I love gluten. It’s among my top ten favorite things about being alive, right in between sauvignon blanc and the music of John Coltrane. And when I see the phrase “gluten-free” my brain autocorrects to “incomplete flavor,” “weird texture alert!” or “we did the best we could, considering.” That’s why I’m happy to report some good news for the celiacs out there: the newest muesli from Seven Sundays is gluten free and tastes just as wonderful as their previous blends...

JANUARY 2013: WOMEN & CO.

It’s not uncommon for women to re-think their diets during pregnancy. Once they start “eating for two” they tend to shun chemicals, pesticides, and yes, their daily Diet Coke!

OCTOBER 2012: MPLS ST PAUL MAGAZINE

You know, it can be very fun to say: muesli . . . myooo-zlee. Introduced in the 1900s by Swiss doctor Maximilian Bircher-Benner (also fun to say), this breakfast of uncooked rolled oats, fruits, seeds, and nuts has heretofore been branded as hippie food, never quite achieving granola’s scruffy-sexy status. Well, that might soon change…

JUNE 2012: IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT

Muesli is a popular breakfast cereal that is predominately made up of rolled oats, fruits, nuts, seeds, and flakes (wheat, barley, and rye).
