Bircher muesli

When I was doing a ski season in Switzerland a few years back I absolutely fell in love with Bircher muesli!

Muesli was introduced around 1900 by the Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner for patients in his hospital, where a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables was an essential part of therapy. It was inspired by a similar “strange dish” that he and his wife had been served on a hike in the Swiss Alps.

These days there are so many different variations on the Bircher muesli, from simplistic to extravagant – it’s the perfect breakfast if you’re in a rush in the morning since pretty much everything has been prepared the night before!
