Dr. Bircher-Benner was a genius. He needed to nourish his patients but he knew that facts of nutrition were no match for the universal expectations for enjoyment. He created a blend of hearty whole grains, toasty seeds, and sweet dried fruit that was irresistible to his patients. Now we've created muesli that is just as scrumptious and nourishing but without the gluten. Try it as a hot or cold cereal or, in the Swiss style, soaked overnight in milk or yogurt.
Swiss physicians Dr. Maximilian Bircher-Benner was really on to something special when, in the late 1800's, he invented muesli for his patients. He was ahead of his time in understanding that food is the best medicine, but he also knew that it simply wouldn't be eaten if it wasn't delicious. With those facts firmly in mind, he created an irresistible but healthy mélange of grain, fruit and nuts that his patients devoured joyfully on their way to wellness.
Despite the supremacy of eating muesli for breakfast, the nearly 10% of us that need or choose to avoid gluten have been left out — until now. In the spirit of Dr. Bircher-Benner's mission of health and my own love of healing with whole grains, I've created a terrific blend of healthy and tasty, gluten free ingredients - verified by testing - that you'll devour joyfully, too. It makes a great hot porridge or ready-to-eat cold cereal. You can also try it the traditional Swiss way (how I love it best) and soak it in the fridge overnight in milk or yogurt. Then, grate half an apple to top it off.
To your good health, Bob Moore
