Bircher Muesli Recipe
You are what you eat. A large part of my job is making sure that people are eating as healthy as possible. I don't expect perfection, but there are lots of little ways to improve your overall health by paying attention to what you eat and making good food choices. I'm a regular person with a busy life, so I have developed lots of tricks and recipes to keep myself and my family eating healthy foods even when we are short on time. One of my favourite recipes for a healthy breakfast is this Bircher Museli Recipe which I've adapted from Toronto cookbook author Bonnie Stern. It's delicious and I can make it Sunday and eat it all week long!
2.5 cups oats
1/2 cup milk (cow, soy, almond, or any other will work)
1 apple - grated
3/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup plain yogurt (coconut or soy yogurt would also work here, or you could just add extra non-dairy milk if you live dairy-free)
2 cups berries (fresh or frozen)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight - enjoy in the morning and all week long!
Feel free to add quinoa flakes, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, or anything you like to fit your taste buds.
