When you think of muesli, hiking through the Swiss alps might come to mind. You may think of a bland granola with crunchy nuts and chewy raisins. Or maybe the rolled oats your grandma would serve you for breakfast. But since moving to Switzerland, I have learned that muesli is so much more than rolled oats and grains!
Muesli, or Müsli in Swiss German, was developed around 1900 by a Swiss physician called Maximilian Bircher-Benner. That is why you may also here the term “Birchermüesli”. It is now common to eat this crunchy mix for breakfast typically with milk or yogurt. But Muesli was actually made for eating as an appetizer before dinner.
I have tried many different types of muesli since moving here but my favourite brand by FAR is mymuesli. The brand originates from Germany and they have been around since 2007. What is great about them is that all of their ingredients are 100% organic and have zero artificial flavours, preservatives or colours! Their products are great because while they already have so many flavours to choose from, you can also make your own mix specific to your taste! There are 566 quadrillion possible muesli mixes, YES QUADRILLION! So you can really customize your muesli or porridge to how you really like it.
I want to recommend you the best possibilities to try and you can truly take my word when I say mymuesli is the best! I usually eat mine with vanilla yogurt, but it is so flavourful you can really just snack on it right out of the tube!
