What is muesli?

At the Natural Products Expo East last week, I was introduced to two brands of muesli. The first product I tried was from Seven Sundays. I tried the Vanilla Cherry Pecan Muesli in yogurt and it was very good. The Vanilla Cherry Pecan contained dried bing cherries, coconut, honey, pecans, pure vanilla powder and whole grain oats, and I thought that it was a great way to add some extra nutrition to yogurt.
- Eat it like cold cereal with milk poured over it. Some people like to let it soak overnight in the milk.
- Add fresh berries to the muesli.
- Eat it hot like oatmeal by using ½ cup of boiling water for each ½ cup of muesli.
- Use it to make baked goods like Seven Sunday’s Farmer’s Market Muesli Cookies or Muesli Fusion’s Apple Cinnamon Protein Muffins.
- Raw, unprocessed ingredients, offering you food as nature intended it to be.
- Whole grains provide valuable energy-rich carbohydrates, B-complex vitamins, iron, and cholesterol-fighting soluble fiber.
- Dried fruits are rich in antioxidants, vitamin A, and immune-boosting vitamin C.
- Nuts and seeds provide protein, omega-3 oils along with several antioxidants and vitamins.
