Lately I’ve been trying to get a bit healthier with my diet and lifestyle and it made sense to start with the first meal of the day; Breakfast.
I’ve always gone for the easy option and bungled a bit of bread in the toaster then ran out the door for work once eaten or a bowl of cereal that’s full of sugar. Having hated muesli and granola as a kid, I never took the plunge in trying them again until recently.
After trying granola and realising I absolutely love it, I decided to venture into the world of Muesli and see what it had to offer. My brand of choice for my first dabble came in the form of Moma. I’ve tried some of these products before and absolutely love their porridge range, so I thought I’ give their DIY Bircher Muesli a go.
Bircher Muesli for those of you that are wondering; is an oat mix with fruits and seeds. Moma use gluten-free oats in their products which is a huge plus for me as too much makes my stomach all funny. This Bircher Muesli is raspberry and coconut and contains raisins, apple, sunflower seeds, coconut flakes, desiccated coconut, raspberries and blackcurrant as well as their usual gluten-free oats.
Now the reason it’s called DIY Bircher Muesli is because it’s great for those of us that don’t have a lot of time in our morning routines. Here’s 3 ways the folks at Moma recommend trying this product:
- Just add milk or a dairy free alternative (1 minute to make)
- Add to a bowl and mix with either yoghurt or apple juice and leave it to soak (5 minutes to make)
- As above but if you have more time you could grate some apple of add more chopped up fruits (10 minutes to make)
I’ve only tried mine with almond milk so far but would give it 10/10 for taste and texture. Next on my list to try it to pop some apple juice in and leave them to soak and see what they can do.
I would definitely recommend Moma and their DIY Bircher Muesli if you’re looking for a healthier alternative for your breakfast routine. If you have any other recommendations then please drop me a comment below.
