Bob's Red Mill Old Country Style Muesli, 18 oz
Muesli is a cereal made from whole grains, dried fruit, nuts and seeds inspired by the traditional Swiss cereal.
Many years ago, my wife Charlee and I stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast in the Scottish countryside. One morning, our hostess served us the most amazing cereal. It was full of rolled grains, nuts, seeds and dried fruit. This was my first contact with the traditional European cereal known as muesli. A quick bit of history: muesli was invented over a century ago by a Swiss doctor who was way ahead of his time when it came to understanding the health benefits of whole grains. He made all of his patients eat muesli every day, and they loved it!
I enjoyed that muesli so much that I was inspired to make my very own version of this nutritious cereal. I started with a combination of five flavorful rolled grains - oats, wheat, barley, rye and triticale. Then I added sweet dates and raisins, crunchy sunflower seeds, almond slices and walnut pieces. Finally, for an extra boost of nutrition, I topped it off with a good handful of flaxseed meal. Voila! Bob's Red Mill Old Country Style Muesli was born. Whether you eat it hot, cold, or soaked in yogurt overnight (the traditional Swiss way), I just know you will enjoy this wholesome cereal.
To your good health,
