Bircher Muesli w/ Pink Lady Apple, Orange, Vanilla + Pomegranate

This is my signature muesli recipe that I love to enjoy as a healthy breakfast. Scented with orange and vanilla with a hint of pomegranate,  you’ll be in heaven with every mouthful. I often double the recipe and divide into glass jars so I have enough muesli to take to work for a few days. Enjoy.

What’s great about it:

Oats are a great source of soluble fibre that fills you up, so you feel fuller for longer. According to studies, the beta-glucan fiber found in oats can help regulate your appetite for up to 4 hours as well as help lower cholesterol. Chia is also high in plant based omega 3. Research shows that plant-based omega-3 is essential for a healthy heart. Orange is rich in antioxidants that can help boost immune function and protect the body against disease and also high in soluble fibre that helps to reduce cholesterol. When it comes to apples, look for organic apples without pesticides. Cultured yoghurt is high in probiotics that help support your digestive system and keep it healthy. Pomegranate is high in vitamin C to aid in collagen production and it supports healthy heart function by reducing blood pressure and inflammation in the body.

+ notes & inspiration +
  • Other fruits are lovely with this muesli – try using pear in place of apple and garnish with fresh ripe figs and roasted walnuts.
  • Pump up the protein and add 1 tablespoon of Healthy Chef Protein into the orange juice before soaking the oats.
