Food of the Sunlight: Bircher Muesli

Maximilian Oskar Bircher-Benner (1867-1939) believed in what he called "food of the sunlight," meals based on biological, natural ingredients. What's not to believe about that?

This Bircher Muesli recipe can be doubl
ed, tripled, or quadrupled, and is excellent for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

1/2 cup organi
c oats (not the steel cut kind)
a little shy of 1 cup heavy cream, almond milk, water, or a combination thereof
1 or 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice (optional)

Pour liquid over oats, cover, and allow to soak in the refrigerator overnight.

Before eating, add a pinch of sea salt and cinnamon to the oats, and top with grated organic apple, blueberries or other fresh fruit, raw almonds or walnuts, and a generous drizzle of maple syrup.

Need a little extra soulshine today? Eat a sunny bowl of Bircher Muesli!
