Make It. Müsli.

Everyday one of my Swiss coworkers brings this to work as breakfast, and I finally sampled and made my own. The results: delicious!

Müsli is a Swiss-German word for mess, and this is basically the casserole of breakfast foods. You just add basically anything. Some of the combinations: banana, apple, blueberries, yogurt OR condensed milk, rolled oats, seeds, raisins, nuts. The list goes on.

Started by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner nearly a century ago when he started feeding his patients this mix, this recipe has gone beyond hospital food and is commonly eaten in the mornings.

It's also great as an afternoon snack (as I had it) and a bit of flaxseed makes it a bit nuttier and adds even more fiber.
