Bircher Muesli is an easy breakfast, packed with nutrition that is simple to prep the night before. Whole grains like oats have been a central element of the human diet since early civilization. They are an excellent source of nutrition, as they contain essential enzymes, iron, dietary fiber, Vitamin E, and B-complex vitamins. Because the body absorbs oats slowly, they provide sustained and high-quality energy. Oats are not strictly gluten free due to content, contact, or contamination, but most people find them easy to digest. The almonds and yogurt are a great source of protein, an essential part of a healthy breakfast. And the almonds and chia are good anti-inflammatories along with being great brain food. And the apple and pomegranate contain wonderful antioxidants which support inflammation.
