Bircher Muesli

There is something very satisfying about having a bowl of oats porridge in the morning. Aside from tasting good it is so healthy for you – you only have to Google ‘benefits of oats’ to find pages and pages of reasons to eat oats. My only problem with a bowl of oats porridge is that it seems more suited to a cold, wintry morning. Now that summer is here we need something a bit lighter but just as healthy. A bowl of Bircher Muesli is the answer – just don’t forget to prepare it the night before.
