"Bircher - Benner Muesli" (for one)

"Bircher - Benner Muesli" (for one)

Dr Max E. Bircher in his book "Fruit Dishes and Raw Vegetables" (published 1926) recommends this raw fruit porridge complete with grated apple pips, for "remarkable purity and pleasant taste," leading to "better nourishment, more strength, revived organs, purfied blood, and cast out poisons and bacteria from the body". Actually it is a surprisingly light and delicious Meusli that should be prepared immediately before eating. Grating, chopping, shredding any vegetable or fruit helps destroy vitamins and minerals as does prolonged cooking. Take and mix together:—
  • 1 large apple; grate all, skin, core, pips.
  • 1 tablespoon nuts, (finely grated almonds are good).
  • 1 large tablespoon rolled oats.
  • Juice of half a lemon.
  • Top milk or cream to mix.
