What is Bircher Muesli?
Bircher muesli is very similar to soaked oats but with lots of apples. In the early 1900s, a Swiss physician named Maximilian Bircher-Benner Claimed he cured his own jaundice by eating raw apples; after his recovery, he began encouraging his patients to eat raw fruits and vegetables to cure their ailments.
