Muesli – the best breakfast option?

You may have heard that muesli is a great healthy breakfast, but do you know what it is and whether it’s actually good for you? When it was first developed, muesli was typically a dry cereal made from toasted whole oats, nuts, fruit and wheat flakes. Now, you can find many versions, including gluten-free muesli, fresh muesli (soaked overnight in water or fruit juice to soften), toasted or untoasted muesli, and its close cousin: granola. Depending on how the muesli is made, it’s often more natural and contains less calories and sugar than granola, which usually has more added syrup to aid in the toasting.
