One of my favorite products that I encountered at theNatural Products Expo was Seven Sundays muesli. As a breakfast item, it is a way better than oatmeal or granola. For those not familiar with muesli it is a popular form of breakfast cereal in Europe, made with rolled oats, nuts and fruit. I like muesli because it is both healthy and the proteins really fill me up. I regularly forget to eat breakfast; although, I found myself eating Seven Sundays muesli for breakfast all week.
Seven Sundays muesli is made with natural and minimally processed ingredients. It has no preservatives, no refined sugar, no additional oil, high in fiber, low sodium and is cholesterol free. I picked up a sample at the show and began munching on a one pound box at my desk; I can say that it filled me up and kept me satiated through the entire day. One day I ate a bowl with milk and fruit for breakfast and I totally forgot to eat lunch that day. If you know me, this is a little shocking to believe that I would miss lunch; I eat like a pig.
Here is my analysis on their flavors:
Organic whole wheat oats, whole grain barley, organic whole wheat rye, honey, raisins, coconut, macadamia nuts, pears, pumpkin seeds, golden flax seeds, ginger.
I liked the balance of flavors provided by multiple types of nuts, grains and dried fruits, much better than eating plain oatmeal (no protein) or granola which has too much sugar. I liked the interplay of flavors between the ginger, coconut and fresh fruit. This muesli was very complex with rustic with multiple grains, seeds and spices of the ginger. I loved it.
Vanilla Cherry Pecan:
Organic whole grain oats, bing cherries, pecans, coconut, honey, pure vanilla powder.
Although this muesli has just as many calories and nutritional value as the other flavors, it had a sweeter flavors than the others and might be a great way of introducing muesli to children. I personally loved it because I knew I was eating natural foods, but getting the same sugar flavor as refined and processed products. I can see myself using this product as a topper for ice cream, or even for recipes. This flavor is easy to like and is perfect cooked into porridge.
Organic whole grain oats, organic whole grain barley, organic whole grain rye, almonds, apples, coconut, dates, golden flax seeds, pepitas (raw pumpkin seeds), sunflower seeds, and spices.
This muesli flavors is packed with ingredients, flavors and nutrients! Made with 12 different natural ingredients, you pretty much have your alphabets of nutrients covered from A to K vitamins. Bircher muesli is unsweetened and untoasted, very close to the original muesli developed by Dr. Bircher in 1900 to treat his patients with natural nutrients.
Original Toasted Muesli:
It is made with organic whole grain oats, organic whole grain barley, organic whole grain rye, almonds, banana chips, Brazil nuts, coconuts, currants, golden flax seeds, honey, pepitas (raw pumpkin seeds), raisins, and spices.
This was another muesli chocked full of ingredients, although balanced in flavor so that no one ingredient dominates. I was pretty impressed with the flavor and found myself knocking off the entire one pound pack over the course of two days. Food research has it’s perils folks!
