I'm a huge fan of Bircher Muesli. Every time I stay in a hotel with breakfast, I'll look forward to having that. You can serve me the fanciest of international breakfast, but I'd like to have my Bircher Muesli first, thank you. Simple things make me happy. I also make it at home because it is super simple to make! =)
Fun fact: Bircher Muesli was developed around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner as part of a healing therapy for his patients. It has remained a popular meal or snack till this day because it is easy to make and is nutrient-packed. You can add anything you desire but popular ingredients include rolled oats, milk, lemon juice, honey, grated apples, cinnamon, dried nuts, dried fruits, toasted coconut, yogurt. This delicious mixture of muesli is packed with flavor and essential nutrients and super healthy!
How To Make Bircher Muesli
For my own Bircher Muesli, I added:
- Traditional rolled oats (the oatmeal grains concoction is soaked overnight with juice or milk to give that mushy texture. Instant oats just lack that somethin'-somethin')
- Chia seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sunflower seeds
- Honey (you can use condensed milk, maple syrup)
- Unsweetened soy milk (or almond milk)
- New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder << secret ingredient!
Simply throw all your favorite fruits/nuts into a mixing bowl with the oats and milk. Mix well and refrigerate overnight. In the morning you'll have delicious overnight oats (alternative name for Bircher Muesli) ready for breakfast!
The Bircher Muesli can be kept up to 5 days (but usually I make just enough for 2 days), so after apportioning my breakfast I'll put the rest back into the fridge.
After that, I'll add my SECRET INGREDIENT. Heeheehee.
The New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder contains one of the highest collagen content at 5,460mg and is packed with anti-aging properties such as Ceramide and Hyaluronic Acid to nourish and brighten skin from within.
The Ceramide + Hyaluronic Acid combination is a huge hit in cosmetic and skincare ingredients because the former maintains skin hydration while the latter creates a moisture barrier for smoother, softer skin. SOUNDS LIKE FOOD FOR THE SKIN! YUMMY!
I just learned what Glutathione is today and it is interesting to know that New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder contains the MOTHER OF ALL ANTI-OXIDANTS. Hahaha.
The good news is that Glutathione is produced naturally by the body. It plays a vital role in detoxifying our cells, removing heavy metals, toxins and free radicals. The bad news is that poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete our Glutathione levels. This depletion can damage our cells and thus affect the quality of our skin.
Therefore, consistent consumption of a product containing Glutathione can improve our Glutathione levels and improve our detoxification system.
New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder also contains Lactobacillus Bacteria aka Probiotics. It is considered beneficial to human health because the bacteria helps the body absorb nutrients and keep a healthy balance of good bacteria. Probiotics are the 'good' strains of gut bacteria that are important to digestive health and our immune system.
Also, the calorie count in each sachet is so low you don't have to worry about tipping the calorie counter in your diet - AT ALL.
Formulated and manufactured in Japan, and radiation-free (in case you are wondering), each serving comes in a convenient sachet that you can add to your favorite beverage or soft foods, like my Bircher Muesli. You can add it to warm - NOT HOT - beverage as we all know that Vitamin C is destroyed at temperatures over 75 degree Celsius, yup?
Just one sachet per day is all that is needed to boost collagen supply for your skin.
For days where I cannot afford the time to idly sit down and have a slow breakfast, instead of munching on unhealthy sugar biscuits or bread coated with Nutella (both my guilty pleasures HAHA), I will pack my overnight oats into a mason jar and bring it to work.
Healthy Breakfast On-The-Go
Top it up with more of your favorite nuts and fresh fruits! I love sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, almond slivers. 🙂
I got my Mason jars from Mason Market, if you're interested to know. They're perfect for anything, from overnight oats to flowers to buttons to hippie hanging lamps.
When I arrive at my workplace, I'll pour my convenient New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder into my convenient Bircher Muesli jar and eat to my heart's content! Convenience is key to busy professionals like myself these days.
You can even use it as a weight to work those muscles before consumption. LOL.
New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen retails for SGD 49.90 at leading supermarkets, pharmacies, and selected departmental stores.
Mystery Product Experiment
What makes the New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder a project close to my heart is my participation in making it awesome. HAHAHA. No la, I didn't 'make' it, but I did contribute in giving my thoughts on the flavor and packaging of the final product, especially for the New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink that was launched in April 2015. More than 200,000 bottles were sold!
Here's with the New Moon experiment team and my beautiful blogger friends - Meiting and Evonne.
OKIE FINALLY I CAN EAT!
You know that agony of placing a spoonful of my favorite food near my mouth to pose and not eat in case I ruin my makeup and lipstick? >_<" HAHAHA!!
Now go get yourself a box of New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder for better immune system and inner radiance!
All the best! 😀
