Bircher Recipe

Calcium

It is easy to increase calcium intake for anyone who loves dairy products; there is such a variety of dairy products on Australian market. And if you are vegan? Or, if you have developed an intolerance to dairy products, then it is more complicated. After reading a few articles on calcium, I made a list of non-diary products that are high in calcium content. Then, I came up with this idea for a dish that is very hard to name. It goes very well with a breakfast, also it is a good healthy snack for the day.

Maximilian Bircher-Benner was a Swiss physician and a pioneer nutritionist who created muesli.
