Be honest, have you ever heard of muesli? I’ll go first, I had not! I only heard about it when I came across the brand Seven Sundays.
I am not being paid to write this review nor are there any affiliate links. We connected and they offered to send some samples and I wanted to write a review for them. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
Let’s go over what muesli actually is.
Created in the 20th century muesli is, “a breakfast dish based on raw rolled oats and other ingredients like grains, fresh or dried fruits, and seeds and nuts that may be mixed with dairy or plant milks, yogurt, or fruit juice.” If you want to read the full description and why Seven Sundays’ story is rooted in muesli, click here.
I fell for Seven Sundays when I read their origin story. When I’m seeking out a brand and buying something new I want to know more about their brand. Sure, I look at nutrition facts but I want to know why I should support this business. The food biz is SO competitive so if you want to branch out and try/support new brands – start by reading their stories!
Their story in a nutshell is to bring the Sunday frame of mind to the everyday and I absolutely LOVE that. Sundays are often a day of rest, whether you’re religious or not. For me, they are when I get my slowest mornings (my fave). A slow morning to me is wearing my robe and cozy slippers, holding a hot cup of coffee in hand and just taking my sweet time doing anything. Now, muesli is becoming apart of this slow morning tradition!
I actually think this food product can help you get that slow morning feeling throughout your entire week…but it takes work. Often people tell me how rushed they feel in the morning and it’s completely valid! Now that I have an almost ten month old, my weekday mornings are much faster pace. But…can I adjust anything to give myself a tiny bit more time in the morning? Absolutely. Maybe it’s not a full hot breakfast but giving yourself enough time to sit and eat is enough.
I tried the strawberry banana nut, blueberry chia buckwheat and cherry almond vanilla (my fave) flavors. I added them to yogurt, topped them with milk/almond milk, and sprinkled them on pancakes. I enjoyed them the most with the milk, a drizzle of honey and some blueberries. Their granolas are very low in added sugar which is also not something you come across too often!
If you give them a try, let me know! They also have sunflower cereal that’s in my shopping cart ready for check out soon!
