I was snacking on a bag of granola the other day. It was good. Too good. I flipped to the back of the package and examined the ingredient list, finding that, essentially, I was eating candy. Sure, there were some stray nuts and berries, but not enough to escape the heavy sugar coating and chemical preservatives.
When I give in to pizza, it’s clear that I’m not eating a nourishing meal. I’ve made peace with it. It’s a shame, though, when something unhealthy is disguised in packaging that promotes a wholesome product when, in fact, it’s not. Particularly when it’s something like granola, which should and so easily could be a nutritious snack.
This recipe is my proactive response. Put that in your yogurt and eat it.
