Let Us Eat Granola

After church, I stopped by Publix to grab a few things I needed for the dish I was making.

And I made sure to grab a couple of things for homemade granola too!

Now…can I just move on to the recipes? I really want to share ASAP because these two things are A HIT to my taste buds! Boy, oh, boy!

Let’s start with the granola first, I’ll put up the other recipe tomorrow morning!! I tried to follow Elise’s recipe on her blog and thanks to the 365 Fit Club for sending it to me last night!

Quinoa Granola

  • 1 cup thick rolled oats
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup almond slivers
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp. cup organic butter, melted (I used Whole Foods’ brand)
  • 1/4 cup organic honey (or could use maple syrup)

 

Directions:

  • Combine oats, uncooked quinoa, raisins, almonds, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Separately, combine the egg white, melted butter, and honey in a bowl. After mixing both separately, then mix together until everything is coated with the wet ingredients.

“This entire batch of granola has 54.6 grams of protein”

Now, I ate mine with plain-nonfat Greek Yogurt and Stevia…but you see, I didn’t take a picture because I didn’t feel like waiting.

“*high protein *gluten free *vegan (if eggs omitted)”

But the combo was good. It would also be good with your cereal, or AS YOUR cereal with almond milk. OOH yummay!

Or, you could make this a topping for some muffins or a bread loaf.

Or you could just eat it with your hands because that’s cool too.

One More Day

Good morning everyone!

I seriously can not believe that Spring Break is over. Not cool, man, not cool.

Today is the last day I have and then its back to the learning. Nope, I am not cheerful.

Oh, by the way, I’m pretty sore from yesterday’s workout.

Give it a try, if you haven’t!

Dinner

Lastnight was possibly the best dinner ever. Okay, not reallyyyy, but oh my goodness, it was delicious, thanks to Costco.

We picked up these Thai cabbage, chicken, and almond wraps and they were delicious. You might have seen it on my Instagram last night (which you can follow me over to the right on the sidebar!!! Yay!)

We served ours along with Asparagus sautéed in coconut oil! Plate
