Are you planning any vacations this summer? Stay-cations? It doesn't matter how far you're going, or how you're getting there, you're going to need a snack. Something to take the edge off of your hunger as you travel from point A to point B. Rather than pick up a sweet, calorie-filled nutrition bar at the gas station or magazine counter at the airport, toss a baggie of this great granola in your bag.
Way back when, I learned a little rhyme in Girl Scouts for packing a lunch . It goes something like this...
Something munchy, something crunchy, something juicy, something sweet.
Nothing gooey, nothing drippy, nothing sticky, nothing soggy.
It might be corny, but it's true. There's nothing worse than a big spot on the front of your shirt as arrive at your destination.
As you know, we've undergone some big dietary changes around our house. Gary's doing great, and has become the salad king. In a never-ending effort to find good food and keep control of the fat and sugar we were looking for a healthy granola recipe. This recipe comes from our friend who's been making it for a long time. She's tweaked the original in volume and fat. I ran the nutritional data on the recipe, and 1/4 cup (about 30 gm) is about 120 calories and about 20gm of carbohydrate. Perfect for topping some yogurt or nibbling with the piece of fruit.
