Welcome to the Granola Diaries!
This blog is intended to share delicious and nourishing recipes, showing you that any recipe can be made HEALTHY.
I have 3 main criteria for any of my recipes:
- Must be nourishing
(defn: “containing substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition.”)
- Must be easy to make/bake.
All about minimal ingredients, almost always 1 bowl, and no fancy equipment needed.
- Must be (relatively) inexpensive.
None of the fancy niche wellness stuff. Simple, plain, REAL ingredients.
I believe that preventative medicine starts with what we put in our bodies. So many health conditions are brought on by poor diet, or by stress, which could have been caused by poor diet. Every time you eat is a chance to NOURISH your body, with micronutrients, vitamins, minerals, protein, carbs, etc.
I believe if you want a cookie, you should have a cookie. But if you have the option between a cookie void of ANY nutrition, versus a cookie that is also rich in zinc, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants, why not go for the latter? Your body (and you!) will thank you.
We must think of food as FUEL and NOURISHMENT.
The Granola Diaries is here to provide you with recipes and meal ideas that nourish your body, are easy to make, and are actually delicious!
