Happy short week you guys! Yahh I love these sort of weeks. However, it is going to be a very busy Granola Girl week even though it is short. Thursday, we will be having a table at the Irving Energy Health and Wellness Fair so if you are an Irving employee, please be sure to come out and support us! We will also be featured our new granola bar we just came out with along with our original.
My weekend was nice. We had a house guest as you can see below. It is so funny, because Bella and Lady get along so well. As I had mentioned before, Lady is my mom's dog and whenever she needs us to, we doggie sit. She is a nice little buddy to have around. Especially the days when Sean is working, so I have someone to take around with me. Actually, Lady and I both went to the Kingston Market on Saturday morning. It was nice to get there for the first time this season. Granola Girls will be there in June!!! :) Until then, we are waiting for the weather to warm up lol.
Lately, I have been in such an experimental breakfast mood. It's great trying out new things. Last week, I went to Costco to look around and see what organic foods they have. I read alot of blogs, a lot of American blogs at that. And I get so jealous seeing them buy tons of organic fruits, veggies, products, etc from Costco. Truthfully, we don't even have half of what the American costco's carry for organic products. Which is upsetting. So, I tried to do my part. I went to the customer service desk and put in a request and left my number in case they had questions regarding more details. I haven't received a call yet :( But hopefully soon we! But in the meantime, I did find a few things I didn't know was there. A huge container of all natural organic peanut butter as well as an organic cereal. It is called Nature's Path Heritage Ancient Grains Almond Granola Cereal and it consists of kamut khorasan wheat, spelt, quinoa and amaranth. For a box of 2 bags inside, it only cost $6.99. I have been addicted to it this week and I add a tbsp of Chia seeds, sliced strawberries and organic almond milk.
Can you see the chia seeds floating in there? I love chia seeds... and did you know in just 1 tbsp there is a whopping 5g of fiber!!! Wow, what a powerful little seed. And I am still staying away from meat and dairy these days, hence the almond milk. Truthfully, I don't taste much of a difference and with the great taste of the cereal and strawberries, it makes the perfect combination. If you do want to try an almond milk, it is best to stick with the unsweetened original variety.
Well, have a great Tuesday! I will be back this week with a new recipe to share.
Oh and I was very glad to see how much you guys enjoyed my beauty products post :)
I am going to cuddle with Sean and watch The Bachelorette!!
Lots of Love,
