No Ordinary Granola

quinoa-granola-apricot-cranberry-raisin-almondI wanted to switch it up from having smoothies for breakfast everyday and because processed cereals are out the door (for obvious reasons!) during my cleanse, I wanted to make granola. I’ve seen tons of recipes when I browse my foodgawker app, and it made me realize that making granola is a relatively easy process! Like I said before, there are tons of recipes out there on how to make granola, what ingredients to add.

Happy New Year 2013!

I cannot believe I am sitting here welcoming in another year. New beginnings, new everything. 2012 was one hell of a ride for me…a lot of ups, a lot of middle, and a lot of downs. I’m excited for what the new year has to offer me!

As you know, I am trying to recover from the flu, and so far, for the past week, it’s been kicking my butt. I was supposed to start off today by starting a 21 day cleanse from processed foods, but right now, that’s going to be pushed back till my immune system isn’t fighting so hard. I’m so so so tired, and all my body wants to do is sleep, while my mind is so over it! Ahhh

Once I am back to normal, I am going to start the healthy, non-processed food cleanse. You could call it a food-challenge for better eating, eating more vegetables and whatever comes out of the ground. It’s incredibly scary to read labels at the grocery store and not know what half the ingredients are!

I’m looking for recipes that are simple to prepare but hearty and delicious; recipes that have no processed products, no dairy products, no refined sugars, no meats. So, in a nutshell, going back to basics…have you ever done anything like this before? I would love to hear your suggestions & recommendations on recipes.
