the best damn granola

It was a juice day today!

I woke up and remembered that I had a fridge full of celery, carrots, beets and apples…what better thing to make with those ingredients than a healthy, thirst-quenching juice.

I washed and chopped the ingredients, so that they would fit into my juicer.

Then, juiced away.

I love the color when I add beets.  Beets and celery are a great combination!

I also had some toast with almond butter and jam for breakfast.

A few hours later, I was hungry!  So, I made a few peanut butter crackers to hold me over until lunch.

For lunch, I bought again!  This weekend, it is a priority to hit up the grocery store.  Over the past 2 weeks, I have bought lunch more times than I ever have in the past – oopps! 🙂

A Meditteranean Wrap from Au Bon Pain – lettuce, rpasted red pepper hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes, kalmata olives, sun-dried tomato spread and feta.

It is one of my favorites!  I just love feta!

Along with some watermelon that I packed from home.

My mid-afternoon snack included a new granola!

Cyndi from The Best Damn Granola Co. was gracious enough to give me a bag of her delicious granola to try!

I chose the Fig ‘n Nuts because it is her signature and is so good with the hints of cinnamon and spice.  I could eat this by the handful – and I have!

The ingredients are pretty good and everything is made by Cyndi and her family.  Check out their website for more info!

And, the best part is the chunks of fruit and nuts in each bag.  Mmmmmm……

And, it is super flavorful, but not too sweet.  In fact, it is much more spicey than sweet.

My snack consisted of plain yogurt with the granola.

Delicious!

We are off to the Patriot’s Pre-season game tonight!  Have a good one.
