If this blog doesn't persuade you to go Paleo, I've lost all hope. And if you still aren't convinced, I will help you become a badass chef with my non-paleo recipes and cooking tips
Breakfast is my favorite meal. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, French toast, and did I mention bacon? I swear by this meal. If it’s not consumed right when I wake up, my day feels pointless. But there are some foods that are considered breakfast foods that I just never want to eat because they don’t intrigue me: muffins, bagels, yogurt, cereal, toast, and granola.
Here’s my reasoning. Muffins are full of sugar, bagels are delicious but only back home in New York/New Jersey, so I don’t even bother trying to find a good one, yogurt is just bland and dairy hurts my stomach, cereal is packed full of sugar, preservatives, and no health benefit whatsoever, toast, especially white toast is all sugar that will eventually turn into fat, and unless it’s homemade bread, which it usually isn’t, it resembles cardboard, and granola, well, it’s just a “healthier” version of cereal and quite expensive if I do say so myself.
But I gave myself a challenge (since I’m currently unemployed and have been spending way too much time in my kitchen), that I would make a more delicious and Paleo version of one of these, and since my view on granola is quite horrible, I decided to try and change that. And By Golly! Let me just say, that this granola is ADDICTING. Inspired by paleocupboard, I changed it around a little bit but the premise is all her! So thank god she exists. Be sure to check out her blog as well! www.paleocupboard.com (credit where it’s due of course!)
What you will need:
The best thing about granola and making your own is that you can add whatever your heart desires because there is no right or wrong way to make it. Whether you are paleo or not, add chocolate, craisins, peanuts, or toffee. Add brewed coffee, cocoa powder, or cinnamon. Experiment! I know I will be!
Isn’t that what cooking is all about!?
