Mornings can be rough. Trust me, I know…
You’re tired and groggy and you don’t want to get up and make yourself a healthy, time-consuming breakfast. So you reach for the box of cereal. Pour a little milk on, and bam! You’ve got a breakfast. But there is a little voice in the back of your head who is calling out to you. It’s been nagging at you, but you’ve just ignored it.
It says, “What are you doing, eating this store-bought cereal junk?! You know better than that! You know that it will only give you a sugar rush, and won’t keep you full for more than an hour! Eat something healthier!”
We’ve alllll been there and we have all heard that little voice inside our heads! But we can ignore that voice no longer. We must listen to that voice, and respond,
“How about we make a compromise: I will eat a nutritious breakfast, but it will not be hard to make, or labor-intensive.”
“Sounds like a great idea, friend!” cries the voice, “But what in the world are you going to make?”
“Grain-free Superfood Granola, of course!” you respond with delight. And you immediately begin you make your granola. Within five minutes the granola is headed for the oven, and in only ten more, it’s done! You pour the whole batch into a bowl (because it’s that good) and drown it in some almond milk. Then you munch, munch, much, until it’s all gone. Boy, was that delicious! You’re so pleasantly full! The little voice inside your head exclaims,
“Good job! I am proud of you! You have eaten a nutritious and delicious meal that will make your body strong. What a great way to start your day!” And you smile, because you feel great and you just had the best meal of your life.
The granola is perfect on smoothie bowls. Look at this one I made! Recipe on Instagram, here!
