Grain-Free, Vegan Almond Cherry Granola
I managed to whip up some granola for sustenance over the weekend. I was feeling like an Olympian – you know – fit and strong and tough, so I thought a grain-free, vegan granola would be ideal nutrition for my athletic self….
I mean, I have really been consumed by the Olympics.
After I get the kids in bed, I plop down on the couch to catch up on what’s happening in the events and who’s winning all the medals and what Johnny Weir is wearing. And then it’s 10:00 and I’m tired. But, I can’t get enough!
Last night I watched the Women’s Downhill and I’m absolutely in awe of these ladies. They barrel down the hill at 70 miles per hour with nothing but a pair of skis between their able bodies and certain death. I don’t even like to drive 70 miles per hour. It’s amazing. And yet, I can barely watch for fear that I’ll witness a fall so horrid I’ll have nightmares for the rest of my life.
But, Johnny Weir. I just love him. His wit and character are simply joyful.
Do you have a favorite Olympic event? I’m partial to Ice Skating, but all the events are fun to watch – even curling.
And you can enjoy this granola while watching what’s left of the Winter Olympics. It’s awesome all by itself, with yogurt, on top of oatmeal, mixed with berries. Let me know if you find another use for it, too!
