Hi there, everyone! I received such positive responses from my last post about living in the now rather than thinking about the past and anticipating the future. It seems that we all tend to think about situations and things from our past that could have happened but didn’t. It’s sometimes tough to move forward, but if you want it bad enough, you definitely can!
Onto a few other things–before I get into my product review and give away, I wanted to let you all know really quick that a friend of mine named Stavros is currently working for the Steve Harvey show, which is coming out in September. One of the shows is going to have a segment about weight loss and trying to help certain people lose weight in a healthy way. If you are interested or you know of anyone who may be interested in being considered for the show, please email Stavros at firstname.lastname@example.org
Onto the review! A couple weeks ago, the awesome peeps at Cascadian Farm sent me their new Ancient Grains granola to review. I absolutely love Cascadian Farm products so I knew that I was in a treat to try this new stuff!
Anndddd let me just skip straight to the verdict; I love this stuff! What I really enjoyed was that the granola is actually packed with really great nutrients, including spelt, quinoa, and and kamut while also being tasty. Taste + health? Score! The calorie stats are pretty good, too. Only 220 calories for a cup of the granola which also has 5 grams of protein and only 9 grams of sugar. Good looks!
I enjoyed mine in greek yogurt:
And all by itself:
