It’s a rainy day today, and the truth of the matter is we’re being a little lazy. My husband told me yesterday to “take some PTO”, which really never occurs to me, but I thought I’d try it. Obviously, my staff is already indulging themselves in some time off 😉
Mix it all together, and then cover a glass pan with wax paper and pour the mixture in, patting down hard so that everything packs together and starts to congeal as it cools. When it has cooled down you can cut it into little squares and voila, you have a homemade granola bar-type snack with no additives, artificial sweeteners, or chemicals. Just good and basic things we all need in our diet but sometimes don’t know how to add.
I like to eat mine with a cup of milk (I added some nutmeg to my milk in the photo) I’m trying to reaffirm my mission to eat more healthfully and naturally. We just signed up to join a food co-op and I’ve been reading up on new vegetarian meals to incorporate into our routine and getting more fruits and greens into the things we eat. I don’t like the idea of taking things away, but rather adding better stuff in what we’re eating daily. And the more local you can buy your food, the more you’re supporting your own community. That is, after all, how they did things in ‘the olden days.’ And I think this may be one way of doing things where the old way was, in fact, better.
