In an effort to eat healthier, I recently decided to start making my own granola. Many years ago I was addicted to a certain store bought version which I used to inhale straight from the box, under the false assumption that it was good for me. As I slowly started gaining weight, I checked the ingredient list and realized that the percentage of sugar was so high that I probably would have been better off eating a Mars Bar. My home made granola contains no sugar - just oats, fruit, nuts, seeds and a healthy dose of maple syrup and coconut oil. Paired with Greek yogurt and topped with fresh strawberries, there's no better way to energize your day.
In 2008 I co-founded the rescue group, Animal Advocates of North Texas (AANT) to help lost and abandoned animals find forever homes. My blog will regularly feature cats and dogs who are looking for homes and I would be delighted if you would share them with friends and family who might be considering adopting.
While animal rescue and photography are my main passions, I also enjoy creating chaos in the kitchen, developing new recipes on a daily basis. I'll be posting some of my culinary creations here and hope you enjoy browsing!
