Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

What do you get when you make homemade granola using all raw ingredients?

Rawnola!

While the texture is slightly more chewy than traditional homemade granola which is baked in an oven, the taste is equally as delicious. I love making rawnola because it is extremely versatile. You can use it any way you would with granola – add it to smoothie bowls ( such as the ones we made yesterday ), chia pudding, on it’s own with some almond milk, or just eat it straight out of the jar!

Guilt-free goodness in a glass

spinach popeye

There are many good things to be known about spinach apart from the famous boost of strength that the pipe-smoking sailor-man Popeye used to take from it when faced with trouble.

PROTEIN Vs. CARBS…. And the winner is…

Protein Vs Carbs diets

There was a study done to 811 overweight persons who were to follow one of the four following diets:

1. 40% fat, 25% protein, 35% carbohydrates
2. 40% fat, 15% protein, 45% carbohydrates
3. 20% fat, 15% protein, 65% carbohydrates
4. 20% fat, 25% protein, 55% carbohydrates

And the winner is… CALORIES!

Yes, at the end of a two-year period of the study all the four groups lost an average of almost nine pounds. Participants all reported similar hunger and satiety no matter which diet they were on. Therefore it is more important according to this study to focus on caloric intake…. It is even easier taking care of one thing instead of three. Even though, a balanced diet is recommended for the right micronutrient intake and well functioning of your body.
