This Grain Free Fig & Vanilla Granola fills the house with the most heavenly scent! I could make it everyday, just for that smell. It is super easy to make, only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time and it is full of fabulous nutrition and taste.
I have many parents coming into the community who's kids are new to the whole foods world. That is why many of the recipes I create err on the sweeter side. Making these homemade-whole food and gut healthy versions of processed foods a little on the sweeter side at first tends to make for an easier transition. Once your taste buds are adjusted you can begin cutting back on the sweetener. This recipe calls for 1/3 cup of honey. You could use half of that amount and still get a great result.
This week on my Weekly Round Up we are talking Trans Fats. Thought that one was over and done with didn’t you? Everyone knows that trans fats are bad, so why should you want to read any more about that passé subject?
Did you know there is such thing as naturally occurring trans fats?
Yup, that’s right trans fats are not just un-natural, man made concoctions made in a lab and passed off as food! Here is an even bigger surprise…some of them might be good for our kid’s health. They support intestinal health, improve inflammation, help regulate blood sugar and lots of other good stuff that we want happening when we are trying to improve our children’s health!
But, of course the source of those trans-fats is everything!
