Granola

You’re probably asking yourself: “What’s a healthy food like granola doing on this blog?”  Well, like everything else it seems, there is good granola and not-so-good granola.

My big peeve with granola is that it is supposed to be healthy, but a quick check of the ingredient labels at the local supermarket shows such evil ingredients as high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oil.  Huh?  So much for healthy.  Nothing worse than eating unhealthy, healthy food.

While both healthy and unhealthy granola can be found in just about every supermarket, there seems to be a high premium put on the healthy variety.  The premium is pretty surprising, considering granola is basically rolled oats, nuts, fruits, a little bit of sugar, and some type of oil to give it the crunch (after baking) that we expect when eating it.
