Raw Chia Superfood Cereal


Chia Seed Superfood Granola 01

I’ve been looking for a low calorie, low sugar granola. Turns out those are hard to find.

You know what they say, if you want something done right you need to do it yourself.

Well, ok…maybe that’s not entirely true. I did find one brand that I loved, but it was a bit pricey for me to buy regularly. I decided to make it myself. Turns out it was ridiculously easy.

No baking. No crazy ingredients.

Just stirring all that superfood goodness.

Chia Superfood Granola Ingredients

Chia Superfood Granola

  1. 1/2 cup organic buckwheat grouts
  2. 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  3. 1/4 cup chia seeds
  4. 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  5. 1/4 cup hemp hearts

Nutritional Info (per 2 tbsp):  Calories: 70, Fat: 3.5g, Carbs: 8g, Fibre: 2.5g, Protein: 3g

Is it ridiculous to just say that the instructions are…like…just mix.

Well, that was hard.

Chia Seed Superfood Granola 02

Just kidding.

So to eat this divine bunch of love…you take 2 tbsp. of cereal and mix it with about 1/2 cup of almond milk  and let it sit a couple minutes.

Sounds meager, but the chia seeds expand and make it into a delicious, wholesome breakfast. And you can always have second helpings!

Chia seed fan, yay or nay?

Fall is Here


For some reason, I was surprised when I glanced at my agenda yesterday. On the page at the top of September 23, in small letters, was written First Day of Fall.


Not sure when that happened. I guess those crisp early mornings were a good cue.

Garden at Home

I wasn’t prepared to say goodbye to this beauty…green grass, warm summer evenings, sundresses, no jackets….

I was ready to frantically tape the leaves back on the trees and rip those long scarves off those eager freshmen as they walked past my house.

Then I sipped at melting whipped cream, topped with grains of grey salt on hot mocha and decided to wholeheartedly welcome the leaves, the scarves, and the cold mornings. Those Starbuck drinks though.

Scarfs are for Fall

There’s also running…I do love those afternoon jogs where it’s the perfect workout temperature. And the crunch of those leaves as you walk…

Craving hot teas and coffees in the morning…and in the afternoon….and a night. There’s no shame. I’m a happy addict and there’s nothing cozier.

I welcome the tall boots and warm leggings. I also hope that this doesn’t happen again.

Mismatching Boots - so yahhh

Some days I wish that someone could give me the “ok” before I leave the house. Might be a good idea. I wondered why my feet felt funny that day. Anyway…


Sunset to Summer

I think it makes sense for it to be fall. I feel like there’s a lot of changes around the corner, a hint of excitement that came with that cool, edgy breeze. It’s like a change in rhythm…and I’m looking forward to seeing what that looks like.

Are you having trouble saying goodbye to summer? What are you most looking forward to about fall?
