The Anti-granola Granola

Confession: I love health food.

Weird, I know, but I do. It's so good, and so good for you. I know pretty much the whole world is on a "green" trip right now, but I'm not gonna lie - I'm glad. Sure it's a fad and will probably stop in a year or two, but at least it's a fad that's healthy. I think we all remember when McDonald's had those mini Beanie Babies in their Happy Meals, and every elementary school-aged child in America suddenly gained like ten pounds from the mass consumption of fast food. Yeah, that one wasn't so pretty.

I know what you're thinking, "health food is so gross Nicole, how can you eat it?" Oh ye of little faith, for those who think health food is all gross (I say that because let's be honest, some of it is) try these sometime:

Pacific Natural Foods: They have the most AMAZING organic soups, the roasted red pepper & tomato is my favorite. And the best part is that they sell them at Costco and Smith's.

Kashi: I know they're mostly known for their granola, but try the oatmeal. It's soooo good.

Barbara's Bakery Puffins Cereal: The cinnamon flavored kind is the best. And like my roommate says, you can read about how to save Puffins while you eat some breakfast!

Whole Foods: Okay you got me, this is a store... but they have great recipes on their website.

Silk Soy Milk: In all honesty this one wasn't really voluntary because I'm lactose intolerant so I don't drink regular milk anyway. But Soy is good, good for you, and you can use the Plain kind in place of milk in cooking.

Happy healthy eating everyone!

Organic, shmanic. But I do love health food too (as long as it's not twice as much as the other stuff)! But face it, everyone really should love veggies and stuff. & they sure know how to do vegetarian around here. Oh yum! I'm not vegetarian, but it's so yummy i can't pass it up! Seriously--fried tofu in tacos is not as bad as it sounds. In fact it's pretty stupendous.
Should I mention I've started to recycle again too? It just makes me feel warm and fuzzy (and green) just thinking about it.

Again?? I'm sad that you ever stopped recycling! I make my roommates do it, too.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. That's the way to go!
