I struggle finding the right thing to eat in the morning, especially when I'm in a hurry. I'm full of good ideas and I have organic food and a well-stocked fridge, but my stomach can be finicky in the a.m. I've learned that too rich or too sweet foods don't work for me. I often eat half of something and finish the rest an hour or so later at work. For a time I ate wheat-free, and some of that habit remains. So when Honey came home with Galaxy Granola the first time I was excited to try it when I saw their tag line: "fruit not fat." It's not that I look for low or non-fat everything, but the level of fat in most store-bought granolas is what makes them too rich for my morning stomach.
Not Sweet Vanilla, the flavor pictured at left, is my flavor of choice. Easy to pack and transport, I add coconut milk later and yum yum thank you very much. Please note this particular product contains wheat.
The company is in San Rafael, California, practically next door to me, which somehow adds to the feel-good factor. You can check the product out yourself at galaxygranola.com. They also invite fans to check out recipes and ideas at fruitnotfat.com, where you can also submit your own tasty concoctions.
Steel cut oats with walnuts and golden raisins; one scrambled egg divided between two rolled-up corn tortillas with salsa and a sprinkle of cheese; wheat-free waffle with PB&J—so glad I've got my Galaxy Granola to add into the breakfast mix.
