Granola is such a simple solution for your breakfast and snacking needs. Instead of spending money on a version from the grocery store, take a little time to make your own healthy version with whatever ingredients you want to include that you enjoy. The recipe provides some ideas on what to include in your homemade granola, but please feel free to experiment and create your own combination!
Is Granola Vegan-Approved?
Shoppers beware! When you go to the grocery store, you will need to double-check the ingredients to make sure the granola you are considering buying is, in fact, 100% vegan. Many granola companies use honey as their primary source of sweetener. Some other store-bought granolas incorporate butter and chocolate chips, which immediately will make a vegan put the granola back onto the shelf. If you want to save time and not have to check the ingredient lists of every single bag of granola at the store, make some homemade granola instead!
What Should I Eat My Granola With To Keep It Healthy?
Making your own granola at home saves you from consuming excessive calories, fat, and sugar. However, if you are still concerned with what would be healthy options to eat your granola with, then consider some of these options:
• Put 1/3 cup of granola in a bowl with a serving of dairy-free milk. Top with fresh fruit, nuts, or seeds.
• Add to a serving of dairy-free yogurt and top with fresh fruit, nuts, or seeds.
• Combine with fresh berries, nuts, and seeds for a healthy and light snack.
Which Is Better For Me: Granola Or Oatmeal?
Both oatmeal and granola can be wonderfully healthy options for breakfast. However, granola tends to be the better of the two. Granola recipes often incorporate nuts, fruits, and seeds, which provide excellent sources of good fats and fiber. However, to ensure the granola is light and healthy, I highly recommend making your own recipe, as store-bought versions are often loaded with excess sugar and calories.
Can Granola Cause Inflammation?
Depending on the ingredients that are incorporated into the granola, yes, it can potentially cause inflammation. Granolas high in sugar are the most likely to give you inflammation. Another ingredient that can cause inflammation is processed oils. So, if you are looking to avoid inflammation, make some homemade granola that you can guarantee does not include ingredients that will make you inflamed.
