Homemade granola

For a nutritious and healthy breakfast, there’s nothing like starting the day with some awesome homemade granola.

In fact, this recipe is super versatile, as you can replace all the ingredients for others more to your liking. For example, instead of oat flakes, you can use rice flakes, quinoa pops, barley flakes, or similar ones.

There is also a huge variety of nuts and seeds, so buy those that give you the most pleasure or that are recommended by your nutritionist. You can even have some dried fruit trees around the house, in which case the cost can go down substantially.
Soulmia New Arrivals   In my case, I went to the weekly market here in the countryside and bought my dried fruits and seeds at Granel da Carlota, it has a wonderful selection of products, there is no packaging here that, every now and then, tastes rancid and who knows where they’ve been, as their suppliers are handpicked.   Ah, at Granel da Carlota you’ll also find teas made to your own needs. You buy the ideal quantity for you at a much more reasonable price than those supermarket packs. This to say: go to your local market and find that supplier that has a great quality-price rate!  
And why? (I’m going to stray from our homemade granola for a minute because I think everyone who likes good tea should be aware of this!)

What You Should Know About TEA!

  Most of the time, tea bags contain tea powder and smaller pieces of tea. In general, these are low-quality teas, machine-picked and mixed with unhealthy, low-quality teas.   So, if you do buy tea bags, make sure the bag leaves are selectively handpicked, grown in an unpolluted place, and not mixed with low-quality teas. It’s the only way to guarantee that the teabag is not of questionable quality.  
Although, the best thing is to buy tea in bulk that comes from the noble part of the original plant!
