"It's really neat being able to diversify your workouts. Also, training with the group is a big, big part of what you're doing. If you didn't have the group, it wouldn't be the same."

Spice up your Breakfast!

Granola is a delicious and healthy breakfast when done right.  But sadly, most store bought granolas are often loaded with sugar and fat.  Try out the homemade granola recipe below, using your favorite types of nuts, dried fruit and spices.  Eat along with some non-fat, plain Greek yogurt and you’ve got yourself a breakfast full of fiber and protein that will keep you energized long after your morning workout.

Granola

3 cups oats (old-fashioned oats work best)

1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (I like almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds)

3 Tablespoons ground flaxseed

2 Tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground ginger (also can use allspice or pumpkin pie spice)

Sprinkling of salt

1/4 – 1/3 cup honey

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 cup dried cherries and blueberries (can substitute any type of dried fruit, try to avoid sweetened dried fruit as they might make the final product too sweet)

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 300F° and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.  Combine oats, nuts, flaxseed, brown sugar, cinnamon, ground ginger and salt in a bowl.  Meanwhile, heat honey and olive oil in a small saucepan over low heat until the ingredients combine into one smooth mixture.  Pour honey/olive oil mixture over oat/nut mixture and mix well.  Spread over baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes, stirring mixture every 10 minutes.  Granola mixture will be golden brown when done.  Allow to cool on cookie sheet; stir in dried fruit.  Store in a Tupperware container or a Ziploc bag.
