Before the move, I tried Heidi’s Healthy Coconut Oil Granola off the blog LightlyCrunchy. I tweaked the recipe just a pinch as I didn’t have all the ingredients in the house. The original is at the link above. Check out Heidi’s site regardless for a refreshing ride of simple living and quick, kid-friendly recipes.
Made a perfect breakfast alternative! Thanks Heidi!

I’m most surprised by how much packaging we use, especially with food. We compost almost all food waste and paper. We recycle everything else, but the small amount of trash we generate is plastic from packaged foods that cannot be recycled. Not in this area, anyway.
Trash for the week....granola wrapper, cereal liner, dental floss case, bacon packaging
