Still on my quest for making small substitutions and additions to what my family eats to try and pump a little bit more good stuff into me and them. I sprinkle Flax seed meal on just about everything. Luka's cinnamon toast especially. SHHH! I secretly dump a jar of pureed sweet potatoes into my spaghetti sauces. And I just learned about leaner cuts of beef last week with some other Texas Mom Bloggers. (That tale will be coming up hopefully in video next week.) You saw my fabulous salad I made earlier today too, right?)
Now for breakfast. I have been know to often drive over to Vera's Panaderia for some delish Mexican pastries, who's names I cannot pronounce or remember. When it comes to nutrition, not the best choice I am told. So in my search for a more Pyramid fulfilling breakfast, I've been eating Galaxy Granola. With a handful of strawberries (for increased cognitive ability, cuz who doesn't need some of that). Why this particular granola?
Galaxy Granola is baked using applesauce intead of any oils. So it is 70% less fat than your typical granola (like Bear Naked or Nature's Path). You should be able to find it at Whole Foods and Safeway stores. And can I say it tastes awesome? It does! Everyone can sign up to win a free sample and a coupon here. They give away 1000 samples several times a month. Your name stays in the "pot" until you win. Sweet. They've even got recipes here. "Like" 'em on Facebook here. And, follow them on twitter here.
Two of you can win a whole bag ($5.49 value) of Galaxy Granola! Just leave your name and email in a comment below and tell me what looks like your favorite flavor of Galaxy Granola!
