Grain Free Granola and Yogurt

Wow, how long has it been...look at the date of my last post.  Time really does move swiftly.  The challenge is always in the management of time and how to marry all the things that I want to do with all of the things that I need to do.  I fall short quite often, but, I have learned to take it all in stride and at the end of the day...It's all right with me.

So, I shall get right to it.  I have been living and loving life since my last post to this blog of mine.  I have lots to share and I have decided that my blog will feature a variety of things that I love.  To begin,  I love food.  Healthy, vibrant, flavorful food...Real food.

I have adopted a whole food/unprocessed food lifestyle.  Other than the blueberries, there is nothing "low fat" in this little glass dish.  There's plenty of "good" fats.  (there was a time when I would have never said that let alone put it in writing).  Although this post features grain free granola, I am limiting (not eliminating) the amount of grains in my diet.  I feel that eating some grains are good for me and I do soak/sprout them prior to cooking or eating.  Here's a favorite afternoon snack.  It keeps me satiated until dinner, and that's a good thing.

What's in it?

Wallaby Whole Milk Vanilla Yogurt
Raw Walnuts (soaked of course)
Larabar Renola (grain free)

I also love pretty china and table settings.  The glass dish is from Home Goods.  The spoon is  Rogers & Son Champagne silver plate.  The quilted table cloth was made by me from various blue and white fabrics found in my stash.  It was a first attempt at playing with my mid arm quilting machine.  More on that later.

Thank you for visiting and reading my first post in a very long time.  It is short and sweet (literally) as I have a bit of updating to do with Thistle Creek Cottage so please do come back to see how it's coming along.
