Granola-itis.

Granola Syndrome.

GDD (Granola Delusional Disorder)


I don't know what I have, but apparently it's contagious.


I was blending smoothies when my husband came home with the following:


  • apples (okay, that's normal... but read on)

  • strawberries (lucky me!)

  • pineapple (yummo... but read on, it get's weirder)

  • dried mango (ya feel me?)

  • vegan, low sodium, no transfat trail mix with dried fruit (yah.)

  • two tire tubes for his bike (which he will be riding to work from now on)

And then he said the following:


"Oh! I forgot the Yogurt!"


We're finally taking a turn for the healthier. My husband recently found out he has really, really, rediculously high blood pressure. He's fit as a fiddle... "has the body of a god" as they say. (I do too... Bhudda.) We've decided to quit complaining and do something about it.


I've been working out 5 days a week, controlling my refined sugar intake... and he's been controlling his sodium intake. I've lost a few pounds... and he's dropped a few points.


So, these granolas might be on to something.


Just hope their fashion-sense isn't contagious too.

I feel you sister! I live near Boulder, remember? lol

We ditched our microwave - haven't missed it. I buy organic when I can afford it, which isn't often. I am addicted to Farmer's Markets, Vitamin Cottage, Whole Foods, and all of those other "granola" stores. However, I still shave my legs and armpits, I wear real leather without guilt (poor cows), and I don't own any tye dye clothing.

Find a balance friend! :) lol
