Granola Hey everyone, it’s Chad herefrom FITera and today I want to talk to you about granola – as it’s always had a reputationfor being a health food… in fact, we get new clients all the time that say they’reeating healthier – such as granola for breakfast instead doughnuts – but still not losing weight… BUTmost store-bought granola is really high in fat, sugar, and calories – and the sourceof fat is usually the kind that’s really bad for your heart, such as hydrogenated oils.
But,if you make your own, it can be loaded with beneficial nutrients that are packed withfiber, vitamins and minerals, and good sources of healthy fat, which can actually improveyour cholesterol and heart health.
So, I’m excited to show you my much healthiergranola recipe, which is 100% FITera approved – meaning it’s:Healthy and effective Quick and easyNo hard to find or expensive ingredients (in fact many of the ingredients you can findin bulk) And absolutely delicious.
