I’ve always known granola was very healthy, and often have been told that it can go “to the thighs”. After my first bowl I wanted more and from then on just started filling the bowl up routinely adding a handful of raisins and almonds doused in light plain yogurt.
This healthy joy went on for ages – bringing a smile of satisfaction to my day – until one day I decided to read the small print. I assumed it maybe close to 500 – I mean it’s only cereal, right. HOLY Granola – 1500 calories (big bowl) I’ve been smiling down my throat all this time! Thinking it was okay, I’ve been woofing down far more than I can manage and now I’ve stopped buying that product, I’m fanatically applying the small print and aggressively cutting back staring at my navel.
