In other super food concoctions, I baked granola for the first time to celebrate Earth Day (in the most literal earthy/crunchy way) at the office. It turned out well! I tried two recipes, one was made with oats, peanut butter and honey, and the other was a bit more complex and inspired by this recipe with oats, pecans, almonds, chia seeds, honey, olive oil, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. They were so easy to make! Just combine ingredients, even out on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. Artisanal granola in no time.
In other activities this week, I attended my second Nat’s game of the season!
The great groomed outdoors. I also got in a few mid-week runs and a longer, 8 miler just under a 9 minute pace. With the warmer weather I have to remind myself what running in humidity feels like!
