Dr. Dzharty + granola, Clarins, Clinique, breakfast cereals, meal, good, honey, nuts


After long holidays, accompanied by endless and extremely high-calorie food and a good time to remember about healthy eating. At the same time I would like to not only the food was light and healthy, but also delicious. Everything is in our hands – the important thing is to find recipes for those dishes, which will fall to us to taste, and the figure will not spoil.


We begin, as it should be with proper breakfast. But not with oatmeal, and with her … a distant relative. Granola – a dish of one or more types of cereal flakes, dried fruit or fruit chips, honey, nuts.

Flakes can be baked and fried to a crisp fruit. The great advantage of this dish is not only in charge of energy, which it gives to our body, but also in its diversity. In fact, there is no single granola recipe, but only an indicative list of components, sort of “Irish stew” on a new diet fashion.


Background started either from the American priest Sylvester Graham, who preferred pastries from different grains, including oats from, whether with Dr. John. Jackson Mix oat crackers with other components. Closer to the modern version of granola come up with another doctor – John Kellogg.
He began baked oatmeal with nuts and dried fruits, and guessed not only to patent your product, but also to use it as a healing power. Whatever it was, but to the invention of granola were involved not cook, and people far from the culinary professions, promoting only healthy way of life and adequate nutrition.
Most interesting is that the promotion of granola, as they say “the masses” contributed to the hippie movement. It has become the most convenient food in the road – inexpensive, tasty and not perishable. “Children of the Sun” even released their own granola, supplying bags trademark “Pacifik”.


By the way, if you think of muesli and granola one and the same, then you are wrong. First, it is sure to baked granola and muesli are prepared from raw ingredients, and secondly it is not necessary to fill with milk, yogurt or yogurt, and you can be happy and eat just like that, because it is much sweeter! Of course, the granola can be bought in a store, and a variety of types and varieties of loose, to be formed into bars. But much more interesting to try by all possible options and to find his signature recipe for this useful and tasty dishes. Let’s try!
