The Granola Lifestyle has taken on a whole new meaning. No longer does it mean a healthy granola bar, but instead, the healthy eating of granola cereal, granola nuts, and granola bars consumed in between meals. It is a way of life, not just for children but for adults as well. The granola lifestyle encourages you to eat outside, be active, and get out in the sunshine.
We were all taught that eggs are bad for us. It was just taught occasionally during our history lessons, that they are bad. We were told to stay away from them. Now we know that eggs are good for us. Now it seems like the granola lifestyle would have to recommend the same thing, too.
Many people are catching on to the fact that the granola lifestyle might include, water bottle, yogurt, and granola bars as snacks. They are enjoying the taste and the simplicity of making their own snack bars at home. There is something outdoorsy about the combination of granola seeds with some water bottle or other cool substance to keep their energy up through the day. Water bottle caffeine is bad for your body, but if you drink a small amount every day, it is probably good for you. Even if you are not a coffee or tea drinker, a small glass of water is better than drinking coffee all day long.
The granola lifestyle is starting to catch on with people who want to live a simple, outdoorsy life. They wear chacos, they wear their own clothes, and they eat granola. It is a great alternative to the diet, although I suspect that water bottle caffeine and hippie T-shirts would still make people turn their nose up at the idea. But in the days of convenience, it seems like it would be easy to get going with the granola lifestyle.
One thing that has to be said about the hippie part of the granola lifestyle is that people need to get their priorities in order. The earth is suffering under huge drought conditions, so it is important to recycle. Everyone needs to help out, whether it is helping dig up old chavarria or watering new plants. But if you are thinking only of yourself, you may have a hard time going back to living “normally”. As the old saying goes, “if you love yourself you will tend to love others too”.
It is hard not to feel like you are on the cutting edge of things when it comes to the hippie lifestyle. I think that many of us feel this way when we are first learning about something, and I can't say I didn't experience this when I was first trying to eat chavarria for the first time. It was delicious and yet it tasted so much like chocolate. Even though I was introduced to the granola girl during my free time at college, it took me a few years to get really into the idea of recycling and saving the world. This is why I think the granola hippie diet is one of the best things to come down the pike in some time. And if you are the type of person who tends to spend a lot of time outdoors, you could definitely relate.
A lot of people also associate the granola lifestyle with things like hemp oil, peace signs, and other things that are related to the pure pleasure of life. Some of the best things about this lifestyle include chavarria, which is an open-sourced bread made from yeast extracts. You can make it from scratch or buy pre-packaged varieties at your local health food store, and while you are indulging in the open-sourced life style, you can also enjoy making your own artisanal granola bread. Many local bakeries sell fresh batches of pure, organic bread that is full of flavor.
What I love most about the lifestyle is the sense of purpose that you get out of it. You might be thinking that your purpose in life is to have children, or you might be thinking about just surviving in a world where money has gotten the best of you. You might even be an outdoorsy type, interested in trying to live a more simple life without sacrificing anything to the modern lifestyle. If you are anything like me, then your mission statement might be very similar to mine, but what is also nice about the granola lifestyle is that you can do it all in the open air, or as I like to call it: outside the comforts of my house!
