Since it was 4th of July almost a week ago, I wanted to make something red, white and blue.. So I decided to make a healthy parfait using my granola.
All you need is
Non-fat Greek yogurt (or regular)
Granola (I used this Recipe)
I used frozen strawberries and thawed it for 20 seconds in the microwave.
Quantities vary depending on how much you want to add. I put it in the freezer for about 15 min.
Happy July! Rosene :)

So one weekend i decided to go to my favorite vegan place, and try the collard wrap. I noticed I was chowing on weird green strings. I then found out that these wormy and earthy tasting things are called alfalfa sprout.At first I didn't like how they tasted and I hated the texture. But just like anything new i try, I hate at first then I end up addicted to it. I stared to buy it from whole foods or the health store and it was quite pricey. So I decided to grow them.
After the seeds have soaked for 12 hours drain the water by simply turning the jar over and allowing the water to drain through the gauze. make sure that all the water is out.
Alfalfa sprout is high in protein and full of vitaminsHappy growing
