About Project Granola Mom

I'm super passionate about all things health related and soaking up as much info as I can. I've traded in my personal training liscence for 2 sweet little boys, and am trying to provide the best lifestyle possible for our family. We eat mostly whole foods and I beam with pride that my 3 year old has no clue what an oreo is. Join me on the journey to optimum health for a lifetime!

Grain Mill Wagon Challenge Experience:
I was surprised how much fun I had doing the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge! What I thought would be an interesting experience turned out to be almost an obsession. I ground up everything but the kitchen sink trying new recipes and seeing what the WonderMill could do. I love to cook and bake so it was very natural to be trying new recipes and experimenting. Participating in the challenge always kept grains at the front of my mind so I was always on the lookout for something new to do. This was my first time owning a mill and it made me feel healthier to know my grains were as fresh as they could get. Next I want to start trying sprouting grains and then drying and grinding them. There's really no limit to the new things I can try, and I look forward to continuing the journey!

Homemade Hamburger Buns

A great perk of a BBQ (and maybe the motivation to having one) is that you really don’t have to “cook” right?  So some people might think it is silly to make your own buns.  However, the other night I … Continue reading

Okay, so we know most cake is not healthy for us.  BUT I do allow myself to splurge every now and then.  Yesterday was my birthday, so I had a great excuse to make this lovely gem.  I don’t feel … Continue reading
