Yesterday was another good and busy day (are you tired of me mentioning how busy I am yet? I should wait until September so I can see what busy really means, right?) Thank goodness I’m organized!
Anyways, when I arrived home from the office I saw a brown box at the front door and my heart fluttered with excitement. MAIL! Now, with Hubbs’ job, he gets a lot of packages delivered to the house, but this one looked different. I ran up for a closer look, saw MY name on the address label and a new brand that I’ve been hearing so much about on the outside.
Love Grown! EEE! I squealed out loud and made Koda turn her head, perk up her ears and look at me with that huh? puppy dog face.
Ripping it open I discovered a sweet, handwritten note from Laura, which I thought was a truly lovely touch.
Check out the goods!
If you haven’t heard of Love Grown Granola, check out their website, and let me fill you in. Owners Maddy and Alex met in college and it didn’t take long to combine their love of healthy eating and natural entrepreneurship into what is now Love Grown Foods.
Their ingredient list is all recognizable, nutritious and simple- which I absolutely love.
I was pumped to finally try the delicious flavor I had heard so much about, and decided breakfast would be the perfect opportunity.
Today is a cloudy and calm morning…
but breakfast brought some sunshine into my life!
I whipped up a breakfast parfait with some defrosted organic berries, Chobani 2% mango Greek yogurt, and Love Grown’s Raisin Almond Crunch Granola.
Beautiful, isn’t it? But more importantly, the taste was frickin’ amazing. I pulled out a few of the larger granola pieces to try on their own and WOAH was I impressed.
I first noticed the perfect texture of crunch. Not the –ouch I think I just broke a tooth- kind of crunch, but a natural, hearty –mmm- kind of crunch. The taste is incredible. I loved being able to to taste the real ingredients, not a sugar coating (because there isn’t one!). I savored the juicy raisins, crunchy almonds and the natural sweetness of honey and agave. I loved, seriously LOVED, that it wasn’t overly sweet. Just perfect.
But don’t take my word for it- try it yourself!
I’m going to send one of you a large bag of their Raisin Almond Crunch Granola to try out, along with this… look familiar?
I picked a winner, but after a week of no response from them, I’m picking a new one!

Yu can like me on facebook or follow me on twitter (@AHealthySlice) if you want, too, but it’s not necessary.

Have a GREAT weekend!
