Granola is one of my favourite breakfasts, I don't like traditional muesli but I do love granola (toasted muesli). What better way to start a special pampering Mother's Day than to have a tasty and healthy breakfast laid out on the table awaiting the arrival of my mum. With a large packet of Lizi's Organic Granola waiting to be opened, accompanied by a large bowl of fresh fruit and some organic natural yogurt, breakfast was served. A few pots of carefully dug up Crocuses and Snowdrops from the garden helped to bring the feel of Spring to the breakfast table.
Granola makes a excellent breakfast, and Liz's granola is specially formulated to have a low GL (glycaemic load), which to the likes of you and me basically means the energy is released slowly, keeping your tummy feeling fuller for longer. It also contains flaked almonds and) for a touch of luxury. The Organic Granola contains a wonderful array of jumbo rolled oats, Rapeseed oil, Agave syrup, chopped nuts - hazelnuts, pistachio (my favourite!), desiccated coconut, pumpkin seeds (yum), concentrated apple juice, black treacle, flaked almonds, golden linseeds and sunflower seeds. All is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
A 500gr bag of Lizi's organic granola retails for £4.99, which I think is well priced for Organic granola - you get what you pay for, look for cheaper and you will be disappointed I know from past experience with granola. The bag is resealable, so no need to decant the contents into a container to keep it fresh, which also makes for easy storage. This granola not only tastes good but is good for you, both your physical health and lifestyle. Why is it good for your lifestyle - well because Lizi's organic granola supports organic farmers, both in the UK and in Mexico and the lorries shipping the granola around the UK run on natural gas.
I have also spotted a bag of Belgian Chocolate Granola on Lizi'z website, which sounds like a really treat! In the meantime I will continue to happily munch my way through granola, yogurt and fruit for breakfast.
It may have been Mother's Day on Sunday but that does not mean I could leave my dad having breakfast on his own. Surprisingly to me this was the first time my dad had ever had granola, yogurt and fruit for breakfast, but I think it certainly will not be the last.
I was sent a packet of Lizi's Organic Granola for the purposes of review, all opinions are my own.
