Get Up Granola


·         1 1/2 cups rolled oats

·         1/2 cup peanuts, roasted

·         1/2 cup almonds, blanched

·         1/2 cup chopped walnuts

·         1/2 cup sweetened coconut

·         2 tablespoons brown sugar

·         2 tablespoons molasses

·         3 tablespoons peanut oil

·         1/2 cup raisins

·         1/2 cup coarsely crushed graham crackers

·         1 pint blueberries

·         1 quart vanilla yogurt


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Lightly grease a half sheet tray lined with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, peanuts, almonds, walnuts, coconut and brown sugar. Mix well. Add the molasses and peanut oil. Toss well until all ingredients are evenly dispersed and coated. Spread the granola out evenly on the sheet tray. Bake in the oven for 60 minutes, stirring occasionally to achieve even color.

Remove from the oven and transfer to a large bowl. Fold in raisins and graham crackers. Stir the blueberries into the yogurt in a small bowl. Spoon the yogurt into serving glasses or bowls and top with graham cracker granola.

You do not have weird eating penratts…maybe unusual ones. Eating 11 times a day, even if you do not eat too many calories and you eat healthy must be time consuming and somehow bothersome. I can do all my errands and my shopping, be out of the house for 5 hours without having to worry about having to eat anything. And then cook for an hour before I eat. I enjoy the time about one hour after a meal (when you can go swimming) when your stomach is done digesting the previous meal, and you’re not supposed to be hungry for several hours. In your case, I guess you must be hungry, if you eat so often. It is believed that eating a lot of smaller meals instead of bigger fewer ones would burn more calories but I think that you should not eat more often just in an attempt to burn more calories. Using food to lose weight is never a good idea. Snacking between meals is fine. If you’re okay with the way you eat, then you’re fine. If you’d like to eat less often, you could eat more fibers (like your sandwich should have 100% whole wheat bread) so you’d be hungry less often. I never eat a meal with a desert, because I get full before I get to the desert…so I eat the desert a couple of hours later and I’m fine with this. Some people can eat an appetizer, a meal, some cheese and a desert; in half an hour…others need several hours to eat all of those so they have to eat four times instead of just once.
