Granola

Here is a recipe I love for a no-added-fat granola. It is adapted from a recipe in John Robbins’ Diet for a New World. It does have nuts and sunflower seeds, which you could reduce, eliminate, or change, if you wish.

Spring Sunshine Breakfast Couscous

NOTES: This recipe is extremely low fat – couscous itself contains almost no fat and no saturated fat so the only fat comes from the soymilk. To make this recipe completely fat free, soymilk can be replaced with apple juice, however, this reduces the other nutrients etc like calcium.

    • “Found” Fig Compote (And A New Tree of Knowledge)
      I have always been a fan of “found” poetry–that is, wording that inadvertently reads with the resonating “both/and” complexity of  a written poem. Perhaps my favorite all-time found poem came from a documentary about the animals in Madagascar I saw decades ago. I still remember it (or I think I do): The lemurs escape the […]
