My family received a tasty treat by post the other day.
Made by my Grandma, who is the best cook.
I love fruitcake. I know not everyone does. But I love the dense, sweet, rich flavor of the dried fruits and crunchy nuts.
Thanks Grandma! 🙂
My Grandma is also really into health foods and alternative medicine, which I think is AWESOME. She focuses on eating raw foods, has acupuncture treatments, and generally just approaches health in a holistic way. I love it. I think we can all get really wrapped up in fixing problems once they occur, with medicine or other treatments and forget about giving our bodies good things to help prevent problems. Don’t get me wrong, I believe medicine has its place in our health, but I am increasingly interested in how healthy food, exercise, supplements and naturopathic medicine can impact our overall well-being. And my grandmother is a super inspiration! I should mention she’s a very healthy lady!
And she makes healthy food taste amazing.
So in addition to fruitcake (which is probably not very healthy, but there’s nothing wrong with a treat in moderation), she sent us some of her special homemade granola – “Granny’s Granola.”
Sooooo good! Chewy nuts and seeds, all dehydrated together with agave. Sweet and delicious.
She’s a pro, that Grandma.
