Do you eat your breakfast for dinner or as a snack? I do that all the time with my homemade granola. Healthy nutritional breakfast is a kick-start and power boost to keep your energy levels up high to work the whole day. Greek yogurt topped with granola, chia, cherry compote and fruits is my all time favorite. I eat this as dinner sometimes or to ease my pallet for sweet cravings I have it after my meals. It’s that versatile! Try my homemade granola recipe and you won’t buy a store bought one. Do you also like to eat the way I eat my granola?
