Bike rides and lazy picnics with Billy.
Whole Foods dried mango and a stock of GT’s Kombucha.
Chocolove Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate.
And last, but certainly not least, Love Grown Foods granola.
Love Grown Foods was started by Maddy & Alex, a couple who met while attending the University of Denver. What draws me to Love Grown Foods, besides the delicious product, is that Maddy and Alex have created more than a healthy food company, they have created a movement. The Love Grown Foods lifestyle says,
“Live Free. To be healthy is to live free. You are in control of your health…We believe that health is balance. In order to be healthy, find things that keep you active but that you also enjoy doing! Turn off your TV and LIVE FREE!”
I had the chance to meet Maddy yesterday as they were in Dallas on the last leg of their bus tour spreading the love across Texas. She was so endearing and kind, I could have spent the whole day with her. She was generous to give me a variety of all of their delicious granola for a brunch-time meeting yesterday at lululemon.
The granola was a big hit with everyone, and eaten with yogurt, fruit, milk, or just straight from the bag. We sampled every flavor, and each was unique, fresh and flavorful without being overly sweet. Cocoa Goodness was a favorite. Surprised?
Then you also won’t be surprised that later in the afternoon, I couldn’t resist having more of the Cocoa Goodness with my afternoon apple snack.

This granola will be making an appearance in my kitchen, and on the blog, frequently. I also wanted to note that all varieties of granola are made with certified gluten-free oats, for anyone who eats a gluten-free diet or has an intolerance to it.
What are some things that you love from this past weekend?
Are you a fan of granola? Do you like it plain? With dried fruit or nuts?
I love granola. My favorite varieties are honey or agave-based (as opposed to maple syrup), so Love Grown Foods has me covered there.
What’s your favorite springtime flower?
I’m loving the daffodils. They are everywhere in our neighborhood. I also love tulips.
I’m off to run 9 granola-fueled miles.
