Granola for lunch

- Categories : Live a healthier life

When we hear the word granola, we automatically think of breakfast. But granola can also perfectly be used as a topping with a salad, soup, or vegetables,...

Granola can perfectly be added to a savoury dish for a crunchy touch. It is, however, best not to choose a sweet version but rather a pure version without sugars, or a spiced version. This will give you a longer feeling of satiety and will reduce the urge for unhealthy snacks. 

The nice thing is that you can start experimenting again and look for combinations that you like. Below you can find some ideas.
