A little bit-a-love.

Good morning to you bloggies! I am currently sipping on some joe, pounding away on a paper for my Public Health. For once, I am actually excited to write a paper. Paper writing is my my forte, I am much more a presentation kind of girl. My topic is on Corporate Social Responsibility, highlighting a company that goes above and beyond in their role towards society.
Which company did I choose to write about? Mmmm Whole Foods, der. I’m learning about all the amazing things (other than make delicious food) Whole Foods does for our communities. I am learning about their environmental campaigns, why they value organic food, the foundations they have, the donations they make, how they value local farming, their sustainability initiatives, the list goes on my friends.
My concluding thoughts: I want to work for a company that values good health. Whole Foods, Whole People, Whole Planet, is Whole Foods mission and I think it’s genius.
Want to know what else is genius?
Adding heart sprinkles to homemade granola to make the perfect homemade valentine gift :) Because there really isn’t anything better than a homemade gift from the heart.
Pre sprinkles
A little extra sugar never hurt anyone, plus it just makes my granola look cool. I can’t really take complete credit for this idea, it was Ashley’s. 
My obvious choice in packaging was a Mason Jar. Confession: I am a MJ hoarder. I have an entire shelf filled with different jars. At least I don’t hoard weird unicorn figurines or clocks. 

A Little Bit-a-Love Granola

-1C nuts (I used chopped walnuts)
-2T sesame seeds
-2T ground flax seed
-1C golden raisins (or any other dried fruit)
-1/4C honey
-1/4C olive oil
*Optional: Add a handful of love, heart sprinkles

-Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
-Mix dry ingredients together and then pour on wet. Toss.
-Evenly spread granola onto baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes. Every 10 minutes or so, give your granola a toss so it cooks evenly.

I’m hoping my special someone doesn’t read this. I am not the best at holding back surprises :)
Time to get schtuff done!
