I had deceived myself into believing that granola was good for my caloric journey, but who am I kidding? Granola can be seriously delicious, but from a caloric journey perspective it is evil. How do I find myself in this granola-compromised situation?
It all started with my wife. Doesn't it always? My wife, who is beautiful and thin, has granola and Greek yogurt for breakfast every morning. The granola she eats is made and sold at our local supermarket, Fairway Market. Because it is made on the premises it doesn't have any nutritional information on it. So one evening, when I raided the kitchen for something sweet I ended up eating a bowl of said Fairway granola. Yes, I knew it was full of caloric time bombs, nuts, dried fruit, oil, sugar, and rolled oats, but I convinced myself that hey, it's granola, how bad can it be calorically?
I'm sure most of you know the answer to that question. Granola is very, very, very, dangerous. How did I discover this?
