Greek Yogurt Granola Bowl with Fresh Berries

Greek Yogurt Granola Bowl with Fresh Berries

This recipe came out of a necessity to recreate. I found myself splurging on the seven dollar granola bowl at Gjelina Takeaway far too often. The sheer simplicity of ingredients, highlighted by their quality is what makes the food at Gjelina spectacular. The fruit is fresh from a local farmer’s market, the honey is of a raw and pure form, and their granola is full of texture and variety.   The recipe for this granolia bowl is incredibly simple but mandates a trip to the farmer’s market for the absolute tastiest berries. Quality granola, honey, and coconut flakes can easily be found at Whole Foods. The choice of fresh berries is a complete variable but I personally love the combination of fresh sliced strawberries, with juicy, in-season blackberries!   The best part of this recipe is that there is a ton of room for improvisation. You can top with chopped walnuts, sprinkle with chia seeds, or even drizzle on flax seed oil for an omega-3 boost and additional¬†protein and fiber.   Prep Time:¬†5 minutes Ingredients: 1 cup, low-fat plain Greek yogurt 1/3 cup, granola 1 tablespoon, honey 1/4 cup, sliced strawberries 1/4 cup, blackberries 1/4 cup, coconut flakes Preparation Top Greek yogurt with granola.

New Music Monday: June 2015 Playlist

There could be no better indication that summer has arrived then a June playlist post in mid-July! Thankfully a frenzy of summer activity was to blame and not a shortage of fantastic new music. This past month in music was quite remarkable. Jamie xx’s In Colour was indisputably the most anticipated and well-received release in June. His solo-debut album is a brilliant showcase of his minimalist musical aesthetic. The texture and variety of his tracks shine throughout the entire album. Leon Bridges’ Coming Home marked another highly anticipated debut album. His beautifully nostalgic, American soulful sound has made him a viral sensation. Perhaps my favorite, if not my most replayed album was Wolf Alice’s My Love Is Cool. I first heard of this London-based indie rock group through KCRW’s Jason Bentley. Their debut album did not fail to disappoint. It’s a complex, moody, and fascinating listen from start to finish. The lead female vocalist’s voice is nothing short of captivating. I could not recommend an album more highly- go take a listen!     1) Obvs- Jamie xx 2) Bros- Wolf Alice 3) Devil’s Whisper- Raury 4) Smooth Sailin’- Leon Bridges 5) Wolves Without Teeth- Of Monsters and Men 6) Higher Ground- Argonaut & Wasp 7) High- Zella Day 8) Anxious in Venice- Superhumanoids 9) Turn To Dust- Wolf Alice 10) Brown Skin Girl- Leon Bridges 11) Gold Dust Woman- Fleetwood Mac Follow me on...
