I am determined to get my hamburger back. Seriously.

I miss it so much! The crunch of the lettuce mingled with the tang of the mustard and sweet zing of the ketchup. The pickle, the meat, the bread! I miss it all!

Fourth of July Parfait

The 4th has been so yummy that I wanted to spilt up the recipes. This is a parfait with homemade grain-free granola and SCD homemade yogurt. It was so yummy and chock full of protein, good bacteria, vitamins and… calories. But it is a holiday so good ahead girl, get down.

I picked the recipe from Againstallgrain.com. Danielle has so many yummy recipes! The only thing I modified was to decrease the honey to 1/4 cup and switched the pecans to cashews.

I’m not usually a huge fan of granola but this is delicious! Light and crunchy with the perfect amount of sweetness. Here’s to celebrating the fourth and a land of abundance. What a blessing.
