I just made the most amazing granola of life. I found it in a GI cookbook. I love the GI and I've been sort of following it along with Weight Watchers and it's super helpful. I'm almost never hungry because the foods are so filling, nutritious and provide a slow energy burn. Yay!


3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
3 tbsp Tahini
150g whole oats (I used organic jumbo oats)
2 tbsp dessicated coconut
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
3 tbsp dried goji berries
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
3 tbsp Xylitol (or other vegetable derived natural sugar, even unrefined brown sugar works ... please don't use Splenda, I beg you)

Heat a frying pan on a very low heat and add the olive oil. Let it slowly heat up (if you're using coconut oil, let it melt). Add the oats and cook them slowly, stirring to get all of the oil absorbed. I cooked mine for about 5 minutes until they were turning golden. Add the Tahini and stir for a minute, making sure the oats are coated evenly. Add all the other ingredients and stir.

Serves 4 people (serving side is 85g).

Top with organic, bio-live vanilla yogurt and prepare to DIE SO GOOD OMG. Also good with fresh strawberries or blueberries sliced on top.

You know what I'm sick of feeling guilty about?

Having a glass of red wine.

All the doctors all blah blah liver failure cancer heart disease weight gain WELL WHATEVER. I LOVE red wine. I love the taste, the smell, the feel of it on my tongue. I love the different and complex flavours. I love how I can usually tell where it's from. I love the smoothness, the roughness, the oakiness or the fruitiness. I love cheap red wine. But most of all I love expensive red wine.

And I am sick to fucking death of feeling guilty about the fact that I ENJOY it. Everytime I turn around there is another 'reputable' research panel saying it is crap for my body, and yet, what ISN'T anymore? I could get hit by a bus tomorrow, and knowing my luck that is entirely possible, and I eat heathily and exercise, so I can has 1 guilty pleasure, right? EXCEPT NOT GUILTY.

/semi-joking except not.
