Can you please consider adding the nutritional calories, fat and carbohydrates to your recipes? Much appreciated.
Hi Valerie! We have chosen not to include nutritional information for our recipes as we would not encourage nutrient tallying and calorie counting, which we believe can create more problems than they solve. The general guideline to follow is that, with a whole-food, plant-based diet, you can eat until comfortably satiated.
The higher water and fiber content of whole plant-based foods allows our bodies to more accurately gauge how much food we need to eat. Whole plant foods contain all the essential nutrients (with the exception of Vitamin B12), and in proportions that are more consistent with human needs than animal-based or processed foods.
However, we do understand that certain medical conditions do require knowing specific nutrient information, so for those instances we recommend entering our recipes into online nutritional software: http://www.cronometer.com. If you have a health issue or have concerns, be sure to consult a physician.
I used muesli. Very good. Will definitely make again!
Is the millet cooked first?
I made this last night. I did not cook the millet in advance. It toasts along with the oats.
Will try this.
How much of the recipe do I eat? This looks like it is meant to feed multiple people?
Hi Alison, we avoid telling people how much to eat; instead we just say how much a recipe makes. All our recipes are quite healthy, and how much you eat is up to you. I would probably eat three half peaches with granola for breakfast, as shown in the photo. In that case you would have enough for four people. If you’re serving this for dessert, it will stretch a little farther.
I made it this morning and my whole family loves it. They were asking for more. Healthy to think and Healthy to eat. Happy! =)
