In my endless search for the perfect breakfast, I was looking through the bounteous cereal shelves of the Co-op yesterday and a shiny package of “Lizi’s Granola” caught my eye. I remember the name from a few years ago when I got into a fight trying to get into a packet.
I bought some to see if things have improved and because Lizi seems a very nice lady. Her picture is still on the back of the packet – she’s still very photogenic but I am sure her hair wasn’t grey before. I hope this is not a Granola side effect ??
Just as I remember from last time, there is lots of helpful, but incomprehensible health advice about Lizi’s Granola. It has a low GL – that’s Glycaemic Load – so now you know !
The ingredients are all full of nuts and seeds but they also have Oligofructose – which with my magnifying glass to read the small print – I am told is a natural soluble fibre derived from chicory – so that is alright then.
Other bits of useful information:-
- It’s GMO free – unfortunately it doesn’t explain GMO ?
- It also gives the DRI – that’s Daily Reference Intake – clear ?
- And finally, be reassured you can recycle the package as plastic : LDPE / PET / BOPP – I think it is something to do with animals dancing ?
Along with making excellent Granola, I think Lizi must have a Phd in food science or even nuclear physics. But perhaps it is best not to educate the world on the back of a Granola packet.
The good news is that it comes from Barry Island and that tastes a lot better than the sandwiches full of sand that I used to have there on Sunday school outings.
P.s. I managed to open the packet ok. Perhaps Lizi read my last blog about her Granola. (See “Granola Wars” by clicking on “BREAKFAST” in the TAG CLOUD).
