Healthy Eats: Homemade Gingerbread Granola

In the process of deepening your practice, you find that there are endless ways to live your yoga everyday. The art of yoga can be found in so many unique places other than barefoot on your mat-- one of them being in the kitchen. Enriching your practice starts with your mind, connects with your soul and ends with your body. With that said, we love discovering yummy recipes to fuel a healthy and happy lifestyle.

With 2015 just around the corner, we're spreading holiday cheer every way we know how. Tis' the season for gingerbread, scarves and sequins, toasty fires, peppermint and cozy pajamas-- who's with us? Although we'd love to be elbows deep in gingerbread cookie-dough, we've decided to take the healthier route (our abs will thank us later). This homemade gingerbread granola from Acordingtoelle.com is the best of both worlds-- sugar, spice, healthy and nice.
