hangry-(adjective) : Feeling or showing anger caused by hunger. Combination of “hungry” and “angry”.
I’m not a breakfast eater. You might have noticed I don’t post much about it.
I’ve found a delicious way to kill off the 10 o’clock slump. You know, that time of day when you’re tired, and hungry and
grumpy angry and your productivity just leaves? You’re hangry, right?
Enter Nature ValleyTM Protein Granola! With fresh fruit, and some plain or vanilla yogurt, I can whip up a quick breakfast in nothing flat, layering in the granola like a parfait.Not only is it pretty, its delicious. The crunch adds some ‘tooth’ and there are 10 grams of protein in each half cup ! Now that’s a great way to add energy for breakfast or snacks and chase away the hangries!
If I’m on the go, I like to grab one of my homemade bars chock full of fruits and nuts and Nature ValleyTM Protein Granola . The recipe couldn’t be easier and I’ve found myself grabbing one of these while watching the evening news, before dinner is ready. Another great way to add protein to an otherwise good for you snack and add some extra protein into your day.
Nature ValleyTM Protein Granola is a versatile product that can be added on top of many other food or used as an ingredient in all sorts of recipes. Its in your stores now and comes in several flavors and varieties. I was provided the Oats ‘n Honey and the Peanut Butter ‘n Dark Chocolate flavors. While the product touts 26 grams of whole grain, the sugar counts are a lot higher than I’d prefer. The Oat’s ‘n Honey Nature ValleyTM Protein Granola which I’ve used here contains 12 grams of sugars. None of the products contain any artificial colors or flavors, but they do contain soy, so if you’re soy sensitive, you might substitute rolled oats in the recipe. And some all natural honey.
