So exciting news…I’m a working girl now! Well, sort of. I began an internship in the sensory science department of Unilever, a huge food/lifestyle product company (for reference, they’re the ones who own Ben and Jerry’s, Lipton, Hellman’s…the works). And if you thought it wasn’t possible to have a 3 hour training on how to taste mayonnaise, you would be wrong. But for a foodie, this is heaven.

And part of being a working girl means I can’t just graze through the fridge all day. I have to like, plan my food for the day. Namely, da snacks. And I’ve found that the chances I bring a healthy snack to work exponentially increase if I have it prepped and ready to go the night before. I’m talking veggies cut and bagged, fruit out on the counter, granola in a Ziploc.

We’ve been a bit lazy lately, just buying boxes of granola at the grocery, but I’m thinking I’ll start making granola in bulk on weekends. I mean, it’s so easy. So easy. We made granola with pumpkin and quinoa and even some REAL good granola bars. And now, friends, we make Salted Caramel Granola!
