This week’s Who, me? challenge is to make something for someone.
Every day we have two choices: the sustainable way or…the other way. It’s easy to want to help the planet, but tricky part is the who, me? question (followed by the inevitable yes, you! response).
We all want to show the ones we love just how much we love them this week, so why not make something for them? This morning I made a special batch of granola for my family. Why was it special? Because it screamed THANKS. So if you want to give thanks in the form of granola this holiday….don’t think twice about it. All the ingredients can be found in bulk bins at the grocery store too, so don’t forget your reusable bags!
