Ot. Inflation and granola

Inflation seemed to be hitting my granola, so I started making my own. Made a huge quantity for very little cash. Tastes 19x better than boxed cereal.

Pretty easy to do while doing other things around the house.

Made around 8 boxes worth of granola for 8 bucks, with nuts, honey, seeds, etc. This is not a huge moneysaver, but I'm sold on fresh granola.

Inflation in granola I believe is permanent

Personally I'm not going back. This homemade stuff is vastly superior. Indeed, I'd say the boxed granola is disgusting now. Weird ingredients, made who knows when, stale.

All those carbs are bad for you.

Have some steak that is 90% less to make at home, or for something lighter gazpacho.

My Van-Life Life-Partner is also vegetarian.

Between that and living close to People's Coop and being into raw food, I am eating a fair amount of vegetarian meals.

I don't eat processed or preserved meat, but when I do eat it, the serving size is fairly large. Like half a chicken or 3/4lb of beef sometimes.

Gazpacho is vegetarian normally, though I suppose you could add meat to it.

Just another reason you should try OB living a try. Just on Voltaire St there's People's coop vegetarian grocery, Plant Power veg fast food, Peace Pies raw vegan restaurant, and a vegan bakery whose name I cannot remember. Mr. Moto pizza now has like 6 types of vegetarian and 3 types of vegan pizza, and the ones I tried are great.

Very bike friendly too, especially bacon st. The best way to dip your toe in is doing a 1 or 2 month vacation rental.
