quicky: gallagher’s granola

A quicky is a simple and fast yet highly nutritious and delicious recipe. Because sometimes you need that extra minute saved to take a deep breath, dance, sit and observe, hug a friend, do laundry, drink mocktails in the park, save the world or salute the sun.

I came up with this particular recipe and flavour combo during a live performance by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. It was at an outdoors lakeshore music festival. Both the visual effects Noel used as well as the visual effects the sunset presented us with were stunning and inspiring. The marriage of these shades of deep pink and intens green reminded me of lush raspberries and fragrant fields of provence thyme. I desperately wanted to pay hommage to these two natural stunners and came up with a granola. On top of being delightfully delicious and naturally nutritious it holds elements of healing. Thyme might be one of the most powerful medicines you will find in your kitchen cabinets. It battles fungal infections, yeast overgrowth, viruses and bad bacteria. Use it to rid yourself from candida, colds, diarrhea, bad breath, digestive problems, nervous ailments. This evergreen herb is known for its help in overcoming irritable bowel syndrome. Make a tea infusion, add it to your stews, dressings and sauces or create this easy homemade granola. And don’t forget to go to festivals. Loads and loads of festivals. Places that will make your heart burst and spew sparkling confetti. Places that make you feel oh so good and present you with infinite inspiration to live your life fully and wholeheartedly.


Happy days all!

Xoxo kyra.
