Honey granola – Odettes Eatery

Honey granola - Odettes Eatery

This granola was really delicious. The yogurt was pretty thick so we had to add a bit of milk to thin it out. I loved all the different flavors and textures of all the toppings though. Yum!

Granola and yoghurt – Cassava

Granola and yoghurt - Cassava
House made steel cut oats granola, house made yoghurt, summer fruits. $7
Cassava, San Francisco CA

This was pretty tasty, but honestly, there wasn’t enough food! We were SO hungry after having our tiny brunch here that we had to go to get dumplings down the street! I’m not a huge eater, so that says a lot about how small the portions are here. I can definitely eat, but I eat in small portions. Cassava’s portion were even too small for me!

Banana and honey yogurt parfait – Starbucks

Banana and honey yogurt parfait - Starbucks

Creamy yogurt with banana, honey and toasted granola. $4.99
Starbucks, Palm Springs International Airport (PSP)

This is definitely one of those things that makes way more fiscal sense to make at home, but I was starving after my flight so I had to get it, hehe! With full sugar and full fat, yes, it was yummy. 🙂

Breakfast bagel – Virgin Atlantic

Breakfast bagel - Virgin Atlantic

San Francisco (SFO) to London (LHR), Virgin Atlantic

When I opened the breakfast box I thought that it might be an egg and cheese sandwich, but it was only a plain bagel. Oh well. I was happy with anything after being in the air for over 9 hours!

Pumpkin trio muffin – Koffi

Pumpkin trio muffin Koffi

With pumpkin, almonds and granola, drizzled with a sugar glaze.  $2.95
Koffi, Palm Springs

Somehow, this muffin didn’t taste absurdly unhealthy.  Maybe it’s the granola?  Perhaps I think that since it has granola, it’s somehow healthier.  Regardless, this muffin did help to fill me up before we took the Aerial Tramway up and hiked to the top of Mt. San Jacinto.  It was a great day, and perhaps the granola helped make the hike a little easier.  Hehe!
