Special thanks to Kathy Smart, TV Host, Chef and Nutritionist of "Live The Smart Way" TV show - North America's first Gluten Free TV Cooking Show - for contributing this tasty breakfast granola recipe.

"The impact of eliminating gluten from the diet, even for non-celiac people is increased energy, sleeping better at night, less brain fog and a lot of people experience weight loss. The key to success is staying away from packages with a gluten-free label and focusing instead on fresh food,"- Erika Weissenborn B.Sc. FNH, CHN
