70's "T"

This week's T on Tuesday theme is "The 70's"
When I think of the seventies one of the things I think of is health food.
In the picture above, is some homemade granola that I've made for years.
The recipe is from the original Laurel's Kitchen Cookbook - which I don't have anymore - so I looked it up online (something unthinkable in the 70's!)
The tea is Good Earth Tea - which originally you could only get in Good Earth Restaurants in So. Calif.
Another fabulous healthfood restaurant down there (I'm not sure if it's still around) is Mother's Kitchen in Costa Mesa. And then there's The Stand in Laguna Beach. Or the Orange Inn in Corona del Mar.
All wonderful places for whole grains, fresh juices, date shakes, hummus, sprouts ... and granola :)

This is probably a good quote for the health food revolution ...
it all sounds good until a yummy maple bar donut comes along :)

You tapped into the 70's beautifully, Earth and Health Food, I still have Laurel's Kitchen, I also enjoyed Vegetarian Epicure very much too!
Your granola looks delicious!
Far out :)
Happy T Tuesday to you!

I love Good Earth tea -- the smell makes me think of the first mindfulness meditation class I took out here in LA -- how's that for being a dippy southern Californian?

The granola recipe is doable. It sounds delicious...and maybe a little dangerous. I'm pretty sure in volume it could do as much damage as any donut.

I've got Good Earth Vanilla Chai but have never run across the original.

Happy Tea Day...and your past geranium post is beautiful!

What's the theme next week?

Its easier to live it up

It's great to see all the different areas we have picked out from the 70's.

I still drink Good Earth tea myself and have White and Good Sleep in my pantry. I just got up and heated up some water to have a cup as a matter-of-fact! Thanks for the reminder.
