Eating homemade can be considered timely.
However here are a few reasons to support homemade:
You will save money and even more money if you are smart about where you purchase your raw materials
Your final product will be free of additives and extra fats, etc.
You will be able to make a lot in one sitting so your batch should last a while
You can tailor to fit your needs
Here is the best bonus:if you make a batch around the holidays, what better gift you can offer than a fresh batch of granola. This can only be for someone you know well. I am not a fan of coconut so it would not be cool if I received a jar of granola, which I love, but with coconuts, which I am not a fan of.
Here are few things that are easy to make: tomato sauce, pesto, granola, bread, iced tea, mayo. I included some pics of my current stash.
