Here’s the recipe to making your own healthy cereal or granola:
- 2 cups rolled or steel-cut oats
- 1 cup raw honey
- Dried fruits of your choice (raisins, blueberries, prunes)
- Nuts of your choice (almonds, pecans, cashews)
The ingredients are really up to you. You can add desiccated coconut, muscovado sugar, some vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg
Mix everything together. Layout on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for 12 minutes at 160° C. Turn the cereal over and bake the other side for another 10-12 minutes. Cool and store.
Best served in the mornings or as snacks with some milk and fresh fruits.
After airing the first plug, we got interesting comments and questions. One of them was where we got the bike rack in the background.
The bike rack is locally made and is available at Al Terra — the bike store in Ortigas Home Depot. This one fits two bikes stacked on top of each other on the same side. Other models fit four (so it’s this model with 2 more hooks on the other side) or just two side to side.
The bike is well made, some thoughtful design elements (ex. surgical plastic tubes on the hooks so the bikes don’t get scratched) is well balanced, and (the best part) it’s locally made — you can have it custom built & it doesn’t need to get on a plane to get here.
Here’s the first promo plug for the show. In 30 secs, it tells you a little something about the show
Green Living can be seen on ANC during the following times:
Tues: 9:30 pm
Wed: 4:00 am & 2:30 pm
Sat: 3:30 am & 8:30 pm
Sun: 12:30 am, 10:30 am & 9:00 pm
Here’s a quick behind the scenes look at how we do the show and some of the thoughts that go into our creative decisions. This one is about lighting.
As a show that talks about being green, natural, and sustainable we thought that shooting outdoors as much as we could would be one of the ways we could bring that message across.
Here’s Paolo with our crew shooting the closing spiels to our first episode.
We realized that we save on electricity and can keep our bulbs longer because, as one producer says, we use “God’s lighting.”
Green Living’s pilot episode (Season 01 Episode 01) starts airing tonight: 9:30 pm on ANC.
For our first episode, we’ll show a house built to be green from the ground up. Architect Gelo Manosa gives a tour and shows us not only the house’s features but also talks about how it was built and how the household is run.
Our second segment is about Ritual – a small general store in Makati, that carries locally-sourced sustainably-produced goods. Every item, from the goods sold to the store it’s sold in, has a story.
Our third segment is about eating well. Paolo walks us through making healthy breakfast cereal with ingredients easily found in the supermarket.
