Athena Calderone’s Granola with GLOW Compote
Following Carla’s appearance on Athena Calderone’s podcast, More Than One Thing, and their Instagram live chat, Athena has created a delicious new recipe: Coconut Yogurt with GLOW Blueberry Compote and Buckwheat Granola.
“Today marks the beginning of something completely new for me—my exploration with gut health,” Athena says. “This is also the first time I am sharing a breakfast recipe AND one that is both dairy-free, gluten-free, and includes GLOW—an innovative inner beauty powder from The Beauty Chef that’s packed with prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics.”
“I love nothing more than to learn and educate myself on something as important as gut health and digestion but I also love to teach and share that knowledge, too,” she says. In the latest episode of #eyeswoonunplugged, she “drizzles the most delicious blueberry GLOW compote over creamy coconut yogurt with a sprinkle of buckwheat, coconut and seed granola. Yum!” We couldn’t agree more!
