How do I know when the melon is ready to pick?

Ripe melons turn from green to tan-yellow, and smell very aromatic. Ripe melons also slip off the vine when you press lightly on the vine next to the melon (this is called harvesting at full slip, which is appropriate for Trifecta). Trifecta is a good keeper so you don’t have to worry about the melons going bad in the field as long as you check a couple times a week.

Trifecta seeds
Trifecta. Isn’t that a fantastic word?! I’m not enirely sure it is an appropriate term for what I am describing, but as I’ve said before, I love words. This one gets stuck in my head more than any other word I can think of right now (Weird Fact: It is usually James Franco’s voice saying it in the same manner he did in the film “Pineapple Express“), and I hardly ever get a chance to use it. Until now.

Super Seed Trifecta Granola

Trifecta. Isn’t that a fantastic word?! I’m not enirely sure it is an appropriate term for what I am describing, but as I’ve said before, I love words. This one gets stuck in my head more than any other word I can think of right now (Weird Fact: It is usually James Franco’s voice saying it in the same manner he did in the film “Pineapple Express“), and I hardly ever get a chance to use it. Until now.

There are three super-powered seeds in this granola: Hemp, Flax, and Chia. They are all considered super foods because of their amazing health benefits. Hemp seeds are an excellent source of very easily digestible protein, and they are full of omegas and crucial amino acids that most vegetable proteins lack. Flax seeds are very rich in lignans and omega-3 fatty acids. They have been proven to control cholesterol, regulate bowel movements, and prevent cancer and heart disease. Chia seeds, on top of being chock-full of soluble fibers, omegas, and proteins, they are full of cleansing and hydrating properties. Aztec warriors would cross the dessert for days at a time, keeping chia seeds under their tongues to prevent dehydration. I’m not an Aztec warrior, but I am totally on board with all of these health benefits!

This granola unites all three seeds creating a trifecta (Yay!) of wondrous health benefits. With gluten-free oats and crisp rice cereal, as the base, andusing brown rice syrup as the base, this granola is light and not overly sweet. It is gluten-free, sugar-free, and very low in oil. It is, by far, my favorite granola to date. Usually it is just Chris who eats the granola for breakfast, but I have quit my oatmeal (for now) and have been enjoying this trifecta (Yay!) of goodness every morning.
