Attention all fellow Omnipoders out there, if you haven’t heard of the Omnipod Recycling Program then this post is for you! If you don’t have an omnipod, don’t leave, this post is still for you; just skip over the recycling part and get right to the good stuff – Granola Dust Recipe!
Omnipod Recycling Program
People are always shocked, when I tell them I throw a pod away every 3 days. Not only is it a bunch of plastic that’s going in a landfill, but with all the little gears and batteries inside it seems like such a waste to throw it away.
The makers of Omnipod agree. Which is why they have created the Eco-Pod Recycling Program. The Eco-Pod Recycling Program takes your used Omnipods, breaks them down, and recycles them. Whatever can’t be recycled (like the batteries) are safely disposed of or ground down to a pulp to reduce their impact on landfills.
You’ve Hooked Me! How do I sign up for this program?
It’s easy! Just call Omnipod 1 (800) 591-3455 and tell them you’d like to join the Eco-Pod Recycling program.
- They’ll ship you a bag either that day or with your next order.
- Once you receive the bag place no more than 50 pods inside.
- Put directly in your mailbox and say sayonara.
It couldn’t be any easier! Just another reason why I love Omnipod so much.
Now, onto the tasty stuff, because who doesn’t need a good low-carb granola recipe?!
This recipe was adapted from Healthful Pursuit.
- ⅓ cup coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup raw sesame seeds
- 1 cup hemp hearts
- 2 cups shredded coconut
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- Heat oven to 350°F
- Mix separately, wet & dry. Then combine
- Transfer to baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes.
- Rotate/stir, bake for another 5 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 1 hour before transferring to a mason jar (or sealed container).
Will keep for 1 month at room temp, longer if refrigerated. Although it never lasts more than a week in my house.
I love to put this granola over smoothies like my chocolate PB Banana smoothie or sprinkled over my low carb keto pancakes! You could also eat it like cereal with some delicious homemade coconut milk, or use it as a topping on your banana ice cream. Or you can just eat it with a spoon, like I did immediately after taking these pictures.
