According to the Urban Dictonary, Granola means: A person who dresses like a hippy, eats natural foods (granola), and is usually a Liberal, but in all other ways is a typical middle class white person, and is likely to revert back to being straight when they finish college.
Well... that might not be true for my husband... LOL...
