A new-age/more civilized hippie who can usually be found journaling in an Eno in the middle of the forest, wearing Chaco's or Birkenstocks and athletic shorts (always ready to hike or go on an adventure at any moment), a backpack with a CamelBak water bottle attached by a carabiner, and with dreadlocks (all over or just one or two). The phrase "save the world" in their vocabulary is interchangeable with "travel the world and meet cool people from different cultures" (usually talking about Africa).
Ever since she moved to Portland, she has become so granola. All she wants to do is go hiking in her Chacos and she brings her hammock with her wherever she goes.

Someone who is "granola" tends to enjoy the outdoors, all while staying inside in their nice suburban middle-class white neighborhood. They are usually seen wearing Chacos, Patagonia t-shirts, and Columbia PFG shorts, along with a North Face backpack, a Camelbak water bottle (attached with a carabiner,) and even a Life is Good hat and Kavu keychain. They claim to enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities while rolling up in their off-road vehicle that they would never dare get a speck of dirt on. They dream about living in the mountains and taking amazing roadtrips but never do. They care about nature and want to "save the trees" and recycle as much as possible. Those who have gone granola actually listen to pretty good music, like folk and alternative and heavily enjoy Christian music if they are religious (another reason they enjoy the outdoors - to get "closer to God"). In short, granola people are almost like modern-day transcendentalists and slight hippies, just without the drugs and psychedelic music.
Jack: Did you see Will rolling up in his shiny, clean Jeep Liberty with a kayak on top? He stepped out wearing a Patagonia t-shirt and $100 Chacos! He must have gone granola.

An adjective also used to describe people would often do NOT vaccinate themselves or their children. Granola women often home birth and sometimes home school their children.
1. The granola family did not inject poisons into their children, thus protecting them from autism and other mental illnesses bought on by vaccines.

2. That crunchy granola didn't get the flu shot and never got sick. I got the vaccine and got the flu a week later!
