An adjective used to describe people who are environmentally aware (flower child, tree-hugger), open-minded, left-winged, socially aware and active, queer or queer-positive, anti-oppressive/discriminatory (racial, sexual, gender, class, age, etc.) with an organic and natural emphasis on living, who will usually refrain from consuming or using anything containing animals and animal by-products (for health and/or environmental reasons), as well as limit consumption of what he or she does consume, as granola people are usually concerned about wasting resources. Usually buy only fair-trade goods and refrain from buying from large corporations, as most exploit the environment as well as their workers, which goes against granola core values. The choice of not removing body hair (see amazon) and drug use are not characteristics that define granola people, and people, regardless of granola status, may or may not partake in said activities. This definition is sometimes confused with hippy.
Jack: My best friend is vegan and only buys produce that is organically grown from local farmers. Her and her feminist, vegan boyfriend are both in Greenpeace and advocate for queer rights. She waxes her legs but she's still granola.
Jill: So that means she's not a dyke? And she grows her own reefer?
Jack: Just because she's granola, doesn't mean she does drugs. Also, granola status has nothing to do with sexual preference.
Jill: Well maybe she'll know where to buy hemp and how to tie-dye?
Jack: She's granola, not a hippy. Some granola people are hippy and vice-versa, but they're not the same thing.

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.
Did you see that granola chick at the farmer's market buying bean sprouts?
Yeah, her new Volvo was parked next to me.

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.
