Why do they call it being crunchy?

Just curious how that came about. I mean cloth diapers are soft and boobs are soft and a lot of other natural things. I heard the term a couple years ago but had no idea what it ment. I would have never put it together with natural living.

I think it's a spin off from granola, another term meaning the same.

DH calls our baby chip since she's so crunchy she'd crunch like one if you bit her : )

It is a play on the stereotype that natural-minded people love granola, so some began referring to us as 'granola' or 'crunchy.' It is considered a term of endearment.. :o)

 I was too little to be a hippie in the early 70's so I actually liked finding out that all of the things I did with my older children and have learned over the years and added as my family has grown....make me a hippie anyway!  on vacation

my sister lives in cali (lake tahoe) and she says a hippie there has many different meanings, i can't remeber all the ones she told me, but it ranged from lazy rec drug users to natrual minded moms, it was kind of funny.
