can you take…

Yet another breakfast bake??  I hope you’re not getting sick of seeing these, because I am not getting sick of eating them!

Yesterday, a reader asked if you can make these in a muffin tin.

Question answered!  I’ve also been asked if you can use a real egg instead of a flax or chia “egg”.  Yes, 1 egg white will do the trick!

The batter fits perfectly in 3, almost full muffin tins.  You could also use 2-3 single serving ramekins as well.

Today’s variety was blueberry buckwheat!  THREE muffins means THREE times the fun with the toppings.  And now I’m one cheesy line away from having you all hit X and close out of my page.

Piece of advice #2 Soy is in EVERYTHING.

Oh yes, for 3.5 lovely weeks of detoxing my body from soy, I never even THOUGHT to check my Spectrum spray oil.  Tisk tisk on me.  I can’t imagine having a soy allergy!!

The ever so lovely Maddy, from Love Grown Foods!  She got to take a work break and headed up my way for a fabulous lunch.  One thing I’ve never mentioned about Maddy + Alex [her boyfriend + biz partner] is that they are TWENTY THREE years old.  Impressive, no??

Absolutely lovely lunch!

Time to juice!

I peeled the grapefruit, because I thought if I didn’t the juice would be bitter.  Well, that was a good call, but I should have DEFinitely peeled the oranges as well!

It came from the idea for coconut cream, from The Non-Dairy Queen. I saw it on HEAB’s blog the other day.
