breakfast this morning: simple & delicious
vanilla almond granola cereal with sliced bananas, soy milk
This was so delicious. I used a recipe from Enlightened Cooking, a new cooking site I found when searching for a bread recipe. We have an abundance of zucchini and squash from both our parents so, why not make bread out of it! It was sweet and hearty and full of wonderful whole grains. I used half whole wheat and half unbleached all purpose flour, and yellow squash.
This is what I have been eating for breakfast. It’s so perfect for summer, light and healthy. Silk live yogurt, blueberries, strawberries and vanilla almond granola.
saturday morning deliciousness. pancakes & maple syrup.
My first watermelon of the summer…sweet & juicy and delicious.
Fun Facts about Watermelons:
- Every part of a watermelon is edible, even the seeds and rinds.
- Watermelon is an ideal health food because it doesn’t contain any fat or cholesterol, is high in fiber and vitamins A & C and is a good source of potassium.
- The first recorded watermelon harvest occurred nearly 5,000 years ago in Egypt.
- Watermelon is 92% water.
Delicious, nothing like homemade muffins. I used a vegetarian times recipe:
- 1/4 cup margarine (soy or regular)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup soymilk
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
I used whole wheat flour and only used 1/2 cup of natural sugar, but my applesauce was slightly sweetened. Next time I bake muffins again I will probably use less blueberries. These were delicious drizzled with honey.
