Inside The Oven: No, it’s what’s inside my breakfast collection this week. Week Links: Did you celebrate National Hug a Vegetarian Day? A KFC reason to move to Canada?
Every so often, I like to let readers take a peek at the most private and intimate parts of my life-yes, that’s right, my freezer, refrigerator, spice rack, and much more!
It’s just another way I hope to bring you some ideas for meals, snacks and hopefully, to break the monotony. This week it’s what I eat for breakfast. Staring from the far left:
Van’s Organic Blueberry Waffles:
Vegan. 5 grams of protein. 4 grams of fiber. These stats are starting to turn this into a personal’s ad. Looking for someone to smear vegan butter over it and drizzle hot organic maple syrup in every crevice. Whoa…almost too hot to publish.
Bob’s Red Mill Old Fashioned Cooking Oats:
You should really take a trip to the Red Mill one day. It’s rife with wholesome, mostly organic items from gluten-free to cornmeal and flour to lentil soup to mixes for muffins and other sweets. The Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats are pleasurable for any meal and I’ve had “dinner oatmeal,” on several occasions.
Silk Soy Products have really come a long way. It looks like “coffee,” is cropped in this pic. Think vegan Starbucks Frappuccino: a coffee flavored creamy drink sans dairy. I seriously think this should be used in a switch and swap test. As a former Frappuccino drinker, this brought back memories. Starbucks and other caffeine junkies will be too satisfied to realize the difference.
Nature’s Path Peanut Butter Granola:
I once saw cold cereal as a waste, sticking to protein bars or oatmeal. It seemed pointless to eat the empty sugary calories of most traditional cereals, then again, I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the high fiber, oat and grain filled, “Mother’s Bran,” you normally think of you grandparents eating to assist with their…um…routine bodily functions.
That changed after I tried Nature’s Path Peanut Butter Granola cereal. My preferred soymilk of choice to let this granola swim is Silk Vanilla. Incidentally, this brand of cereal is the same that one of PETA’s cutest of 2008 likes, although he favors the hemp variety. My logic: One of PETA’s cutest likes Nature’s Path. I like Nature’s Path. Therefore, that automatically makes me one of the cutest too. Mathematicians, I know you have a formula that backs this up.
What else do I eat in the early morning hour? Learn how you can have Pina Colada for breakfast after the break…
Nature’s Path Pomegran Plus Cherry Granola:
There’s more than one way to be cute.
An energy supplement drink that’s vegetarian friendly. Once again, a brand that’s come a long way. In the beginnings, there was chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Now you can have high protein Pina Colada for breakfast. Non-alcoholic, of course. You do still have to get to work. Even if you are the cutest. Other bonuses include 14-20 grams of protein depending on if you mix it with milk, juice, or water. Other flavors include Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Tangerine Dream (pictured here), and Blueberry to name a few. Non GMO soy is part of the package.
So there you have it. I’ve opened one of the most private areas of my life to you. And only you. You know the drill. We both get a set of each others’ keys. Now that you know what’s in my breakfast collection, tell me what’s in yours.
I missed National Hug A Vegetarian Day. Naturally, I didn’t get hugged. (Examiner)
