Extra Eggy French Toast

by naneraday on March 26, 2015

So this may just be a super strange “recipe” to some, but who likes their french toast a little on the eggy side?  Growing up, whenever Ma made french toast I over the pieces that were sopping with the egg mixture.  Anyone else with me?  Now french toast isn’t something I typically eat for breakfast because it feels like there isn’t much nutrition to it but with this little protein boost from the eggs, I think its totally acceptable.

gimme dat frannnnnnch toast

Told ya it was eggy.  Ha!  Look how yellow it is thanks to Happy Hen Farms eggs.  But anywho, back to the recipe.

-two pieces of bread(I used Dutchy, my favorite bread from a store back home but this would be great with my usual sprouted or whatever you have)

-two eggs

-two tablespoons milk of your choice

-dash of cinnamon and vanilla

-pinch of salt

Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.  Dunk bread into mixture and cook in pre warmed pan with melted coconut oil. Dump remaining egg mixture over top of the bread.  Cook until browned and flip.  Top with a little grass fed butter, banana slices, and syrup.  Dig in baby cakes!

Blueberry Banana Yogurt Pops

by naneraday on March 19, 2015

Friends! I know I know I say it every time but so sorry I’ve been MIA.  Not even sure if anyone is checking in on my little piece of the blogoshpere these days. With that being said, I am not going to sit here and give you a long laundry list of reasons as to why I’ve gone missing on you guys yet again, I am just going to hop right back in and share a super delish yogurt pop recipe with ya.  Fair enough?

yogpops for the win

First off, I got these little silicon BPA free tubes off Amazon but you could totally use paper cups with a popsicle stick inserted as well to get the same effect.  Let’s get into the nitty gritty deets of these baby cakes.

-1 1/2 cups yogurt(I used full fat Kalona but totally use whatever plain yogurt it is you like or have on hand)

-1 ripe banana

-1 cup frozen organic blueberries

3 heaping tablespoons of honey(I got this one from Muff, her moms friend has bees and its wildly delicious)

Dump all ingredients in a blend and zap until smooth and creamy.  You can withhold some of the blueberries and toss them in the end and give it a quick zap for a chunkier pop.  Pour into molds and pop em into the freezer.  If you use the tubes, make sure you leave enough room at the top to press on the lids, I definitely made that rookie mistake and had quite the mess.  Once you are ready to eat them, I like to let them sit for a few minutes on the counter until they get a little soft but you can just go right for it if thats your thing.

I love these for days when you want yogurt on the go but can’t really eat it in the car(going to yoga and errands) and also for a sweet treat at the end of the night, totally cures that sweet tooth without reaching for a pint of Ben & Jerrys, which by the way is GMO free now which is wayyyyyy cool.

Missed ya, love ya, and I’ll be back soon.

Recipe Rundown: Eggoats

January 29, 2015

As if I didn’t think I could love oatmeal more, I discovered eggoats. Simply adding an egg to your oatmeal adds so much staying power not to mention  a rich, creamy texture.  I highly recommend you make it on the stovetop but its so much creamier but I do it on the fly in the [...]
