Flax Snax

I originally came across this recipe on Ellen Sue Spicer’s website back…well, way back! 

It was a hit with my kids and even better because it is so simple to make, I would get my kids involved, even at a very young age, and we would make a batch every weekend.

If we had young friends over, we made a batch with them. And then I shared them with my bookclub and the recipe became a hit there too!

I admit, it is one of those interesting concoctions that is strangely addictive.

I look forward to hearing what you think!

I recommend buying your flax seeds whole and grinding them in a blender yourself. This will ensure that you are using fresh flax. Once ground, the flax will be fresh for about a week.

How To Make B’Eggs (Video)

I wanted to share one of my favourite make-ahead breakfast recipes with you.

I love it because it is delicious and simple, and you can make it in advance. And…since you make so many at once, you will have breakfast ready for multiple days (unless you are feeding multiple mouths like I am)!

B’Eggs are also a great snack and they can sub as lunch for your kids on those days when you don’t have any leftovers to pack!

They will last 3-4 days in the fridge and you customize them too (as you will see in the video).

Hope you love them!

And please…share this with those loved ones…you know, the ones who “don’t have time to eat healthy.” Sharing actionable information is one of the best ways to support them to make change.
