rice pudding isn't rice pudding without cinnamon. and raisins.A side of squash for breakfast? It has happened more than once
most of this squash might have been eaten before i got to the rest of breakfast.
That whole lactose question hasn’t prevented me from concocting some pretty protein pudding parfaits. When I’m feeling sort of snacky in the mornings, these make me feel like I get to eat little bits at a time, for a long time…
cinnamon vanilla tofu, Greek yogurt, and protein pudding w. nuts, rice cakes, apples, oranges…or put it all together, if I choose to.*
lemon nunaturals-sweetened chia, kefir, almond milk protein 'pudding'*I don’t usually choose to. Most of the toppings get eaten separately on my way to school before I can actually assemble. Meaning they aren’t really parfaits are they? More like…collections of potential parfait ingredients.

Giant pancakes made with a combination of oats, coconut flour, and buckwheat–and sometimes pumped up with protein powder–

And now, I know what you are thinking: “Sarah, didn’t you say you felt like a yolk pornographer? Where are all of the the drippy, dippy egg yolks? “And wait. Can you please just finally tell us how you make those pancakes?“ Yeah. No. After all, isn’t an entire yolk porn expose much more enticing? And how about a post entitled ‘Pancake Parade’?
