If you've ever read our weekly Monday series in the blog called "From Our Kitchen Table", you know that I eat a version of oats practically every day of the week, but this was not always the case. Despite always being a kid who ate just about everything, I had a nemesis: oatmeal. I hated oatmeal with a capital H! Partly because I had always tried the one my grandpa made which was completely bland, mushy and just looked plain boring! And let me just say that my grandpa was a total gourmand, but oatmeal was his kryptonite for sure. 

The truth is that oatmeal, or oat porridge as I like to call it now since it doesn't bring back that boring visual of a bowl filled with gray goop, can be absolutely delicious. It all rests on three things, the types of oats you use, the technique you use for cooking them and what you add to that pot, and of course, the toppings. You know me and toppings right? I once used to daydream that I was going to own an ice cream shop that only had one kind of ice cream (chocolate) and 500 options for toppings. Yeah... I love them. This particular recipe I'm sharing today as part of our membership program, is quite literally my perfect porridge, meaning the kind I love and can make over and over again. Plus it's so easy to make you can easily memorize it and just whip it up early in the morning. It only takes 10 minutes to cook!

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is what do you eat on a daily basis as a vegan. For me it's a no brainer since I actually have more variety in my diet now than before I was vegan, but I completely understand how this can be a complete mystery to someone eating a standard meat centered diet. I can understand it because I was once that person that thought all vegetarians and vegans ate were beans and rice. Breakfast especially can seem daunting if you are anything like I was, a bacon and egg breakfast eater all the way. Today I'm de-mystifying vegan breakfasts for you, and trust me it's quite possibly the easiest meal to veganize with just a couple of adjustments. It's also a meal in which you'll get to eat vegan versions of your favorites more than you ever thought possible.

If you follow our weekly Monday blog posts From our Kitchen Table, it's likely that you already have a ton of breakfast ideas under your belt. Every week I share what we've been eating the week before in the hopes that it will inspire your cooking, but today I'm giving you 14 amazing breakfast ideas that are healthy, filling and simply delicious, two to choose from for every day of the week!

Homemade pizza, tofu for fish lovers and vegan burgers! + Brownble gets a Holiday makeover!

Our favorite time of year is here! Let me start by saying that I'm obsessed with Christmas. In fact, as I write this I'm listening to a rock and roll Christmas playlist. Pearl Jam's "Let me sleep (it's Christmas time)" is on... priceless. It's the season of traditions for me, and you know how I feel about traditions. Soon I'll be writing a bit about this, but today we're here because of yummy vegan grub so we're going to get straight to it. Some AMAZING holiday videos are coming tomorrow to both our youtube channel and our online program (members you're getting 3! Yup!), and I can't wait for you to see the little holiday makeover we have in store for you! We've been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and some changes are coming to the website too, including some personal stories in our About page, stuff I've never shared before but I'm always more daring and more humbled at Christmas so I'm getting up the nerve to write it! We're also creating an easy access page to our recipes, and the best thing yet, you can now check out what's new, and our latest blog posts, right from our home page!
