    Happy National Homemade Bread Day!!! :mrgreen:

    There’s pretty much a day for everything, huh? Well, at least this is a delicious one! πŸ˜‰

    To inspire you to bake your own homemade bread today, here are some of my favorite recipes:

    Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day

    In honor of National Homemade Bread Day, you can win a copy of Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Dr. Jeff Hertzberg and Chef Zoë François.

    Whether you are looking for more whole grains, whether you’re vegan, gluten-free, training for a triathlon, trying to reduce your cholesterol, or just care about what goes into your body, this book delivers.


    To enter: Tell me your birthday! Leave a comment with the month and day (year not required).

    The recipe for Chocolate Espresso Whole Wheat Bread in the book is now available for reprint and sounds so incredibly delectable, I just had to share it with you. If someone would like to make the cupcake version for me, I’d be ever so grateful! πŸ˜‰

    And now onto breakfast!


    For breakfast, I made a mushy bowl of oats with the help of some Raisin Bran, which the company mailed to me to enjoy. I’ve always loved Raisin Bran– even as a kid. There’s just something about those thin, crispy bran flakes and sugar-covered raisins!

    In the mix:

    • 1/4 cup oats
    • 1/2 cup Raisin Bran
    • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
    • 1/4 cup vanilla soy milk
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
    • Raisins


    With iced coffee:

    My birthday is February first, and Super Bowl is always on my birthday weekend. Did you know that out of 23 randomly chosen people, there is more than a 50% probability that two people share the same birthday? Crazy huh? I bet there are a lot of bday share-ers above me!
