OATrageous Oatmeals Kindle book is 99 cents right Now!

(UPDATED: This deal is now over) I'm so excited. This book by Kathy Hester has been on my wish list for months. I saw that Amazon has the kindle edition for 99 cents right now. I'm not sure how long it will last so I snatched it up quick.

It is supposed to have oat recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Meal Mentor Podcasts

This week I've been listening to the Meal Mentor Podcasts at I think it's fun to listen to other people's journey to come to plant based eating and how they maintain it in the daily life.

These podcasts are focusing on Lindsay Nixon's Meal Plans, but I think others can learn from these podcasts.

Plant Yourself Podcast

This week I started listening to Plant Yourself podcasts. His very first podcast was Lindsay Nixon and she was talking about her cookbooks and her life journey. I have three of her cookbooks that I picked up at Amazon when the kindle versions were $1.99. Just last week, I got The Happy Herbivore in paperback. It's such a difference having a cookbook on a kindle verses holding a book and looking at pages. I actually saw recipes that I didn't even see when I scanned the kindle version. I eventually plan on getting the ordering the other too in paperback also.

Howard is up to 98 podcasts and had some great and familiar guests. I can't wait to listen to more.

Yum - Cream Of Broccoli Soup

It's been months since I've had a creamy soup. I'm a little under the weather today and I felt like having some soup for dinner today. I ran across a recipe on the Fat Free Vegan website for Ridiculously Easy Cream of Broccoli Soup. 

There are some steps so it's just opening cans and throwing them in a pot. I used broccoli I had in the freezer.  There is some chopping and blending, but the soup came together pretty fast and I loved the flavor. I will definitely keep this recipe in my recipe box to try again.

Sorry I didn't take a picture, but she has a wonderful photo on her Fat Free Vegan website.

I found a bran muffin recipe

Isn't social media wonderful? I was finally able to locate a bran muffin on Facebook. The internet is great but sometimes finding what you want is like finding a needle in a haystack.

 The only problem is that they didn't remember the source of the recipe. I've tried this recipe and it's great. It's a perfect and simple bran muffin.

Bran Muffins

3/4 cup bran (I use wheat bran)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
6 tbsp non-dairy milk
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
 /4 tsp pure vanilla extract.

Preheat oven to 350
Grease muffin tin and set aside.
In a mixing bowl whisk bran, flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Add remaining ingredients, stirring just to combine.

Bran batter is thicker than most batters but not dry or floury. Add another 1 -2 tbsp of non-dairy milk if too dry.

Spoon batter into muffin cups and bake 15 minutes or until firm to the touch. or toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
