hey, there! hope you had a great monday.

my day was filled with the usual to-dos.. monday morning meetings, porting the pups to and from daycare, my weekly meeting at GPP, a workout, a walk, lots of water, not enough veggies, and some delicious french toast.

i recently received some of ezekiel’s flax sprouted grain bread and immediately knew it needed to be french-toasted.

this bread is perfect for french toast because it is very dense and soaks up the french toast batter (can we call it batter??) perfectly.

the organic flax seed coating adds a nice texture and nutty flavor not found in your typical french toast.

i like pancakes, waffles, crepes, and biscuits.. but my all time favorite bready breakfast has to be french toast!

this nondairy, vegetarian recipe is high in fiber, protein, and vitamins B and C. it is low in sodium and sugar. it is free from preservatives and artificial ingredients. basically, this is the best french toast on the blogging block.

Mmm…this looks so good! I need to have a lazy Saturday morning to enjoy this.

Bready item: a good donut or cinnamon roll. It can’t be a yucky stale or generic donut. Fresh.

Favorite meal is totally brunch. I am a big fan of eggs benedict, french toast, bacon, and frittatas but waking up late in order to enjoy them.

Oh man, I love the idea of using flax bread, I haven’t had french toast in so long now.
My favorite meal is for sure Breakfast. I always look forward to it in the morning.
And think about it going to bed…I don’t know if that’s a good thing;)

Every time I try to narrow down to one favorite meal of the day, I get stuck. It just can’t happen!! I think I have a favorite meal for each type of meal of the day! :)

Breakfast is my favorite meal – brunch and brinner too :) I’m a big fan of pancakes and waffles, but should start incorporating French toast into the mix! I tried that bread too and loved how much flax was around the edges.

YUM! A while back I made a completely vegan french toast and loved it. Its been a while since I gave it a go. The egg does add something though- I need to try your recipe!

1. what’s your favorite bready breakfast item? Pancakes for sure…or biscuits….or waffles…or…I love bread

2. what’s your favorite meal of the day? hmmm probably breakfast!

Making french toast for dinner tomorrow night…definitely one of the tastiest breakfast options! I haven’t had it in a while, so I’m excited :-D

Yum! I wish I could eat that bread. I miss french toast :-( I haven’t found a GF bread that holds up once it’s wet, even if I make it stale first

I need that vibrating fork, however, not for $99!

Mmmm Mmmmm….I never ended up making it into french toast, though I REALLY wanted to but I loved it so much as regular toast that next thing I knew it was gone! haha!

I LOVE that bread, but I have been using it just to make toast. The non-international kind.

Maybe I should attempt to perfect my French?

[Especially because this seems to be the current blog world trend in breakfasts. And now that I’ve relaxed my veganism even MORE than I had, I can partake.]

This looks delicious. I love “breakfast” for any meal of the day. Nothing wrong with scrambled eggs for dinner! As for the bready type of breakfast? Bagels, with cream cheese and smoked salmon. BTW…belated happy “blogiversary”!

Favorite meal of the day is most definitely BREAKFAST!! I could eat it all day every day! And you know me girl, I love my pancakes! But really, I’m a breadaholic in general! I LOVE French toast, biscuits and gravy (or jam and sausage), waffles, bagels, donuts (though I wouldn’t touch a Krispy Kreme…unglazed CAKE all the way), though I’m not a huge fan of croissants, wait did I say biscuits already?! ;)

I’ve actually been on a bit of a French toast kick lately. I made some the other day with some potatoes on top (err, I mean PEARS!…wtf?!) I had no idea this Ezekiel bread had so much protein in it…I’ll have to check it out for sure!

And dude!! HAND OVER that pop tart sandwich, would ya?! Holy jesus!!

Yum! I love french toast, and breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day. Having breakfast for dinner is a pretty common thing around these parts haha, it’s just so good!

I love Ezekial bread! I’ll have to be on the lookout for this Flax variety.

Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal…I think it’s because morning is when I’m most alert and energized and therefore I’m just in a better mood in general :)
