    I love the idea of buckwheat for porridge!!! Great menu, as always!

  4. How funny Lisa, I have buckwheat groats soaking and I bought a watermelon yesterday! What are the chance? Thanks for giving me great recipes to use them!


  5. I just made the Buckwheat Porridge for breakfast, yum! Mine was really thick so I added a couple Tbsp. of Hemp Milk. I added up the nutrition info because I didn't want to imagine I ate that much. My tally came out to 485 cal. 17 fat and 13 protein for the whole batch. Thank goodness! I couldn't cope with 700 calories:o)

    Where do you find the artwork for your menus? They are as clever as the meals you create! I just love them.

    Watermelon Soup…mmmm, can't wait for July and hot summer days!

  10. Bitt … I just love her cupcake book!

    Nicole, awesome, what ingredients did you leave out to cut the calories?

    EM, they're antique menu cards that I alter. Usually they have a long list of meat dishes as the menu … I kind of like to imagine what kind of world we'd have today if we were eating a plant based diet back then.

    Sorry,hi its Sharanya,I forgot to write my name under the anonymous comment

  17. Hi Sharanya πŸ™‚ … The color of the sauce is what happens when the red tomatoes mix with green avocado … it makes a neutral brownish color (I wasn't crazy about the color, but it sure did taste good!) … and I calculate the calories and other nutritional information using the info provided from …

    You're quick. Thanks for featuring my raw cupcakes on your blog. It is such an honor, as you know I'm a huge fan. I'm hoping your ebook will get me on track with my budget. I have to blog about it soon.

    Awesome as always! πŸ™‚

    What’s the best way to process the almonds or does one just buy almond flour commercially?

    Thanks! Can’t wait to make these cupcakes!


  24. Lisa Viger says:

    k, I just ground the almonds in the food processor, although I think you can also use the pulp left over from making almond milks …

  25. I didn't leave out any of the ingredients Lisa. I measured them out by grams and calculated the nutrition info with Calorie King. That's what it came out to when I added them up : )

  26. Hey Nicole, I generally use … I had never heard of calorieking before, I kind of like the way its laid out … anyway, you might want to recheck your figures … on calorieking, just the 3/4 cup of buckwheat alone is 450 calories (437 calories on nutritiondata) … πŸ™‚

  27. Oceangoddess says:

    OH MY! I just made the pasta !! I think I have to have this every day now. nom nom nom!! πŸ™‚

  28. Marty says:

    Just tried the breakfast porridge this morning. It's yummy. I used chopped dates instead of raisins and stevia instead of agave, and it came out like cookie dough. Woo hoo!
