Breakfast Time …. Part 3

unnamed

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day … did I say this already? In our last two posts, Breakfast Time and Breakfast Time … Part 2, we spoke a little bit about why breakfast is important, such as starting your metabolism and setting your blood sugar right for the day.  I was looking at some recipes and came across another good breakfast idea for those days when you are running out the door.  These breakfast bars are easy to make and easy to carry. They are also perfect to carry with you for a late morning or afternoon snack.

I like the versatility of these bars as well.  You can make them with any nuts or seeds that you prefer and also change the dried fruit to change the whole taste of the bar.  I hope you’ll enjoy them!

Breakfast Bars

2-c. whole grain flour, gluten-free flour or finely ground filberts, walnuts, or sesame seeds

1 c. finely chopped dried apples, papayas or raisins

1-c. filberts or walnuts, coarsely ground

½ c. concentrated frozen fruit juice or fruit puree (applesauce or apple butter) or coconut nectar

1-c. whole sesame seeds

½ c. sesame, walnut or soy oil

2 eggs or egg replacer (2 Tbs. ground flaxseed +  ½ c. water – blended)

2-tsp. pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a blender or food processor to grind nuts, grains or seeds to desired consistency. Mix the nuts, seeds and/or grains in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine fruit, fruit juice or puree, oil, vanilla and egg or replacer. Pour over the dry mixture and stir to make a stiff batter – you may need to add more water or juice. Spread mixture into a lightly oiled baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Cool. Cut into squares when done.

A facelift

Light Reflections - Peonies $800

We got a face lift! Well, not a literal one, as you know we are much too holistic for that, but the inside of Wellspring Holistic Center’s East Stroudsburg office did!

In December, we had wonderful painter, Jonathan Welsh, of Welsh Painting, LLC help give Wellspring a pick-me-up with a fresh coat of paint throughout the space.  We are so pleased with the new look.

The colors are warm and inviting. A favorite is Benjamin Mooroomre’s, Dark Harbor, and we even got bold and painted the bathroom a funky orange

Who says, ” diamonds are a girls’ best friend?” We seem to be over the moon every day with how the colors are making us smile. We know, we are “cheap dates!”

That is not the end though.

Lying Down in Snow $3000

We had artist friends, Rita Baragona and St Clair Sullivan hang an amazing show at the center. Their work is so different yet so complimentary. Flowers and landscapes fill our walls and bring the entire space to life. Please take a peek and then come in for the real show!

All the art is for sale and we know you will love every one of them!

We don’t want to keep it all to ourselves!
