Hi girls- It's been a while for me too but still love this blog. I buy this Flax Seed from Costco. It is the best!! I use it in every recipe in place of eggs. Recently they have been sold out and I have had to cook without it. It actually makes everything taste better. I put it in our am smoothies too. I thought I had a pretty yummy whole wheat pancake mix but realized it was this that made them yummy and chocolate chip cookies just are not the same without it.
It has a two year shelf life - not sure how, but great for food storage, etc.

I wanted to post a pancake recipe that I made this morning, and was SUPER surprised how delish it was. So very easy and nutritious. ENJOY!
1 cup uncooked whole-grain oats (non-instant oatmeal)
6 egg whites, or egg substitute
1 cup cottage cheese
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 packets sugar substitute
Mix in a blender until smooth and pour into hot griddle. Top with warm maple syrup and fresh berries. (and in my opinion, i would add more vanilla and cinnamon. or apple pie spice. yummy!)
There are also some great recipes for protein shakes, lettuce wraps, turkey meatloaf, and omlettes. Most of the stuff that I've tried from the book is pretty good. Can't complain when you're not eating a burger and fries! (which of course i'd rather, but i gotta do something!!!)
