The Sunday Chef

Matt sometimes makes me breakfast during the week when he’s back from an early run and needs to get to the bakery on time.

pancakes

Thus, I always repay the favor on Sundays, his day to sleep till noon nine : )

I try to make it something special – this morning it was Great Harvest banana pancakes with hot berries. Reginald’s Cashew-Nilla Butter on mine!

Plus a sprinkle of coconut and some hot tea

We have a busy Sunday ahead – 2 parties and 1 dinner with another Great Harvest owner. I’m going to have to plan my eating well if I want to keep an appetite going!

Gotta check out that cashew nilla butter! Cashews are so naturally sweet so they probably taste amazing with a bit of vanilla flavoring!

I think I could eat pancakes that look like those every. single. day.

p.s. I am way proud of you for being able to make the switch to tea. I think I would eat my feelings if I didn’t have some earthy-tasting dark roast every day, but girl you’re a champ. amen.

Keeping my appetite open for all my food events has been the most unexpected “problem” from food blogging!

It was a pancake morning in our house too! That cashew-nilla butter sounds amazing.

I always feel slightly panicked on days when I have multiple gatherings…it’s so hard to fill up on the food at one! :)

Hey Kath,

have you or anyone else noticed that Whole Foods has been out of Chia Seeds in the bulk bins? I went to 2 Whole foods and they were both out until October :(

I want to buy from chia seeds direct but the lowest amount you can buy is 4lbs…thats a lot if chia seeds for just me.

Do you know of anywhere else I can buy maybe 1 or 2 lbs? Also, if I were to buy 4lbs would it go bad?

Thanks! Happy Sunday :)

20 KathEats June 24, 2012 at 2:54 pm

I bought 2 lbs from them last time…4 is a lot. Did you search the whole site?

Reply

21 Tiffany June 24, 2012 at 10:50 pm

I just checked again I don’t see 2lbs…

There is no where to click on the site to search for different sizes. Am I not seeing the link?

If you find it would you link it? Thank you so much!!

22 KathEats June 25, 2012 at 8:27 am

Bummer, I think you’re right. Which means unfortunately I won’t be re-ordering either – 4# is just too much. It would take me a year + to go through! I’m going to email them..

Reply

23 KathEats June 25, 2012 at 8:30 am

Here’s 2# that’s probably less than the bulk bins, although I’d have to check, and it’s not as cheap as the 4# bag. http://www.amazon.com/The-Food-World-Natural-Health/dp/B000WV0RW8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1340630985&sr=8-1&keywords=chia+seeds

Anyone know what the price per pound is in bulk bins?

24 KathEats June 25, 2012 at 8:31 am

(Just bought that after reading reviews…FYI!)

25 Roxanne June 24, 2012 at 2:57 pm

What a pretty plate, colorful.
Chia seeds haven’t made it into my meals yet… maybe I should look into it?

Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this? Yummy and pretty. Hope you guys had a fabulous day

The wonderful smell of breakfast might have woke Matt up :) I know that it would have woke me up.

I might be in the mood for pancakes–and it’s 9:15pm lol How does the Cashew-Nilla butter compare, nutrition-wise, to other nut butters?

Hot berries? Silly to ask how you did that? haha Sounds yummy!!

I absolutely loooove nut butter, but I’ve never tried cashew! Guess I’ll have to put it on the summer bucket list ;)

I like that you warmed up the berries, great idea for a warm breakfast!

Don’t you wish every day was Sunday? I find that I always make the same thing over and over again during the week, so I use the weekend to mix it up a bit!

That looks so delicious. I wish I had better access to more fresh fruits.
