WHAT IS IT?

what is it??

This is in my fridge. I remember it was in a bag and the bag ripped so I moved it into a container. I forget what it is - I think wheat germ? But I feel like it is too flaky. Any guesses?

I like to bake. What I usually do is bake something, taste one or two, and bring it to work. Or I'll bake for friends & family. I was a healthy baker for a while and experimenter, but I wasn't too popular among the critics (Bill, family) - they wanted the real stuff. So now when I bake, I make the butter laden "good" stuff. This doesn't really go with my diet or eating values - should I go back to being a healthy baker? I started thinking about that today. For mother's day, I was going to make this egg casserole my mom makes for events. It is like swimming in fat (cheese, butter). I complain that my parents and the fockers bring fat laden junk, but then I serve it! So I was thinking instead maybe some multigrain french toast? w/ strawberries. Mmm. Then everyone is probably going to want to go out to breakfast after and get their omelettes and bacon. Hmm. What do you think?

  1. I'm going to guess flax seed.

  2. If it is flaky it is likely wheat germ.

  3. I say go with the french toast and strawberries, that sounds delish. Or maybe you could lighten-up the casserole?

  4. Flax seed meal? Almond meal? or as you say, wheat germ.

  5. I would say that it never hurts to "please the masses" besides, the occasional swim in fat can't be too detrimental to one's health...can it? On the other side, though, the multi grain french toast w/strawberries sounds really tasty and you won't have to worry about clogging arteries. Either way, I hope you have a very Happy Mother's Day!

  7. I love to bake too and modify some but not all recipes. Moderation, moderation. If you rarely have that yummy egg casserole (I can think of a cream cheese blueberry french toast dream I love), make it and enjoy. Treats are nice - when they are just that.

    Is it flaxseed?

  8. It looks like wheat germ to me.

  9. I'd guess it's wheat or oat bran. You could totally make a game of this -- Nutrition Nerd Jeopardy ;)

    I'm 100% for baking the best stuff for treats. Real butter, local milk & eggs, white whole wheat flour or wheat pastry flour, organic sugar, and high quality chocolate are my staples.

    The French toast sounds like a great compromise, or maybe balance the casserole with a bigger side of fruit?

  11. I have no idea! I only cook with the basics so something like that is totally foreign to me.

    And I think multigrain french toast sounds fantastic.

  12. Have you thought about pancakes with wheatgerm/wholemeal flour/bananas? 100% maple syrup or agave syrup! There is this brunch place we go to when we visit my in laws that serves this omelette that has spinach, tomato, and goat cheese - SO yum! Just some ideas.

    Also, why can't I sleep like Nick?? :o)
