How has the Healthy Breakfast Challenge been going for everyone?? We have been having some major fun here. My roommates and I enjoyed a baked pumpkin French toast casserole, a la Chocolate Covered Katie, on the weekend. I used xylitol and stevia to sweeten and my non-veggie, regular-eating roomies didn't even detect the different sweeteners or the tofu used. It was a hit! Yeah, it didn't come out too cleanly, but it tasted great...

We're moving into the season of constant food...and most of it isn't good for you! As winter falls upon us (well, at least it is here in Calgary!) and Christmas draws ever closer (egg nog lattes are in Starbucks now! Along with the red Christmas cups!) and our neighbours to the south are approaching their Thanksgiving holiday also, it is hard to stay on track with your eating every day. Rather than battling all the temptations that come your way, try one thing in these coming months: Eat a healthy breakfast.
