Look! Now I'm a Cooking Blog!

Because so many of you were clamoring for the flax seed pudding recipe, (O.k., a couple of you asked about it.) here it is. I double it and use half water, half syrup. For the mix in, I use peanut butter. This is one breakfast that actually sticks with me.


1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/4 cup water (some of the liquid can be sugar-free syrup, if desired)
1 egg
Sugar substitute to taste
Mixins as desired (see below)
Mix flax meal, egg, and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for about 45 seconds. Move the cooked part of the pudding towards the center of the bowl and add any mix-ins you want. Microwave for about 45-60 more seconds, depending on mix-ins (frozen fruit will need even longer cooking, as it will cool down the pudding). Stir and eat.

Possible Additions:
Fresh or frozen berries or other fruit (Low Carb Fruit List)
Unsweetened coconut
Peanut butter or other nut butters
Small cubes of cream cheese (any fat level)
Sugar-free maple or other syrup
Sugar-free jam or preserves
Chopped nuts
