breakfast for dinner

Really, breakfast for dinner is one of my most favorite things in the whole world! Tonight, I'm having leftover pancakes with pure maple syrup, soy sausage, and a green smoothie (made with spinach, frozen peaches, and OJ.)

SUPER YUM.

Segue,

There is an article in my most recent issue of Eating Well magazine (the Aug/Sept. issue,) titled, "Organics: Are They Worth It?" It summarizes much of the research comparing organic to conventional produce, mentions a few other issues associated with organics (buying local produce over far away organic produce because it had to travel much less, and is thus better for the environment, even if it has some pesticide/herbicide residues on it, etc.), and has a handy chart at the end titled "Where to Put Your Money." (It lists produce in three categories: "Preferably Organic -- Most Commonly Contaminated," "If Budget Allows, Buy Organic," and "It's Your Call -- Least Commonly Contaminated." The article is very, very interesting, and if you can get your hands on a copy, read it!

the article sounds like a great one. I always find it hard to juggle all these competing perspectives.

Yummy! Ive always wondered what made people love breakfast for supper. I havent figured it out yet, but I dont care cause I love it! lol The article sounds interesting. Ive been doing a LOT of research recently, and am paranoid to eat any fruit/veggie that's not organic, even though some people think Im crazy for it. But they wont even listen to me when I tell them what they're eating on their foods!

Great breakfast and good reading. I have to buy bananas for the zucchini bread and haven't been to the store yet. Bananas are something I don't often have around for some odd reason?! Melissa is back at camp and hasn't made the lentils yet, she had it planned last week while I was away but there was a bunch of leftovers from the previous night supper that trumped a new recipe at lunch.

I'm a big fan of breakfast for dinner too. Mostly because of my love for potatoes o'brien.
great dinner choice

I love breakfast for dinner- I blogged about a tofu scramble the other day. I am making bluberry pancakes tommorrow.
