Banana Milk


You can easily get off the dairy milk and even cut back on the fat and sugar in many nut milks but making your own quick banana milk. Super tasty.

Blend one ripe banana with 1 cup of cold water and optional drop of vanilla. That’s it!

Oatmeal vegan no oil

Willy’s Big Bowl


1 cup of rolled oats (not instant oats)
2 cups water
1/8-1/4 cup of Grape Nuts for crunch (if I have them)
1 tbsp milled flaxseed
banana milk (or you can use unsweetened almond milk or some other non-dairy milk)
1/2-1 cup of defrosted sliced strawberries in a big bowl. Feel free to use other fruit like blueberries and bananas.

Cook oatmeal as per instructions (I use microwave for 6 minutes). I let mine cool in the fridge for at least an hour before adding the other ingredients.

Cereals are whole wheat based without many ingredients, in Canada and hopefully you can find them as well. Strawberries are fresh in season and frozen the rest of the year. I buy frozen sliced strawberries and put them in a container in the fridge the night before to thaw.

I eat this everyday. An occasional variation is buckwheat pancakes or tofu scramble.

Bonnie has a cup of whole grain rice krispies, 1/2 cup rolled oats, no fat soy milk and a banana. We also have organic flakes by Nature’s Path.

No Fat Hash Browns

blended chopped no oil hash browns

-5 (or more) of your favourite potatoes eg. Russet potatoes, medium size. The number and type of potato is up to you, enogh to fill 1/2 – 2/3 of the blender (I use Vitamix).
Ketchup or your favourite condiment

Chop up some potatoes (no peeling) into quarters or less, then add to your blender and fill with water past the level of the potatoes. I use my Vitamix. Blend until they are chopped up like hash browns.

Strain the potatoes in a strainer and press out as much water as you can with your hands. Then add potatoes to non stick baking pan lined with Silpat baking sheet or parchment paper, and bake at 450F until crispy, about 30-40 minutes depending on how much water was squeezed out. I scrape the pan once or twice as they cook to flip them over. Sometimes I turn on broil towards the end if you want them extra crispy – be sure to monitor during the broil phase so they don’t burn. Add seasoning salt (just an example, find the healthiest option) to taste if desired.
