Every Wednesday before homeschool co-op, we have a big breakfast (the kids have a snack-time there, but I want to make sure they’re well-fed because they can’t just munch whenever they’re hungry. Before I get in the shower, I pop 2 boxes of Applegate Farms chicken & apple sausages in the oven (YUM. I could eat an entire box of these alone). Lately, I’ve also been mixing up 8 eggs with a little yogurt, cheese & spices and pouring them in a buttered 8×8 pan, and putting those in the oven too.
Our other Wednesday morning staple is this Grain Free Granola on top of yogurt. I found the original version at Grain-Free Foodies, but I make it a little differently now. Nobody goes hungry in this house on Wednesday mornings! 🙂
Every other week, I soak my seeds overnight. I soak them in water with a little whey or sea salt (whey makes seeds a little sweet, I think, and I enjoy them this way!). The next day, I dehydrate trays of seeds ALL DAY in the oven. Someday I will own an Excalibur, but for now we use a whole bunch of electricity with our big oven. 🙂
I pour my dehydrated seeds into glass gallon size jars, which I store in my kitchen hutch (I have lots of jars of different foods). Then, once per week (usually the opposite week of the seed-soaking week), I make Grain Free Granola and maybe some seed crackers or granola bars. I store my granola in another glass jar. 🙂 On co-op mornings, we use 1/2 of the jar of granola (this is a double recipe from the original, but I like making it once every 2 weeks rather than every week! It lasts!).
