Here we are in November and I can’t help but miss living in New Hampshire and Massachusetts and waking up to cool weekend mornings.  Mornings in New England were always the perfect time to make a comforting breakfast, and take a break from prepping for the holidays.  Between strolls among red, orange and yellow falling leaves or cradling a latte while admiring the beauty all around me, I could never forget how fortunate I was to live in such a wonderful place such as New England.

Now that I am living in California, we don’t experience the change of seasons here (it’s very slight), and we don’t have any bright-colored leaves or snow falling, or thick sweaters, jackets and boots to switch out in our wardrobes (more like get out your hoodie and that’s that!).  What we do have in Southern California is a lot of sunshine and barely any rain, and no excuses not to enjoy the outdoors!  Even though it’s not particularly cool or frosty here (the lowest average temperature here is 50 °F (10 °C)) I still like to bring back the feeling of New England mornings.  A recipe for French toast is just the thing for a cozy weekend!  Carrington Farms sent me the recipe you see below and it includes their flax seeds which are not only low in FODMAPs, but also high in omega-3s, fiber, protein, vitamin B1, as well as manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium.

I changed their original recipe just slightly (removed regular milk) to make it low in FODMAPs.  I hope you enjoy!
