    I haven’t made any of these recipes, but, in order to promote people eating more plants, I recently posted on my personal page about savory oats. Many people, my mother for one, refuse to eat sweet things for breakfast and insists the only true breakfast is a savory one (eggs, bacon, you get the idea). I really think if more people got on the savory oats train and posted more about them, more meat-eaters would be interested in a more plant-based eating lifestyle. Just an idea, it’s your page/website/email chain etc. Love your page and so far the family has loved all of the recipes I’ve made from you. Your recent “news” doesn’t change that I love your recipes. You do you!
