Courtney Caughey: Try something new for breakfast this week

NEW CASTLE — So, I don't know much about veganism, but I came across the blog of Angela Liddon when I was searching the web for posts on running.

I completed my first 5k race on March 17 and will be competing in my next race on May 5, but that's besides the point.

Angela Liddon writes a vegan recipe blog called "Oh She Glows." I am very intrigued with the recipes published on her site, as well as with her personal story of battling an eating disorder and finally finding happiness with her body image. She is a very inspiring person.

Liddon's most recent blog post, "Inside My Vegan Pantry," is a detailed inventory of the ingredients found in the kitchen of a vegan. Complete with beautiful photos, Liddon even provides a printable list of what she keeps in stock at her home. If you're like me, and you don't know much about veganism, her post makes for a great introduction, even though I don't think that was the intent.

Read "Inside My Vegan Pantry" at http://ohsheglows.com/2012/04/09/my-vegan-pantry/.

Within the post, Liddon also mentions a recipe for Raw Buckwheat Porridge. Her photos of the porridge make me drool! I have to try this dish. Best of all, I think it will fit nicely into my morning routine as it can be prepared in only 10 minutes and can be made ahead of time.

The ingredients in the recipe include items that I have never worked with, including Buckwheat Groats and chia seeds, thus I am truly expanding my breakfast beyond my usual cereal, Egg Beaters, and um, instant oatmeal.

If you're interested in trying something new as well, get the porridge recipe at http://ohsheglows.com/recipage/?recipe_id=6002173.

And while you're at it, read more of Liddon's story.

Happy cooking, or in this case, non-cooking!

    Remember my post a couple of weeks ago regarding MSN Entertainment's 100 favorite films list? If not, I'll refresh your memory. I shared which films I considered to be strong picks within the 100-81range of MSN's list. My picks included "Young Frankenstein," "Fight Club," and "West Side Story" among others.

    Hello and happy Wednesday to you! We're halfway through the week. Thank goodness! Yesterday, a friend asked me who was my favorite actor. I've been thinking quite a bit about my answer over the past day. If I had to choose, I would say Johnny Depp.

    I stood in line at the movie theater on Friday night, waiting to see "Oz the Great and Powerful" in 3-D. It was the first time in a very long time that I actually had to wait in line to see a film. As I waited, the crowd and a life-sized poster of a wicked witch, her face slightly shadowed, added to my excitement leading up to the start of this movie.

    I love when film critics, entertainment companies, movie sites — whomever — produce lists of their favorite all-time movies. I use MSN Entertainment to look up movie times online. The other day I was checking the site to see which theater in Boardman was going to show "Oz The Great and Powerful."

    I was young in the 1990s. I was born in 1986, so I was actually quite young in the '90s, but I still have a lot of favorite films from the decade.
