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.

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.

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