• You make me sick! Who wants to eat a chicken’s menstrual-cycle, anyway? With the largest egg recall in US history (more than a half billion eggs) and another huge meat recall in the works, now is best time to ditch animal products, if you haven’t already! Replacing eggs in cooking and baking is a cinch, choose any of these options:

  • • 1 tbsp milled flax seed and 3 tbsp water = 1 egg (perfect for cake).
  • • 1/2 banana = 1 egg (delicious in pancakes/muffins)
  • • Ener-G Egg Replacer – follow directions on box.
  • • 2 tbsp cornstarch= 1 egg
  • • 2 tbsp arrowroot flour = 1 egg
  • • 2 tbsp potato starch = 1 egg
  • • 1 heaping tbsp soy powder + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg
  • • 2 tbsp applesauce = 1 egg (great in brownies)
