November Breakfast Challenge: Days 26 – 30

December 2, 2013 | Breakfast Challenge | 10 Comments

Good morning, my loves and happy December!

How exciting! A new month and one of my favourite months, in fact! I love December. I love the holidays. I love the family gatherings and traditions. I love it all!

Ok, except for the mounds of snow. Have I shared the wintery scenes of London with you yet?

We got 70 cm in a single night. There’s a lot of snow, but there’s also a lot of excitement happening on A Dash of Meg today! Since November is over, the November Breakfast Challenge is now over, too! Which means…

The winner is announced today! 😀

But first! Let’s have a final recap of my breakfasts this past week!

November 26 – Chocolate Chia Pudding with Greek Yogurt, Mandarin Oranges, and Cacao Nibs (recipe coming soon!)


November 27 – Katie’s Pumpkin Protein Pancakes topped with local sheep yogurt and warm cherries


November 28 – Chocolate Protein Chia Pudding topped with local sheep yogurt, local figs, and pistachios


November 29 – Stephanie’s Orange Cream Chia Pudding


November 30 – Steamed local kale, roasted local peanut squash, and eggs fried in ghee and seasoned with pepper and smoked paprika


The November Breakfast Challenge (along with the September and October challenges I completed by myself) has helped me implement more variety in my diet, become more creative, and let my cooking skills go wild! I became more in tune with my body as I was able to determine whether I wanted to have a savoury or sweet breakfast and I was also able to step out of my comfort zone and try flavour combinations that I would have never attempted before like this one. I learnt that I definitely do like savoury over sweet foods and that I feel best when things are kept simple and contain foods as close to their natural state as possible.

For those of you who took part in the challenge with me, thank you. The participation I received was phenomenal and greatly appreciated. Although I will not be hosting a challenge this month, I would love to do another in the future because I enjoyed seeing all of your posts on Challenge Loop every day so much!

We had 32 participants in the challenge and even though I was blown away by all of your efforts and beautiful dishes, there can only be one randomly chosen winner.

And the winner is Miranda Koshelek! Congrats Miranda! You are the lucky winner of a Bob’s Red Mill prize pack, which I chose to include my four favourite items in:

– Gluten Free Thick Rolled Oats

– Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats

– Almond Meal/Flour

– Coconut Flour

Silver Hills Bakery will also be sending you coupons for free bread! 😀

Please email me at adashofmeg@gmail.com so I can get your prizes sent to you ASAP 😀

Again, thank you to all of you who participated this month! I hope to have another challenge in the future and would love you to join in again!

Did you enjoy the challenge? Would you take part in another challenge? 

See you tomorrow!

    Holy snow! I’m so jealous. How come Victoria never gets any. So not fair;)
    Great job on your Breakfast challenge. Seriously, I’m impressed.
    I think you’ve got me addicted to chia puddings. I’ve been all over them lately.
