    I like me some rosewater as a flavor!

    • Oooh, great idea! 😋

    • Callie

      I’m dairy sensitive. How do you recommend counting non-dairy yogurt, and would you add more protein to complete the protein count? Thanks for these recipes!!

      • Hi Callie, are you eating according to BLE? The category breakdown in my recipes are according to the BLE food plan, which doesn’t make any distinctions between non-dairy and dairy yogurt. Same amounts. I don’t eat dairy either. A “protein serving” according to their plan doesn’t actually have anything to do with the amount of protein… I know it’s confusing. Hope that helps! 🙂

    Hi Katie, I’ve just come across your website and it’s so great. Thanks for sharing all of this!
    I was wondering what the BLE thoughts are on coconut yoghurt? Could this be substituted in this recipe? On this same line what about coconut in general (flakes, coconut butter etc), thanks in advance, Shell xx

    • Hi! I eat coconut yogurt sometimes on maintenance as a protein, but it doesn’t really have any protein in it and it’s calorically dense (a lot of fat) so I don’t have it very often. I wouldn’t on the weight loss plan.

    • Coconut products in general are considered a fat and so we don’t eat them with breakfast.

  4. I just started bright line eating and am looking for something to put some flavoring in coffee and thought about vanilla extract. I saw you used vanilla in this recipe. Is vanilla extract BLE friendly? Thanks!

  5. I like the idea of using chia as a grain here…where does that come from though? Are we really “allowed” to do that on BLE? I feel I’ve heard SPT mention it in some of her vlogs, I just can’t seem to find chia seeds as grains anywhere. Help…. 🙂

    • Some people who have issues with grains do it, I can’t remember now where I got that modification. I definitely remember hearing it from Susan at some point though. I’d ask in an online BLE support community. Sorry I can’t be more helpful.
