    What a wonderful breakfast idea! Can't wait to try it out. Unfortunately I'm fasting again (72 hours this time) but as soon as I'm over it, I'll be getting to work. This is a MUST-Try! Thank you!

    If you can't find it in an local store, then I would try with Amazon (or other online shop).

    Example:

    How long does this last in the fridge? I cook small batches and rotate recipes frequently.
