Banana Cinnamon French Toast

Perfect for a Mother's Day brunch... or any time really -- here's a healthy take on French toast. FettleVegan.com lets us in on the secret to great French toast: it's all about the bread. "Thin, soft bread makes for soggy French toast; too thickly sliced and it will be too dry in the middle. Baguettes and boules, cut into about 1/2 inch slices, are best. Having air pockets in the bread allows trapped batter to get gooey and gives you pockets of warm, melty cinnamon goodness. Mmmm."

Ingredients:
2 ripe bananas
3/4 cup dairy-free milk
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
6-8 slices of crusty vegan bread

optional:
1/2 tsp. orange, lemon, or almond extract
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Directions:
1. Mash bananas in a mixing bowl with a fork. Whisk in dairy-free milk, cinnamon, and vanilla until combined.
2. Pour mixture into a shallow dish. Dip bread into the mixture, flipping to coat the whole slice evenly.
3. Place dipped slices onto a pre-heated and greased skillet and let cook about 3-5 minutes on each side, until the edges no longer bubble and both sides are golden brown and crispy.
4. Enjoy warm with maple syrup, agave nectar, or fresh fruit.

Meat-Free School Cafeteria

Public School 244 in Flushing, Queens may be the first public school in the US to go 100% meat-free. Dennis Walcott, the school’s chancellor, said that he’s proud of the “trailblazing” school, which has 400 students in pre-kindergarten through third grade.

The school started offering all-vegetarian meals three times a week, then increased to four days, and now is meat-free at every meal. "We discovered early on that the kids were gravitating to our vegetarian offerings and we kept expanding the program to meet the demand," says school principal Robert Groff.

Mr. Groff noted that the school is helping kids stay healthy and on the right track, saying, “The founding of our school was based on health and nutrition and teaching kids how to make healthy choices in the belief that they would be more successful academically and in their life."
