7 Things to Add to Your Cornbread Tonight ...


While there are always the traditional things to add to your cornbread, today I want to introduce you to a few not so common things that you should add to your cornbread tonight!

Most people tend to think of cornbread as an unhealthy dish that should be shunned off forever but that really isn't the case!

With the right ingredients, cornbread fits into any healthy living lifestyle.

Today I want to share with you a few things to add to your cornbread to make it not only delicious but healthy too!

1. Jalapenos


One of the first things to add to your cornbread tonight is a jalape├▒o!

Jalape├▒os give cornbread a spicy flavor without providing too much heat.

I like to dice up one jalape├▒o and use about half of it in an entire recipe.

This way, it is spicy enough for those who like it hot, but not too hot for those with sensitive palates.2

2. Craisins


Another one of my favorite things to add to my cornbread mixture is craisins (or dried cranberries) - especially with the jalape├▒os!2

Craisins not only provide a sweet taste but a great chewy texture as well!

Cranberries are high in many vitamins and minerals, adding a sweet but healthy touch to your warm bread.

3. Chia Seeds

Chia Seeds

As a vegan, eggs were the first thing to go when recreating my traditional cornbread recipe.

Chia seeds can act as an egg replacement by combining one tablespoon of chia seeds with one fourth a cup of warm water.

After about ten minutes, a gel like consistency is formed, which helps hold the cornbread together.

Chia seeds are rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3s, high in protein and they also provide a hearty dose of fiber to your dish!

Vegan or not, try a chia (or flax) egg today!
