1/2 cup low fat milk or water

In a separate bowl, beat egg, then mix with milk or water and olive oil. Combine with dry mixture.

Did you know?
Dandelion root is a celebrated liver cleanser and one of the best remedies for a sluggish, congested, and toxic liver. A clean liver supports the health of the skin. Dandelion root can increase bile flow, causing the liver to produce more bile to send to the gall bladder. It also acts directly on the gall bladder, causing it to contract and release stored bile, benefiting liver congestion, bile duct imbalances, and gallstones.
A tea can be made from the root by adding about 4 tablespoons of dried herb to 1 quart of water; cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Or, you can "cheat" and purchase Organic Dandelion Root Tea.
