I was just doing something that made me think of this: What other great ideas do other providers do that help save time or avoid waste? <BR> <BR> I peel over ripe bananas and freeze them instead of throwing them away, and when I have a couple I make smoothies for snack with the kids. <BR> <BR> 2 bananas, 1 cup of yogurt, some milk and some frozen berries in a blender YUM!!
