I don't have a yogurt maker amazingly! I found a recipe for yogurt made in a crockpot from the blog Crockpot 365 and then I found a video from another source documenting the same exact steps on youtube! I feel even more thrifty knowing that I am utilizing my crockpot for more than just making soups, stocks, and other warm dishes.

Here's the link for the youtube video:

I also recommend checking out Crockpot 365 because it does have a lot of neat (and some inexpensive) recipes and life hacks.

I am usually in a hurry for breakfast so I usually make some kind of sandwich like a low-salt peanut butter sandwich on light bread or a turkey sandwich or something. At home I like to have breakfast burritos sometimes but if I do I have a light lunch because they have a lot of calories in them.

If I were to be able to relax I'd probably just like to have a bowl of cereal but I don't usually have time for that.

Of course always, always there needs to be coffee.

Sounds good!

I'll have to try it! We have bananas, I will put one in the freezer before I leave on my bike ride this morning.

Do you have a yogurt maker? How do you make your yogurt? (I do not have one, so unless someone has a non-yogurt-maker recipe for it, I may have to resort to buying it.)

I hear oatmeal is good for so many reasons!
I think I will add cinnamon to mine.

I hate cooked oatmeal, but I know that oatmeal is good for a body, so I tried this and fell in love with it:
1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt (homemade at less than 1/3 of the price of regular yogurt), a sprinkling of equal, 1/4 of a frozen chopped banana, and a cup of nonfat milk on the side... a good chunk of food, 19 grams of protein, and a good chunk of fiber for 320 calories!

Usually I'll have a yogurt, piece of fruit and wheat toast (or a Vitamuffin top) but this morning I had a pancake, slice of bacon, a glass of milk and 4oz of oj. mmmmmmm good.

That sounds good!

I will have to try that sometime soon. Or at least some of it.
(I prefer to eat my fruit, rather than drink it.)

My favorite is:
regular oatmeal (no quick or instant) with raisins, a touch of no-trans-fat spread of some sort, and cinnamon emoticon much like an oatmeal cookie emoticon
8 oz. milk emoticon
4 oz. orange juice emoticon
a mug of mocha...half regular coffee + half decaf + a little cocoa + a little sweet + a little milk + a bit of vanilla emoticon
I don't worry as much about the total calories for breakfast as I do for meals later in the day. emoticon

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Dear God, please help me to remember that there is nothing that can happen to me that You have not permitted, and that if You have permitted it, You are right with me as I make my way over, under, around, or through it.

My favorite, when there is time, is 1 egg plus 1 egg white, scrambled, with spinach, mushrooms, cheese and sometimes ham bits, rolled in a tortilla. It seems like a pile of food stretched out in a tortilla, and stays with you quite awhile.

A recent find is a frozen Jimmy Dean turkey sausage, egg white, and cheese, on a multigrain muffin (like a sausage, egg Mcmuffin), only very lean. Very filling too! Delicious!

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Do you have a favorite breakfast?

Oatmeal is cheap, but it's not my favorite.

I prefer eggs
or Cheerios (with cinnamon, milk, and a real apple)
or sometimes yogurt and fruit
