I make the applesauce oatmeal muffins ..I put them in the freezer in a ziplock bag, and lay one out for a few minutes to thaw, they stay a lot fresher this way. I add a couple more ingredants to mine like cranberries, orange zest.
Thanks for that idea about the frozen kale in a smoothie, IMVEGAN. I also have a smoothie for breakfast -- low fat milk, yogurt, scoop of flax meal, big scoop of Dr. Smoothie, and frozen berries. I think a wee bit of kale would be a good thing -- I don't get enough green leafies even though I try.

I grew up in suburbia. Breakfast for me was a bowl of corn flakes or cherios. (Not very many choices in the 60's) Now I am always aware of my nutrition so I make sure I eat super healthy. Today for breakfast I am drinking a smoothie. (frozen berries, a banana and frozen pre-cooked kale, mixed with water and some agave nectar) It is really good. You don't taste the kale at all. The berries make it purple and the fruit is the dominant taste.
This breakfast is high in potassium, 196 calories, 1 gram of fat and 10 grams of fiber.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I wish I had known this when I was in college.
YES, AS A CHILD ON MY GRANDPARENTS FARM WE ALWAYS ATE A VERY HARTY BREAKFAST. BUT THERE WAS A LOT OF HARD WORK TO DO & NO IN-BETWEEN MEALS SNACKING! THEN I GREW UP & BEGAN WORKING. I GOT INTO THE HABIT OF SKIPPING BREAKFAST. NOW THAT WE'RE RETIRED WE DO A LIGHT BREAKFAST - MOST DAYS. WE TRY TO DO AT LEAST 4 HOURS OF WORK, EACH DAY, IN THE YARD. MOST OF IT IS WEEDING BUT WE HAVE CHICKENS WHICH LOVE THEIR 'TREATS!
We grew up on a farm - worked hard and ate heartily. Breakfast was often thick slabs of homemade crusty white bread with thick cream and sugar on top - we dipped the sandwiches in our very milky tea. Fast forward many years and my fave breakfast is peanut butter and banana on the whole grain toast - I try to find the seediest bread available and I usually go with Squirrely Bread - so good. I also have a lot of low-fat plain yogurt with fresh fruit and ground flax. I love breakfast!
