That sounds so good. I don't want to bake this time of year though. I hope don't lose the link.

I have a box of milled flax seed. I add a little to recipes like this.

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.

I had previously save the recipe for Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins, but still haven't tried it.

Have you tried any of these recipes?

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.

Corn flakes with honey was pretty tastey but now no parents around to make me eat breakfast food!

This morning I had homemade "cream of celery soup" over brown rice. Thick with veggies and flavor, very lo-fat. Yum.

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.

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!
