I just made a new recipe. I had some leftover quinoa in the fridge from another recipe so I heated it up with chopped apple, dried cranberries, cinnamon, milk and a tablespoon of chopped walnuts. I was surprised at how yummy it was. I think I will mix up another container to pop in the micro for tomorrows breakfast.

I love variety, so I'll have anything from whole grain cereal (hot or cold) with cow, rice or soy milk, soy breakfast sausage sandwich, fruit and yogurt smoothie, egg scrambles, peanut butter on toast with bananas. I just try to have fruit, whole grains and protein every morning, but I don't like to have the same thing everyday - I thrive on food variety.

I'm now in love with steel cut oats, but the prep time is killer! I don't really believe in microwaves...any recipes that can help as this morning meal is a great way to start the day!

Here is what I did this morning, and I think I will be repeating:

microwave-bake a potato, and cube it

saute chopped onion and pepper in a pan, and add cubed potatoe at the end to brown them a little.

I used just a bit of non-stick spray to keep stuff from sticking, you could use some water or broth if you prefer.

And a clementine to finish off the meal. :)

I use the plastic measuring cup that come with the immersion blender. I'm using a Cuisinart one that looks like this: www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-CSB-76BC-Sm

I like it a lot better than using a blender, it's super-easy to clean up.

LL - what kind of cup do you drink that out of? we don't have a blender (planning on getting one, last one broke with a hot pureed soup fiasco) but we do have an immersion blender. we don't have any very big cups though, and all of the ones we have are glass. i would think using an immersion blender would either break the glass or make a mess. right now i'm using a tiny food processor that makes a mess anyway...

anyway, i eat oatmeal with something in it nearly every single morning. ususally nut butter, blackstrap molasses, and banana, but lately it's been canned pumpkin, molasses, cinnamon, and dried fruit (figs or raisins). yesterday i had a green smoothie and fruit but that was unusual, especially in the winter. and every once in a great long while i go really wild and have toast with nut butter and fruit. CRAZY! : )

I like to blend:

some silken tofu
almond milk
frozen mixed berries
frozen sliced banana

(I say frozen berries because I can't get good fresh berries in PA in the winter, and I think they are fairly nutritious still)

I use an immersion blender to blend this right in the cup I drink it out of.

The older I get, the more dyslexic I get. It's really funny what I think I've read when I glance at signs, etc. I think one of the funniest times was when I looked at a sign that said, 'Horizon Child Care' and I read it as 'Hazardous Child Care' LOL

I find myself eating alot of the same things myself...makes life easier. My favorite breakfast:

old fashioned oatmeal...just slightly cooked or I'll leave it in the fridge overnite in a little almond or rice milk to soften.

fruit to sweeten...bananas, prunes, raisins, frozen blueberries etc.

1-2 tsp cinnamon...I've read it helps keep the blood sugar stable.

1-2 Tbsp ground flax seeds...for omega-3s. I usually buy this bulk at the health food stores and grind some up in a coffee bean grinder and keep in a tauperware in the fridge from getting rancid.

Great ideas.

During the week, I usually have some fruit and maybe some dry cereal (kashi or the like) or some raw vegies.

On the weekends I like to have some oatmeal with raisins and honey in it one day and some eggs or whatever the other day. (kind of a 'treat' day).

My fave breakfast is very unconventional. I'm a distance runner and I always go out at the crack of dawn. Before I leave I eat a cold baked potato, and when I come home I have a cup of soya milk, a cup of rolled oats, and a peach or an orange. Same Same. Every Day.
