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 share a wellness smoothie with my kids for breakfast number 1 cup soy/almond/rice milk 2 tbl ground flax 1 tbl brewers yeast 1 scoop juice plus complete 1 banana 1 1/2 cups berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberies and mullberries when i can get them off our tree) little ice blend it all up and mmmm kids love it too and gives them a great start
breakfast number 2 varies oatmeal w/ raisins, flax, honey, nuts or steel cut with the same w/w bread or quinoa (cooked), mashed banana, ground flax and peanut butter-mmm or whole grain waffles topped with fruit and nuts or a medley of whole grain dry cereals, walnuts, raisins, sliced banana and fruit with a plant milk--that one is really filling sometimes i make whole grain pancackes w/ fruit syrup--today i'm trying a coconut, mango, blueberry whole grain recipe..mmm :) i love my breakfasts! and i work full time with 3 kids four and under to get up and out and to work each morning..so, has to be simple
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! : )

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

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.
