If it wasn't for the calories, I would have creamed eggs on toast. Mostly I eat banana bread made with applesauce or toast with a piece of cheese or deli meat.

I bought my organic sweet potatoes at Whole Foods. Now I just need to cook them so they are ready for the smoothie. (I think canned pumpkin would work also.)

I'm terrible at skipping breakfast and all of these ideas are just what I needed. The sweet potato sounds great in a smoothie. Wonder if I could use canned pumpkin too.

I like dannon natural vanilla yogart, berries, and 1/2 c nutty rice for crunch in the summer. I just dont like eating hot foods for breakfast when its hot outside. I like smoothies too and your reciepe for sweet potato in them sounds great. I will try that.

It sounds like it would probably hold me until lunch time during a school day (breakfast between 7 - 7:20 and lunch around 11:45. I usually add brewers/nutritional yeast, flax meal and oil to my smoothie along with the protein powder. (no recipes here either)

There is a tv show called 'The Sweet Truth' on the Veria station. She made a variation of this one day and I thought it sounded good. As always I have to make my own variation. I don't think I could follow a recipe if my life dependend upon it!! LOL

At the time I tried it a nutritionist had me on an elimination diet that included a couple of protein shakes a day. There was some kind of truly nasty tasting fiber supplement I had to add and was desperate to find something to mask the taste. I tried the sw potato rather than fruit and really spiced it up. Ahhh, relief!!! lol

It reallly has a pumpkin pie flavor. You should try it sometime. I just bake a large potato or two scoop out the inside and put in a container. I scoop out mashed sw potato as I need it and blend w/an immersion mixer. One of these days I will buy organic and will be able to use the peel as well. Just not right now. LOL In fact, I just had the left overs from this morning. Perfect snack!

Your smoothie sounds good. I like sweet potato and pumpkin. I just never thought of adding them to my smoothie.

Some days I even double the recipe and keep the extra in the frig for weak moments during the day when I go looking for something sweet or something to snack on. I helps keep me on track!

I really like quinoa w/banana or peaches in the morning.

Unfortunately, I am hypoglycemic and have to have more protein first thing in the morning.

I usually have a egg over easy and I make myself a smoothie w/ Healthy & Fit 100% egg protein powder (recommended by a nutritionist), a mixture of water and hemp milk (adds omega's) 1/2 cup of baked sweet potato, a couple dashes of pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, stevia, and 1T agave nectar. I also add 1T ground flax seeds. It tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass. Dessert for breakfast that is high in protein and the sw potato is low glycemic. Perfect combo for me!!

I like the Van's Gluten free flax waffles with an egg on top, OR a smoothie with rice protein powder in it, or blueberry pancakes made with almond meal, or flax-almond meal muffins. (I also avoid dairy and corn so that limits me a bit more) but I really like my breakfasts. I also make plain almond meal pancakes to use as wraps for sandwich filling. They freeze well and reheat easily.

I was wondering if anyone had favorite meal combos, so I'll start off by asking, what's your favorite breakfast?

Probably my favorite breakfast is to take 3 oz of Yoplait Light yogurt (any flavor) and stir in 1/2 cup of skim milk. Then I add whatever fruit's seasonal (blueberries and bananas right now) and a cup of rice chex. The yogurt sweetens without sugar and adds an extra bit of interest to the taste.
