For breakfast, I like to make what I call my half & half smoothie. In a blender, I put 1/2 cup of milk (or Greek yogurt, if you want it thicker), 1/2 cup of orange juice, 1/2 cup of cooked steel-cut oatmeal (I make mine at night with raisins or prunes and refrigerate it), 1/2 banana (usually frozen), and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. I whirl all of these ingredients together, pour into a pretty container and drink as I travel. I also bring along with me a handful of walnuts--yummy! On other days, I put into a blender a couple of chunks of watermelon, about 4-6 frozen strawberries, a big chunk of peeled cucumber and a fresh basil leaf or two. Whirl away, and you have a semi-sweet, good-for-your drink. Along with this smoothie, I will usually have a boiled egg or a bowl of cereal (or oatmeal or Malt-o-Meal) with milk and cinnamon and nuts sprinkled on top in order to get my protein and carbs!
