My rice cooker gets a great workout making steel cut oats with flavors. Some of the cookers, mine included, have timers on them. I include all the ingredients and set the timer. When we get up in the morning, the house smells of brown sugar and apples, or maybe peaches and cream (soy of course.) When it comes to oats, the only kind I enjoy eating are the steel cut. They seem to have a texture to them that I can sink my teeth into, at least compared to rolled oats. Nutrition-wise, I understand they are quite similar. I also like the thought that steel cut oats have undergone less processing and that has to count for something.

I also want to include a little something I learned about myself recently. My entire adult life I've disliked breakfast. However, for the past two months I've been eating breakfast and a midmorning snack. This has helped me to really control my terrible snacking time which is between lunch and dinner. At first I had to practically force myself to eat breakfast. Now I've sort of shifted my food schedule to earlier in the day. I'll admit that most nights I go to bed with my tummy rumbling a tad bit. I'm not starving but...This encourages me to get up and eat in the morning. Sometimes if I just can't take the rumbling, I grab a apple or something. I'm hoping that over time, I'll enjoy breakfast. Anyone else dislike breakfast?

I have a smoothie everyday for breakfast. It fills me up and gives me lots of energy for my day.

This mornings smoothie:
Banana, apple, pear, blueberries, red seedless grapes, carrot, and a little bit of almond milk, ice

I make them different everyday, depending on what I have on hand. Kale and spinach are great in them too.

Protein and fiber are key in staying full. I have ezekiel toast w/nut butter.

I also eat a high quality grain cereal (cold or hot) w/soy milk and fruit.

On the weekends I also make smoothies with veggies/fruit/nuts & seeds along with toast.

how much time do you have for breakfast?

cereal with fruit and Soymilk can be satisfying but boring

oatmeal is nice especially with a boost like dried fruit or bananas

if you have more time, breakfast burritos are always nice--potatoes, Smart Bacon, fresh peppers, whatever other veggies you like, quickly wrapped in a tortilla

if you have a slow cooker, Spark has some recipes for breakfast burritos that you can start the night before and it's quick in the morning then...
