Breakfast of a Champion

Last winter I spent a few days with a friend on vacation.
She ate this almost every morning for breakfast.

 I like her. She's in great shape. I want to be just like her.
So this is what I eat for breakfast many mornings.

 1 - Banana
1 - Activa Light Fatfree Yogurt
 About 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch Cereal
And I sprinkle cinnamon on top - I like the taste and cinnamon has some amazing health benefits.

And I'm sure - one day at a time and one bowlful at a time,
I'll be able to run/bike/lift weight like she does ... right :)

What healthy, easy foods do you enjoy?

I'm really into smoothies rigjt now. We had to buy a blender recntly, and I've been throwing absolutely everything in there. It makes for easy meals around new baby needs.

My favorite recipe is strawberries, banana, a couple tablespoons of wheat germ, orange juice, raw milk, and flaxseed oil. If I'm feeling paricularly responsible, I add fresh spinach and some plain yogurt to the mix too. Sooo good!

I think just about anything would taste good in that beautiful bowl ... my diet could use some restructuring, however ...

My breakfast consists of a "Green Monster" smoothie in the summer (spinach, banana, oats, almond milk) & overnight oats made with yogurt & oatmeal & topped with fruit in the winter. And I throw ground flax seed in everything. And nuts. Because anything good is better with nuts! I LOVE breakfast!

It is wonderful to start your day with nourishing food.
My favorite is quick oatmeal, I buy quick Quaker oats and use 1/2 cup oatmeal and 1 cup milk. Cook 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave, stir and cook 1/2 minute more.
No pot to clean, hurray!
Then add what you like: brown sugar, craisins, raisins, pecans, dried apricots, dollop of light whipped cream. Not all of these, just one or two favorites.
