  • Trader Joe’s sprouted rye bread dredged in one egg and grilled.
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 banana grilled
  • 1/4 cup almond granola
  • 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter

Even though this beater than ice cream smoothie was eaten at lunch time It would make a great breakfast on a hot day especially before a long run to keep the body cool.

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of soymilk
  • 1 cup of mixed frozen berries
  • 1/2 cup frozen spinach

Topped with:

A one plate wonder:

My best photo and pancake yet, organic fuel. I think I’m starting to get the hang of things.

And who could forget celebration pancakes? You should definitely make this for your children, significant other or yourself. Cause everyday should be a celebration!

Another photo taken in January of 2010, buckwheat oats and veggie sausage.

  • 1/3 cup cooked buckwheat groats
