Sky breakfast

Again, so busy doing my job as editor of a dog newspaper that I haven't had time to cook or blog. I've written before about what I cook for dinner when things get hectic (generally salads, quick soups, or "slumgullion"), but have I mentioned my quick and healthy breakfasts?

Here's one. Equal parts plain yogurt and applesauce (organic on both counts). Add a tablespoon or two of ground flaxseed and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Voila! A pretty good dose of protein and fiber, and it's yummy.

Some of my other favorite instant breakfasts:

1) Sprouted grain toast with smear of almond butter and mashed banana or thin-sliced apples or pears
2) Scrambled egg on s.g. toast with a slab of roasted red bell pepper
3) Smoothie made of lots of fruits, flax seed, vitamin C crystals, spirulina, in a base of soymilk or yogurt, or soy yogurt.
4) If I don't have time to sit down, it's often a few pieces of dried fruit (prunes, apricots) and a small handful of nuts on the run.

Doesn't it look like my breakfast this morning was floating somehow in the sky? T'wasn't. I had placed the bowl on a blue-topped table strewn with pine needles. Now I plan to eat a sky breakfast every sunny morning all summer...

Blessings and bon appetit!

Mindy...I'm embarrased to admit I read your title and thought (Skyy) Vodka for breakfast?

Of course, your recipe is healthy as ever!

That is a beautiful photo. I'm not a big yogurt fan, though did recently find WholeSoy & Comany Soy yogurt which I enjoy.

Thanks for the neat breakfast idea.
