Do you get in a rut as to what to make for breakfast?  Bagel, doughnut, cold cereal, sausage mcmuffin... or are your normals oatmeal, over easy eggs with sauteed veggies, smoothies.  Before you roll your eyes and think if only let me tell you that it is an effort.  It took the boys slight allergy to gluten and dairy to force us to make a change.  Figure out a few breakfasts that you or your kids are good at and rotate them.  Since Tom goes to work at the crack of dawn and I am not a morning person I make a huge batch of sauteed veggies and put it in a covered bowl.  I saute onions, peppers, carrots, mushrooms and add leftover rice.  Then the night before he scoops out his serving in his dish and I soft fry a couple eggs.  You can also fry up some potatoes instead of rice.  Oatmeal is simple enough.  Smoothies...there are so many ways!  Here are a few from The Two Sisters.

Sunrise Shake
1 large or 2 small bananas
2 slices frozen peaches
3 frozen strawberries/blueberries
1 c rice milk
2 tbsp honey
Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  Makes 1 large glass.

Lime Sublime
3 limes, peeled and quartered
6 large golden delicious apples, quartered
3 pear, quartered
Put limes in juicer first then apples and pears.  Serves 6.
