    Call me strange … but I like to eat about six plain baby Idaho spuds. They’re each maybe the size of a walnut. The skin is crunchy, the innards are hot and mooshy. Perfect breakfast. And No Oil! :)

    Porridge: 1/2 cup apple juice, 1/2 cup water, 1 tbs whole wheat flour- whisk together in sauce pan then heat until thickened. Add chopped apples, bananas, berries, seeds, –whatever you have on hand. Add cinnamon to taste. Fast and yummy.
