  1. I do eat vegetables for breakfast, but must admit they are usually in a smoothie. I’m not going anywhere, just choosing to blend kale, and other greens with a few of this and that thrown in for breakfast, which I enjoy seated at my kitchen counter. If I put in some uncooked oatmeal, my smoothie is actually filling until snack time.

    Since I don’t eat much bread, I’d have to eat my tomato without, or mix in the poached eggs with the tomatoes in a bowl, then dig in. Although allergic to mushrooms, your recipe for creamed mushrooms does sound tasty. Thanks for sharing your ideas, as I’m now even more motivated to have my breakfast veg in a different way!
