Healthy Power Breakfast and Breakfast Drinks

I know the importance of eating Breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day. You should eat three meals a day, have 2 healthy snacks and drink 64 oz. of water. Here's a great meal to start out the day and give you a healthy way to provide the energy you need to make it until lunch. If you feel the urge to snack between Breakfast and Lunch you can eat a Kind Bar. I also have one between Lunch
and Dinner.

Healthy Power Breakfast

This recipe should last 1 week.
Eat some every morning for Breakfast. It's all I eat along with Coffee, when I'm concentrating
on keeping my weight down.

2 TBS Rolled Oats
1 C Plain Yogurt
1 tsp Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Flaxseeds
6 Fresh Whole Plums

Prepare this meal the night before.

In a Bowl: (I put them in an 8 C Pyrex Measuring Cup)
Whole Plums
Boiling Water
Cover and set aside for at least 10 minutes.

In a Mixing Bowl:
Mix well.

Mix well.

Drain Plums and Dice them.
Add them to the Oats mixture.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Cleanse your Body!
Lose Weight!

Here are some additional Breakfast Drinks. I've learned that we don't need large Breakfasts that are filled with Fat and Carbohydrates. Sometimes a meal replacement Drink is all we need. They fill you up and supress excess hunger. I always see weight loss when I use these drinks as meal replacements.
You can also drink them for lunch, mid afternoon or instead of a heavy dinner.

Here are some of my favorite Breakfast Drinks

1 C Fresh Blueberries
1/2 C Vanilla Yogurt
