It's almost like pie for breakfast

I've been meaning to take a picture of my new favorite breakfast, but a funny thing happens everytime I make it. I just can't seem to get away from it to find the camera before I have to devour it. So, imagine the layered yumminess of nonfat plain yogurt, Fiber One cereal (twigs as Pete lovingly calls them), and slightly warmed blueberries that I froze while fresh last summer. Try it. It's good for you and delicious too. After eating this I am much more satisfied than starting my day with a sugary muffin or just cereal.
Another thing I love to eat in the morning was inspired by "Breakfast Bowl" from the South Beach diet. I warm up some canned pinto beans, top them with an egg or two scrambled with a little onion and some red and yellow pepper chunks and I've got a protein and fiber packed breakfast. Sometimes I top it with some shredded romaine just to really gross out the kids. Don't mock it till you try it!

yum on the first one, gross on the second.

Sounds good! I can't wait to go berry picking this summer...I think we're going to have to buy a freezer for all the goodies I plan on stocking up on.

Have you guys ever had Chilaquiles? You would love them with eggs.
