"Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
-Lewis Carroll, Writer

The refrigerator light goes on...

A smoothie can make a great breakfast if you're on the run and only have a few seconds. Use a base of non-fat yogurt for a good protein source and a lot of fruit for good carbs and fiber. I like using papaya or mango juice because they gives a good thick texture and are easy on the stomach.
