It’s gone down to freezing a few nights, the heater is on, and I’m baking cookies to make it even warmer.  It must finally be winter in Arizona.  I’m not a big fan of breakfast or mornings, but I have a job and a stomach, so… Usually I make a smoothie in the morning; it’s light, it’s hydrating, no chewing required, and you can put a lot of healthy things in it.  But now it’s cold and I can’t produce my own body heat, so I want something warm.  Here’s what I’ve been making for breakfast:


Chia seeds, agave, sliced almonds, cinnamon, frozen blueberries, and almond milk.

1 Cup milk or almond milk

1/2 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh(antioxidants! So healthy!)

1-5 spoonfuls of oatmeal(Fiber! Complex carbohydrates!  But I don’t like chewing in the morning, so I only use like 2 spoonfuls)

1 spoonful of chia seeds(MOAR Fiber + Omega 3s. Feel virtuous)

1 spoonful of agave nectar(or maple syrup, or honey)

2 or 3 spoonfuls of chopped nuts(I like sliced almonds with agave, or pecans with maple syrup)

1/4 tsp of cinnamon(The taste and smell of cinnamon always reminds me of winter and the holidays)

dash of salt

Pour the milk and oatmeal in a microwave safe bowl.   If the blueberries are frozen, add them as well.  Microwave for about 2 minutes, or until steaming.  If using fresh blueberries, add them now.  Add chia seeds, agave, nuts, salt, and cinnamon.  Stir.  Eat.  Scowl with squinty eyes at the rising sun.  Accept that morning is upon you.

And apropo of nothing, Deadpool Vs. Hawkeye is more fun than a barrel full of drunk monkeys.  It delivers sarcasm, action, mayhem, and a whole lotta Deadpool antics and injuries.  Basically, all the things I read Deadpool for.
