Breakfast Smoothie

If you are often in a hurry in the mornings and don't have time to make yourself breakfast, this is a quick solution. The night before, add whatever fruit you want to make your smoothie from to you blender and place it in the refrigerator. The next morning, all you have to do is add a few ice cubes, push a button, and you have a healthy, nutritious, and portable breakfast.

Applesauce with Cranberries

If you're like me, you don't wake up in time to make yourself a full breakfast in the morning. This is a nice alternative to the usual oatmeal or cereal (and much better for you than most cereals!).
Core and peel 4-5 large apples and place in a slow-cooker. Add 1 cup of cranberries and 1/2 cup of water. Cook on low heat for about 6 hours. Blend to smooth out the sauce and store in the fridge.

Not fond of cranberries or just want to mix things up? Try substituting half if your apples for pears! Don't have a slow cooker? You can cook this on the stove in a heavy soup pot with a lid instead.
