    Hello Everyone,

    I am looking for a shake or smoothie recipe for breakfast. I am horrible at eating breakfast but come eleven or so and I am starving. I need to find something that will help me make it to lunch with not too many calories. Anybody know of any?

    I also looking for a support buddy that is willing to help me out with loosing weight as I will help them as well. I am 27 years old and have to girls. An eight year old and a 3 year old. I am looking to loose about 40 lbs by the end of June. Anybody looking for just some extra support?

    Thanks everyone and good luck to all!!!

    This is my breakfast everyday:
    1 cup vanilla greek yogurt (greek yougurt has more protein, keeps you full longer)
    1 cup frozen berries or other fruit
    splash of milk or juice

    Blend until smooth, eat. I have one of those individual serving blenders and this is super quick.
    I think this hits about the 300-400 cal mark

    That looks like my breakfast without the blender.

    mbrower, you could throw in some ground flaxseed and add some Omega-3s to that without noticing any difference in taste. Or put the yogurt over the berries in a bowl with some fibre cereal on top, and it eat at your desk, if you are so inclined.
