    I am usually not that hungry in the morning. I admit, I am a late night snacker, so sometimes I get by in the morning on some caffeine, possibly a green smoothie ( I enjoy making them!) and then have my breakfast a bit later. It’s actually been a bit chilly in Los Angeles. 55-60F is cold for us! (Don’t laugh, you get used to the temperatures…seriously!) So I have been craving something warm in ... Read More
