breakfast options: smoothie & quesadilla

Though probably best not having both of them in one day, as the smoothie is incredibly filling (I had it for elevenses and wasn’t hungry for lunch… as someone who is a big fan of regular meal and snack times [breakfast, elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and maybe supper] this is a testimony to its filling powers).

And also if you’re going to object to the use of ‘quesadilla’ for something that doesn’t contain cheese – well yes, I can but agree with you. But I thought I’d run with the name given to it by the blog where I found the idea.
