Yesterday at 5:am I had my first breakfast of fresh juice blended with spinach and frozen pineapple. After my treadmill run I had the rest of breakfast, or second breakfast.

It was sweetly warm and filling, and I was so impressed that I was thinking of variations all day long.

I have been planning to try textured vegetable protein, or TVP, ever since Laura started making “oatmeal” with it. TVP is like a smaller version of my favorite soy curls – it is a defatted soy product high in protein and fiber. Like the soy curl, TVP is cooked or rehydrated with liquid, and it takes on the flavors you use.

In this case, I combined the dry TVP with chocolate mint flavored coconut milk, and it cooked into a hearty bowl of hot cereal a spoon can stand up to. This tasty bowl of goodness is ready in ten minutes.

I cannot wait to make this again. And the seventy threeve other ideas I have in mind…
