My oldest has been drinking a combo juice; orange, banana and strawberry, I think it is.

I think people are reading WAY too much into her expression. It's like pointing out that there are neither cats nor dogs falling from the sky when someone says "It's raining cats and dogs". It's just an expression for (in this case) a more substantial breakfast than usual for egd's family.

ETA: Given that my breakfast is usually just a bowl of cereal, a breakfast of ham, eggs, and fruit would be a "big bad breakfast". Big referring to it being substantial, bad referring to it being awesomely yummy.

If you're only going to use the blender replacement for smoothies, I highly recommend the Magic Bullet (which is on informercials, but I bought mine at Kohl's and they have them elsewhere). They make a great smoothie, although I've never found it to be as great at everything as the infomercial claims :)

Still I bought mine primarily for smoothies and it works great for those.

You can do a quick smoothie with a bit of plain yogurt, some milk, and bananas and strawberries or blueberries (and you can get blueberries frozen throughout the year--the frozen ones work pretty well in a smoothie). You can adjust the fat content depending on the kind of yogurt and milk you use--I typically use non fat of both, but obviously with kids you don't need to.

Also, you can use orange juice and ice as the liquid base (rather than yogurt and milk), and then just add whatever fruit she likes. Also apple juice. Probably grape juice (I'd go with white, tho, cuz I'm not sure how much I'd like a dark purple smoothie! LOL)

Anyway, the reason I mentioned the Magic Bullet is that it is fairly small so it doesn't take much counter space if you leave it out and if you don't, it's easy to get out and put away.

Well, I guess if you're talking about a girl who won't eat ANY breakfast, I think what you described is fairly represented as a "big/bad" (large mounds of food) :)

And I would describe your breakfast that way simply as a means of dissuading me from the idea that this is a good way to eat daily :) Kind of how I don't buy bacon much because I've never really convinced myself that a pound of it isn't one serving ;)
