Two questions regarding an impending long, early morning commute and smoothies (in order of importance): have you found a "base smoothie mix" I can make in advance on Sundays (and possibly Wednesdays) for use later in the week that I can add frozen berries/granola to for a quick breakfast? And also, is there a badass (stainless steel, preferably) ~32 oz thermos/cup with a lock-tight sealing lid that you love? [more inside]

I'm never hungry in the morning. I can get down liquids, but the idea of swallowing food makes me queasy until afternoon.
I'm finding a bunch of articles telling me why I should eat breakfast if I want to be healthy and lose weight. I want to be healthy and gain weight. I'm 6'2 and 155lbs, I really want to put on some pounds! [more inside]

How do we control the excessive taking of food in our complimentary breakfast?
My family and I own and operate a Comfort Inn. We offer a free continental breakfast: coffee, toast, bagels, frozen waffles (you just pop them into the toaster), apples, bananas and a lemon cake that we cut up into small slices.
Frequently we have people who take it upon themselves to take way more than they need. We can understand someone taking a bagel to go for later in the day but these are guests who will take 15 extra plates, half a loaf of bread (I kid you not, just empty out the sack onto a plate and then take fifteen to twenty small packets of peanut better and/or cream cheese).
My mother believes that we should place some carefully worded sign next to breakfast in the hopes that people will be considerate of others as well as management and only take what they will eat. Too often people take because they assume they have a right to take.
How could we word such a sign without insulting the guests or make them feel like we're being rude? [more inside]

Where can I get oats in bulk near the Boston area? I'm looking to cut down my breakfast costs, so I want to buy something like this
. I assume that I could get it even cheaper than Amazon if I got it from a local cooperative/farm/something in the Boston area. Is that true, and if it is, how do I go about locating such a place?

Snacks to travel: I'll be staying with some friends who don't eat breakfast (and I'm the type who needs bkfast or I faint), so I want to bring some food that I can munch on in the mornings. Easy to pack, will keep for 4 days or so. I was thinking baby buckwheat pancakes, but any other healthy ideas would be great.

From a short story by Roald Dahl.
"Sir Basil was there before me,and Jelks was serving him with grilled kidneys and bacon and fried tomatoes."-Neck-
My question is about this kidneys.In the nineteenth and twentyth century,the wealthy people would have a breakfast like that?If so,what animal's kidney did they used to have?And they don't have it for breakfast now,don't they?Or Dahl says about something else,such as kidney beans?

I started making smoothies recently with about 200g frozen fruit, 1.5 cups of 1% milk, and a scoop of whey protein powder. I wedge some kale in when I have it, but I happened to be out this week. This makes about as much smoothie as I can comfortably consume. Normally if I eat breakfast (lentils or eggs or oatmeal or cereal or toast and jam or whatever) around 7 or 7:30, I'm good until lunch at 12 or 1 or even later, but since I switched to smoothies, I'm finding that I'm ludicrously hungry by 10am. As in "I would cheerfully kill you for the last quarter of your sandwich" hungry. WTF? Why is this and how do I fix it? [more inside]
