Usually by 10 or 10:30 I'm getting desperate for a "pick me up." I've never been able to skip meals or not snack between meals. If I do miss a meal I get really crabby and generally unpleasant to be around.
I saw an episode of Nigella Express a few days ago where she made a banana smoothie and with my new-found love of bananas, I thought it sounded like the perfect mid-morning boost.
