I had today off! I hope you did, too. In celebration of the day, we started out at a local bakery. And while I’d love to extoll the virtues of the bakery, things went a little off the rails.
I ordered a date muffin. And, in my defense, it had an ingredients list taped below it. Annnnnd those ingredients did not include nuts.
But the muffin did, in fact, have nuts. Fortunately, I realized it and got antihistamines in me in time. Unfortunately, I ended up drowsily sleeping off much of the rest of the day. Fortunately, I had the day off. So all’s well that ends well.
I do, however, want to invoke the right to a minor rant. To all folks who sell food, please, please, please keep your ingredients list current. If you add nuts to a dish, change the ingredients. Put it on the menu. It’s not a minor thing.
End rant. Anyway, I decided it was a good chance to share my regular breakfast. It would be a stretch to call this a recipe. But this is too easy, too delicious, and too power-packed not to share.
All I do is microwave frozen berries and toss it with yogurt. It’s so much less expensive than buying individual containers. There’s also less sugar. It’s an all around winner.
Add whatever strikes your fancy. Nuts (don’t give them to me), raisins, a banana, some granola. Dark chocolate. You know, do what you do.
1 Cup Frozen Berries (I usually use a mix of strawberries and blueberries, depending on what’s on sale)
1 Cup Yogurt (I use Greek, but, again, whatever suits you)
(1) Microwave berries until they begin to disintegrate. In my microwave on medium power, this is about one and-a-half minutes for small berries like blueberries, and two and-a-half for larger berries like strawberries.
(2) Add Yogurt. Mix to taste.
(3) Add fun toppings. (Optional)
Girl, I do this with jam! Just stir a tablespoon or two into a bowl of plain yogurt. Bonus points if the jam is free because your workplace stocks snacks and PB&J fixin’s.
