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.
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)
