Of Cheerios and Blueberries

Thursday, July 16, 2009

I wanted to write about what I have been having for breakfast the last few days. We were given a gallon size freezer bag of fresh, home grown blueberries. I washed them and then put half in the fridge and the other half in the freezer. I pondered for a couple of days what to do with them. Should I make blueberry muffins? Should I make blueberry turnovers? I really didn't know what to do. I didn't want to blow my calories out the roof, but knew that blueberries are very good for you. They are loaded with antioxidants. So, one morning a couple of days later I decided to just throw a 1/2 cup onto the top of my Cheerios. WOW! They were so good. They added a nice touch to my Cheerios and I found a solution to my blueberry problem (if it could be called a problem). Needless to say, I told my husband about it so he gave it a try and he thought it was excellent as well. For about the last week we have been having Cheerios and blueberries for breakfast. I typically eat 1-1/2 cups of Cheerios and then throw about a cup of blueberries on top. I had to take the blueberries out of the freezer because they were disappearing fast. We were running low when the friend that gave us the berries brought us some more. So, we are stocked with about another 1/2 gallon of berries and are still enjoying every bite. YUM!

    You can also dry them in the oven or in a dehydrator and enjoy them on cereal/yogurt/cottage cheese year 'round. Yum!
    Way to go on choosing a healthy option!
