So sorry that I’ve been slacking on dinner ideas and recipes! By the time I get home home from work, all I want to do is sit on the couch and eat ice cream straight from the carton.
… Then I eat a peanut butter sandwich. Goal for the weekend: prep some easy casseroles to much on throughout the week.
And anyway, I’ve been much more into breakfast. The only thing I’m really craving for breakfast lately is a yogurt mess with raw oats (I promise, I promise – the raw oats taste really good when they soak up the yogurt!).
My momma always buys frozen berries to use in her yogurt, but for years, the concept gave me the willies. I never even tried her yogurt messes because I thought the texture of the defrosted berries would be off. But then… winter came around and prices of organic berries seemed to skyrocket overnight (makes sense because they aren’t in season).
Berries are one of the fruits that I always buy organic because of the Dirty Dozen list – a great guide if you want to eat more organic food but don’t have unlimited grocery dollars. One day, I was dying for some blueberries but only had frozen ones for my smoothies… so I ran them under some warm water and added it to my mess. And you know what? It was just as good as fresh. And as cheap as a box of conventional berries.
Further evidence that moms do, in fact, know everything.
With Greek yogurt, raw oats, sesame-seed cashews, and defrosted blueberries.
Have a WONDERFUL Saturday!
