What are you up to this weekend, dear readers? I plan on doing a lot of skiing, a lot of studying, and (hopefully) make some room for R&R. I think the best way to truly relax and get a lot accomplished is to feel good physically and mentally. And you know what they say about breakfast being the most important meal of the day… I encourage all of you to try this absolutely delicious and super simple berry breakfast at least one morning this weekend. You won’t believe how good you and your belly will feel!

The other day I went on a Pinterest binge looking at recipes (check out by newest board ironically titled “hungry hungry caterpillar” for all of my delicious finds). I am not as much of a cook as I would like to be (although I try here, here, here, here and here), but I am certainly a lover of food and would like to try cooking a lot more. During my hours of mindless searching (when study breaks outweigh study time…oops!) I was inspired to create a breakfast experiment of my own. I tried the combo the next morning and it was remarkably delicious! For a sweet and cinnamon-y surprise, try the following:

Prep Time: 10 min (mostly due to seeding the pomegranate)

Ingredients:

– Non-fat plain Greek yogurt

– 1/2 cup fresh pomegranate seeds

– 1 tsp ground cinnamon

– a pinch of dry, unused coffee grounds

Directions: Cut and seed the pomegranate. About half of the pomegranate will yield a healthy number of the sour seeds. Add pomegranate seeds, cinnamon, and coffee grounds to yogurt. Mix and enjoy!

This was such a delicious breakfast, and something with tons of potential in terms of other creative combinations. I especially enjoyed the addition of the coffee grounds because it added a different, almost chocolatey flavor to the mix. I could also imagine making this same meal with yogurt, coconut shavings, vanilla powder, and cocoa powder for an even sweeter treat, or with yogurt, a little olive oil, small heirloom tomatoes, and fresh basil for a simple lunch-time version. How would you put a spin on this sweet snack?
