Remember in the Matrix when one of the characters is talking about how he’d rather be in the Matrix tasting steak than in the real world eating grits?
That’s sometimes how I feel about food knowledge (where it comes from, what’s in it, how it’s produced, etc.). Once I started asking questions about what I was eating I had more and more questions.
I used to be able to buy any kind of fruit at any time of the year in the supermarket because I didn’t care enough to notice the differences in flavors and freshness, and the effect shipping a fruit across the world has on its quality.
Quality of fruit is what brings me to my point. I miss blueberries in the winter. I miss them so, so much. I recently discovered Greek yogurt (don’t know how I’d missed it my whole life!) and I can’t get enough of Greek yogurt pots covered in granola, honey and fresh fruit.
I always put it in a wine glass because it seems like such a special treat when I do that! My husband requests a pot any time we have Greek yogurt and fruit in the house, which is almost every day now.
Oh, you want a recipe? I have one for once!
Take a small wine glass, cup or bowl and drizzle honey around the sides so it will drip down to the bottom.
Put 3-4 heaping tablespoons of Greek yogurt in the cup. Top with 2 table spoons of granola and a big handful of fresh berries. My favorites are blueberries and strawberries, but it’s also great with raspberries and blackberries in the mix as well.
Drizzle a small amount of honey over the top and you have yourself a great breakfast, mid-morning snack or after-dinner treat.
(This breakfast was great, but I’d eaten all the fruit so it was a honey, granola, yogurt pot!)
This dish works for any time throughout the day because of its natural, creamy sweetness.
I’m happy to live real life now but once winter comes and the berries are out of season I might vote for the Matrix again …
