Berries For Breakfast

The new year is  almost here, and with it a new crop of seasonal produce. It's time again to welcome...BERRIES!!! Berries are a forerunner of spring, and that is something to get excited about!!   As soon as strawberries, blackberries and blueberries show up at the market, I go crazy coming up with more healthy, colorful, sweet dishes than I know what to do with!

I will be very busy creating berry sweet desserts, snacks and breakfasts in the next months ;)  And speaking of you want to know what my current favorite breakfast is? {It changes periodically}. This one's SO easy and so incredibly packed with nutrients! And it is also absolutely delicious!!  {Isn't it fabulous that all of this can be true of one dish?!}...It is simply a bowl of nutritious, steel cut oatmeal with agave nectar, cinnamon and every berry I can find {along with fresh peaches or nectarines}, and a handful of chopped walnuts

I eat this many mornings, with a little vanilla rice milk on top, and it's almost like eating dessert!!!  It is also very pretty, so I thought I would take a picture to inspire those of you who might be a bit skeptical  :)  More on berries in my new cookbook...
