a good day starts

with a good breakfast...
and since i found this Mexican gigantic

Moras negras

[look at their size compared to my hand!]

so i decided to use them in a


all the ingredients here are very healthy food
i linked some of their benefits
please click and read them!

every day i realize more the importance of
feeding oneself with the proper foods
the chemistry in our bodies reflects in every
aspect of our lives... i many times indulge in
not so very healthy food... but it is comforting
to notice that after eating healthier food for
as little as 1 or 2 weeks, i start feeling with
more energy, lighter, and even happier...
mmm, body chemistry!

now for that delicious healthy breakfast


1 cup of low-fat (1%) Kefir milk
1/2 cup (or more) of delicious blackberries
1/4 cup of walnuts
1 tablespoon of Maple syrup

just cut the berries if the are too big
and mix them with the Kefir milk
chop the walnuts and sprinkle with the maple syrup

i use Grade B maple syrup, which is less processed than
grade A, but has this nutty almost "tree-like" flavor
mmm, and has to be Canadian or from Vermont
the experts in maple syrup regions

oh, mouthwatering!

and here some healthy alternatives
in case you don't find the ingredients

if you don't have Kefir milk, use low or fat-free yogurt
if you don't have berries, use any other chopped fruit
if you don't have walnuts, use any other nut
if you don't have maple syrup, use regular bee honey

and this is delicious as a dessert too!
