Tomorrow’s breakfast…today.

Whatever you do, don't judge this recipe by my horrible Sat AM photography skills!

Whatever you do, don’t judge this recipe by my horrible Sat AM photography skills!

I’m posting this now so that you have time to shop for the ingredients and can serve this dish for tomorrow’s breakfast (your family will thank you…and me:). This recipe is incredibly easy, fun and nutritious. Plus, the taste of fresh blueberries is a reminder of summer days, which during a week of single digits is always an added bonus.

This recipe was orginally coined by Busy Paleo Mom and was passed along to me by my good friend Sally. I made this over the holidays and loved it so much that I wanted to share it with all of you. I have made some tweaks to the original recipe, which I think bump of the flavor intensity a bit.

Since it wouldn’t be Scientifically Delicious without sharing a bit of awareness, I hope you will take a moment to read this article, which focuses on the massive amount of scamming that is done with respect to organic egg farming and distribution (thanks to LS for originally sharing this article). The take home message is, just because your egg carton says “organic”, it doesn’t mean that your chickens were happily frolicking on Farmer Hoggett’s farm. Instead, it likely means they were just fed organic feed.  Use this site to check out how your favorite brand scores with respect to it’s organic-ness.

I hope you have a great weekend and stay warm!!

P.S.- Next week is BPA awareness week on Scientifically Delicious…get ready!!!

  1. Love your modifications, can’t wait to try this recipe again with them! Also…just want to add that I think this recipe is great also with other berries, perhaps with some crushed nuts somewhere, too? :)
