The Color Purple

Before my morning walk today, I compiled a bowl of Breakfast Pudding. Stir together 1/4 cup each: rolled oats, TJ’s nonfat greek yogurt, water:

About 10 drops Liquid Stevia + a handful frozen blueberries:

Got inspired outside…

…everywhere I looked, shades of purple!

35 minutes later, my “pudding” had congealed and was a little lavender from the berries…

…but I knew the hue could be kicked up a notch with some Maqui Powder (a complimentary sample from Navitas Naturals)

Antioxidant power!

Added the recommended serving size – 2 teaspoons

“Violet! You’re turning violet, Violet!”

The Maqui Powder has a very similar taste to the blueberries, so I couldn’t really differentiate between the flavor of the two. It was quite a delicious bowl, actually.

    Oh wow, that looks delicious! I have to agree with Sara K about the Aubergines, though 🙂

    Though I am SUCH a blueberry fan. Ugh, wish I didn’t just eat supper – I want a bowl just like that right now, but I’m too full 😛

    I was going to say eggplants, but then I saw Tina’s comment above and I have to agree with her, 100%: purple sweet potato is the BEST.

    That’s a lot purple, Lynn. Those frozen blueberries remind me of my occasional nights when I snack on a bowl of it instead of a popcorn when watching some late night flicks. 🙂 Yum and healthy. 🙂
