Golden berries every way

breakfast, healthy

Golden berries- Apparently these little babies can help you burn belly fat – well, my belly certainly needs shedloads of that. Anyways, not being a dedicated Dr Oz follower I only found this out while doing a google search AFTER I had picked them up in Wholefoods this week. I will report back on any shrinking! I find them quite bitter so you don't really want a lot of them. I read on google search that they were produced on small family farms in Colombia ….mmmm

Nut and berry base to smoothie fruits of your choice

I added them to an amazing smoothie and also to an steel cut oat based muesli. Having just finished reading David Gillespie's Sweet Poison, I am trying again to cut sugar to a minimum – tough when you blog about baking. I am going to investigate using the fructose substitute, dextrose, in recipes and intend to report back. Meanwhile, finding it (dextrose) is proving difficult!

Golden berries in the bowl

I have to sneak some things into Mr N's healthy breakfast- if he doesn't know it's there he generally eats it drinks it, but green is a big give away colour!

Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
