Best Berry Delights

Three things I am loving these days: All summer, berry-related. Berries are low cal, high in vitamins and antioxidants - a perfect food!

Kashi Go Lean Toasted Berry Crisp- Tastes just like Cap'n Crunch but it's actually good for you.

Fresh blueberries and fat-free Redi whip - The blueberries we've been getting at our local Price Chopper have been soooo delicious.

Cranberries- more specifically.... Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies


Recipe courtesy of Quaker Oats (slight variation)
