I used to LOVE a kind of breakfast yogurt–Yoplait, I think–that was available back in the 80’s and early 90’s; it had chewy whole grains mixed in with the fruit and yogurt. Not mushy muesli flakes, but real whole grains with a chewy texture. They stopped making it. I was so excited when I found a similar yogurt in Italy–Danone (Dannon) con cereali–but that, too, was a seasonal yogurt, and after the winter I couldn’t find it anymore, either.

I got some soft pastry wheatberries at Whole Foods this weekend. I soaked 1 cup of berries in 3 1/2 cups of cold water overnight, then cooked them like rice the next day (heat to a boil, bring down to a simmer for about 50 minutes, until the water is absorbed). This morning I stirred them into a cup of strawberry Dannon Light ‘n’ Fit and it was perfect, absolutely perfect.
