Yogurt obsession


Do you ever go through a phase with a certain food? During the summer, I craved some cruncy bean sprouts everyday. I can pop them like pills! Not a bad habit to have since it's not candy. :P Then in the wintertime, I craved for starchy food, like steamed sweet potatoes and microwaved corn. But recently, I've been OBSSESSED with yogurt mixed with museli. After reading others' recipes of pumpkin oatmeal, I'm really curious to find out what would it taste like if I mix pumpkin with Greek yogurt topped with some grains. The verdict? IT'S AWESOME! I don't think I can 'stomach' a big bowl of pumpkin oats in the morning (maybe it's too dense for me so early), but as an afternoon snack, mixing plain yogurt with some pumpkin is a healthful meal. Heck, I even have it for lunch!
For this photo, I topped it off with some wheat berries. I looooove the nuttiness of wheat berries. I'm also experimenting with cooked barley. Barley gets a little mushy when cooked, so it's great for stews and soups. I actually mixed barley with some diced avocado, bean sprouts and some tomatoes for lunch today, but forgot to take a pic. :( I'm sure there'll be a next time.
Pressure cooker is da bomb! You can cook so many variety of grains and beans with it without resorting to the expensive already-prepared products. A little goes a loooong way.
What kind of food obssession have you had?

I'm obsessed with yogurt, too! I just started making it myself, yum!

I just made a big batch of wheatberries for the first time yesterday! I'll totally have to try them on my yogurt. Love the chew!
