Sugar Free Blueberry Sauce

 If you are trying to watch your figure and your diet includes sugar free foods, then you will like this little sweet toast topper.

I was playing around in the kitchen the other day and decided to make this blueberry spread that can be used on waffles, fruit, bagel, toast or anything else you would like some natural sweetness on the top.

I wanted something to put on top of my fruit dessert and this spread hit the spot.

Sugar Free Blueberry Sauce 

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries.
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1tablespoon water.
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice.

Bring everything together to a boil, stirring occasionally and let simmer for about 5 minutes. 

It turned out delicious and I topped my fruit, but I can imagine it on a slice of homemade pound cake. 

Oh yum.

Blueberry Grill

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I love cooking it and eating it. We never usually go out for breakfast anymore. I get up about about 30 minutes before Nick and I enjoy a cup of coffee and a lite breakfast. I remember the days we used to go to Bojangles or Hardees for biscuits and gravy. That was also 50lbs ago.

Down at the beach, there is a place near our stay called Blueberry Grill. It is located in a shopping area called Barefoot Landing. We see it often and I mentioned how I would love to try it one morning. So when morning came, Nick asked if I would like to have breakfast at Blueberry Grill. It will be something different from the ordinary. I threw on a sweater and jeans, pulled my hair back in a messy bun and brushed my teeth. I was ready in 15 minutes. You don’t have to ask me twice if I want a good breakfast

As we entered the restaurant, we were welcomed by friendly staff. They asked “would you like to sit inside or on the patio?’. It was a crisp 50 degrees morning and the sun was shining bright, so we decided to sit on the patio. 

They had heaters blowing from up above that was perfect for keeping the chill off. It was so nice and we could hear the birds playing in the planters and would often run onto the patio waiting on someone to drop some crumbs.

We ordered a cup of coffee while we waited on our meal. 

We both decided on the short stack of French toast made in a rich batter that was infused with brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Then dusted with powdered sugar. I requested a side of blueberries to add to the top of mine. 

I prefer instant grits but Nick likes what he calls “real grits”. So when he seen they had real stone ground grits, he just had to order some. I admit they were delicious.  

I loved everything about this place. The atmosphere, wait staff, and the food. It was a little pricey though but was worth it. We will definitely go back again sometime once Summer comes around and we take another trip to the coast.

Friday Bowl- Bursting Blueberry

Feeling blue? This might cheer you up. This bowl is chocked full of blueberry goodness and lots of nutrition. I took only a few blueberries and microwaved them for about 20 seconds. This made the blueberries burst into a juice. Then I added some healthy Butterfly Pea flower and wha la. Not only was this bowl healthy and filling. It was full of flavor and fun to eat.

I have decided to reserve each Friday to share some of my creative food bowls. I have been eating these at least 3 times a week and I feel great. They are easy, healthy and fun. This is part of my new "Clean Eating" Plan. Wish me Luck.
