Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are plentiful this time of year. This recipe is a great way to sneak grains into your daily diet and get whole foods in every meal. This breakfast treat has very little sugar and will get your day started off right.

2 cups organic couscous1 cup organic apple juice
1 cup filtered water
1 organic cinnamon stick
1 cup organic strawberries, washed and sliced
1/2 cup organic raspberries, washed
1/2 cup organic blueberries, washed
1 teaspoon organic cinnamon
1 Tablespoon fresh organic mint, chopped finely
Fresh mint leaves, to garnish

1. Place couscous in a bowl. Pour apple juice and water in a saucepan and add the cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, and then pour over couscous. Cover bowl with a towel or sushi mat and leave for about 5 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed. Remove cinnamon stick and fluff couscous with a fork.

2. Add mint and berries to the couscous. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Toss gently.
3. Place in bowls and garnish with mint leaves.

-Use cranberry juice instead of apple juice
-Add orange zest
-Serve with a dollop of Lemony-Lime Yogurt from the Healthy Meals to Stay Slim and Centered eBook.
