Honeyed Yogurt and Mixed Berries with Whole-Grain Waffles

This was pretty easy to make.  I made it last night, and kept everything separate (yogurt and berries and wheat germ) and popped a waffle into the toaster this morning.  It was pretty sweet, which I love, so I would have it again.

I put everything in a cup (tore the waffle) so I could eat it at the hopeful red lights in the car.  Having 3 more times this week.

As you enjoy this meal, you also enjoy antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C from the berries; protein and calcium from the yogurt; and protein, fiber, and B vitamins from the waffles.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 waffle, 1 cup fruit mixture, about 1/3 cup yogurt mixture, and 1 teaspoon wheat germ)
