Pomegranate seeds over granola and lactose-free milk. Removing them from the whole fruit is labor intensive, but my wife willingly tackles that chore. I've also enjoyed the seeds sprinkled over warm organic quinoa.
We bought a half-dozen large ones last month at Costco Wholesale in the Teterboro Landing Shopping Center, and enjoyed the crunchy seeds with sweet potatoes, granola, quinoa or eaten by themselves.
On Monday, the Teterboro Costco was selling a box of 6 large California Pomegranates (a total of 9 pounds) for $13.99, a dollar less than we paid in November.
Blackberries are another great fruit, and I found them on sale a week ago at the Whole Foods Market in the Bergen Town Center in Paramus -- three 6-ounce containers for $5.
These Driscoll's berries were from Mexico (but not organic), and I enjoyed them over granola, in a fruit salad and eaten out of the container after washing them.

Two pounds of Whole Foods' Responsibly Farmed Shrimp mean you get more than 50 pieces that have been shelled and deveined, and are ready to cook.

Big-eye Ocean Perch were $3.99 a pound at the Super H Mart, 321 Broad Ave. in Ridgefield, the Korean chain's biggest supermarket in Bergen County. They are sometimes mislabeled as Small Red Snapper.
My wife seasoned three fish,, stuffed them with callaloo, a collard-like green; and added sweet pepper and scallions before wrapping them in aluminum foil, and placing them in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes.
I could have skipped breakfast before my trip to the Super H Mart, where numerous free samples of vegetables, seafood, beef and pork are handed out on weekends, including crunchy, vegetable-stuffed Egg Rolls, above, and Mung Bean Pancakes, below.
