As you probably know research shows that starting your day with a balanced breakfast is a sure fire way to jump start weight loss. This is because it gets your metabolism going while giving your body the energy and nutrients it needs to function properly. Breakfast is very important in our house. I always have a stash of breakfast options on hand because we have be known to have breakfast for lunch and dinner.
Today we had yogurt parfaits. Here is what you need for 2 servings: 1 1/2 cups of Greek yogurt (at least 1% fat), 2 cups of fruit, and 1 1/2 cups of whole grain cereal or granola. I layer these in beautiful dishes: fruit, granola, yogurt, fruit, granola, yogurt, fruit and granola. You can also make these ahead, i.e. the night before and cover them with plastic wrap.
Try these out for breakfast or as a tasty snack.
