Yogurt Breakfast Parfait
I know mornings are rushed for all of us; I get up early and start in on the packing of lunches and all that good stuff. But it's also important to grab a bite to eat for breakfast. I need to make sure I fuel my body for a busy day with preschoolers.
Depending on how quickly I get going, I have more time some days than others. There's also days where I'm not so hungry, yet I know if I leave the house without anything, my stomach will be growling by 10:00.
Not so much even a recipe, but I love having these parfaits for my morning meal. I'm not generally a big eater so these will keep me feeling full until lunch time. I love making a batch of granola on the weekends to last us through the week or so, even the kiddos enjoy these for breakfast or snacks.
While I've tried making my own yogurt before, it's just not feasible right now for me to do so. We love purchasing this particular brand, it's locally made and we've even had a chance to visit their dairy where they produce their products.
During the summer months we love fresh berries or peaches in our parfaits, but now that it's winter, we love adding pomegranate seeds. They offer a nice tartness and crunch plus they're so good for you!
