Morning Parfait

Greek yogurt, honey, strawberries and Kashi to get me through Wednesday.

I can do it! I am powered up. This filling breakfast combination kept me satisfied well into the lunch hour. It was also a pleasure to eat, a little gift to myself on a Wednesday morning. Food can definitely be encouragement, and in this case a breakfast that tasted as special and sweet as a dessert, but that was completely healthy and nutritious, was the perfect start to the day.

Freshly sliced strawberries were layered with thick plain Greek Yogurt, drizzles of honey, a dash of cinnamon, and topped with crunchy Kashi Go Lean cereal. It was a fresh and fabulous breakfast.

Use your favorite fruit, yogurt and cereal to create this parfait. Greek yogurt is wonderful because it's thick and keeps you full. Also be sure to choose a low-fat granola or a cereal that's relatively low in sugar and high in fiber and protien. This parfait would even travel well in a container to work (add the cereal on at the end to keep the crunch!). This is a combo that's sure to get us all over the mid-week hump!
