Breakfast in the morning can be more of a chore than an enjoyable meal when I’m trying to make it to work on time. Making sure I’m getting enough high quality foods while still getting a lot of protein can be just too much thinking in the morning. So instead of having to create an impressive full breakfast, I start layering three things I love: Greek Yogurt, Fresh Fruit and Granola. With this easy combination, I’m getting my vitamins from the fruit, protein from the yogurt, and carbs from the granola. It fills me up with all the goodness I need in the morning without taking too much time to prep. Here are ten delicious parfaits you can make at home this week to make your morning routine healthier and easier.
