There’s nothing better than to start your morning right with a healthy and filling breakfast. I am one of those people who need a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. I read that coffee is not what you should be putting in your stomach first thing in the morning. Instead, fruits and simple food should be one of the first thing that touches your tummy. The nutrition and vitamins of these food will easily be digested into your system, providing you better energy and health.
When I can motivate myself to eat a healthy breakfast, I like to a eat and fruit granola yogurt parfait. I try my best to eat healthier breakfast because my little one likes to share with me. Now that he is getting older, prettier food also becomes more appealing. So for breakfast, I sometimes make this super easy, yogurt parfait. I make a couple of bowls and save one for the next day.
How to make this simple, Greek yogurt parfait, and start your morning right:
In a small bowl, scoop a generous portion of Greek yogurt.
(Greek Yogurt is high in protein, which will make you feel fuller longer throughout the day)
Add a layer of your favorite granola.
(Granola is high in fiber, and sometimes, they have added protein)
Sprinkle some chia seeds or flaxseeds.
(Chia seeds and flaxseeds are high in omega 3 fatty acids. Perfect for your skin and heart)
Add fruits like strawberries, bananas and blueberries.
(Fruits are high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals)
For some extra yumminess, drizzle a little bit of honey.
(Honey will add sweetness, plus it is has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties)
