My favorite breakfast

I love breakfast foods, if I had my way I would be happy to enjoy quiches, bacon, waffles, scones and the like every single day.

But that doesn’t fit in with trying to eat healthy or losing weight….both of which would suit me well at this point.

So aside from holiday breakfast spreads, this is my real life favorite breakfast food that I treat myself to most mornings.  It fills me up and tastes so good.  And it’s pretty too which for me is a great bonus!

Yogurt Breakfast Parfait

1/2 banana sliced tiny
3/4 cup plain, unsweetened yogurt
1/2 cup frozen berries (sliced small if large)
1/2 cup low fat granola

Of course if you are rushed you can throw it all into a bowl, but I seriously enjoy it so much more in a tall, clear glass.  Isn’t it pretty?

I do this funny thing every year, let me share.  We pick berries in summer then I place 1-2 cups in small ziplocs and we freeze them for winter when fresh produce is harder to come by and much more expensive.  We spend many hours berry picking.  They are forbidden for months, like a prized possesion (we are ‘saving’ them after all).  Then winter is suddenly here and we’ve eaten only a few berries.  Now it’s already January and the lower fourth of our freezer is still teeming with berries of all kinds.  So, we’ve been having fruit smoothies every single day and frozen berries for dessert and I’ve been loving me some berry-filled parfaits.  Yum.



Um- yum!!! Can Auntie come over and have one!!?? 🙂


That looks just like what I need to look forward to breakfast. Pretty, yummy, fresh & healthy. I’m in a breakfast funk right now…now, to just find some of those yummy berries you picked last year…


Wow! That’s a yummy breakfast. I don’t know why we don’t eat more fruit parfaits in our house?! We like freezing berries too, and this year we froze a TON of peaches. Last weekend we had a peach and french toast bake for breakfast!

Two more months of my consolidation diet and I’ll be able to enjoy this delicious breakfast.

It will make living w/o wheat easier. Who would have thought I would miss oatmeal so much!!!
