I do realize that this is not a new concept. However, I felt that it was necessary to document the fact that I ate breakfast this morning. I can't remember the last time I ate my own breakfast. I usually just eat the first few bites of The Toddler's breakfast because there just isn't time. Those of you with little ones know that you have a limited window to get out the door, if you don't, you're staying home. But not today. Today I triumphantly and victoriously made (and ate) my own breakfast. Yes, those adverbs are necessary.
Blueberry and Honey Parfait
Ingredients:plain greek yogurt
sprinkle of cinnamon
Directions:Drizzle honey in the bottom and on the sides of a jar. Layer yogurt, granola, blueberries and sprinkle with cinnamon. (I'm of the notion that something automatically tastes 100 times better in a mason jar).
My favorite type of greek yogurt is Fage. It's really palatable and doesn't taste so much like a grainy sour cream. If you absolutely despise plain greek yogurt, use plain yogurt. The point is to allow the honey to sweeten it without lots of unnecessary sugar. I used clover honey but if you have access to good local honey go for it!
Don't forget the cinnamon. I've recently been on a cinnamon and honey kick. With yogurt, cream cheese, peanut butter...oh especially peanut butter. It'll make you say, "hello where have you been all my life?"
