Yogurt Berry Parfait
Weight Loss Challenge - Day One.
I never wake up hungry, so I thought I'd save my calories for when the hunger pangs set in.
But later in the day, I had a complimentary personal training session to kick off the Challenge, where I learned something that I already knew, but nearly always ignore.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You need it to jump start your metabolism.
I took the trainers words to heart, and better late than never, came home and whipped up a delicious breakfast.
Rich creamy yogurt, sweet berries and granola... simple, but so good. Jazz up the presentation a bit and not only will you not feel deprived, you'll think your indulging.
And go ahead, take out the fancy glasses, just for you.
You deserve it.
1/2 cup nonfat, vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 cup fresh berries
2 tablespoons lowfat granola
Alternately layer ingredients in a martini or wine glass.
Makes a great breakfast or midnight snack.
