Yogurt Parfait

This yogurt parfait is an easy, healthy, and delicious option for breakfast.

Greek yogurt is a rich source of calcium and has enough proteins to keep you feeling full throughout the morning. However, make sure to choose a plain variety and not one with artificial flavour. Yogurt should only have two ingredients: milk and bacterial culture. To avoid the hidden ingredients and added sugars, opt for adding fruits instead. This is a great way to increase your daily intake of recommended fruit servings (roughly two cups) and to give your yogurt amazing flavour and extra nutrition.

Having a diet rich in whole grains reduces the risk of many chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. To keep this dish interesting, you have several options of grains to add to your yogurt. The choices are limitless: quinoa, chia seeds, oats, hemp seeds, flaxseeds, bulgur, barley and even brown rice. Top all your ingredients with a spoon of pure maple syrup or honey and enjoy!
