Looking for a great tasting, low-calorie breakfast option to start you day? Try a Yogurt parfait made with Greek Yogurt. I prefer Organic Greek Yogurt (Plain) in 5.3 oz containers (80 calories). I add 1 tbsp of honey (60) calories, and 1/4 cup of granola (100 calories) and a small handful of blueberries, raspberries or both (12 - 15 berries).
The really great thing about this combination is that it is very filling and sticks with you all morning. I haven't had a single mid-morning hunger pang since I started eating this. Best of all, the entire parfait is only 250 - 280 calories depending on which brand of granola you choose.
Couple of things about Greek Yogurt... Greek Yogurt is a natural product with not additives, preservatives, sugars, stabilizers, etc.. It has nearly twice the protein of regular commercial yogurt. It is also lower in lactose. You will find that it is creamier than regular, super-market yogurt. It contains probiotics that are great for gut health.
This is a great tasting treat that's easy to make and easy to take with you if you are short on time. Works for lunch too!View Thread
