One of the biggest questions I get asked is, “What should I eat for breakfast?”
We often get bored with breakfast and tend to skip it. In the morning you are rushed, trying to make it out the door on time, and you barley manage to make it to your car without spilling your coffee. Sound familiar?
You can prep this Blueberry Quinoa Parfait the night before to have it ready in the AM, or to enjoy as an afternoon snack.
Why I love blueberries:
Blueberry help you look and feel your best!
Blueberries provide a hassle-free way to eat well year-round. I enjoy them in frozen and fresh form.
Speaking of frozen and fresh blueberries, both contain beneficial vitamins and minerals. Frozen blueberries are picked at the peak of ripeness and individually quick-frozen to preserve their taste and nutritional components.
Blueberries are a convenient food that can be eaten on the go or part of your favorite dish – like this parfait.
It’s rare to encounter an individual who doesn’t enjoy the taste of blueberries. But beyond their tangy sweetness and the fact you can pop them into your mouth one by one or incorporate them into many recipes, blueberries offer a wealth of health benefits…
Blueberries are a good source of fiber (3.6g per serving which is a handful or a cup). Fiber aids in digestion and fiber rich foods may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Fresh Blueberries are a good source of Vitamin C. A handful or cup (1 serving) of blueberries provides 16% of the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C.
Blueberries contain many vitamins and minerals: vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese.
Mix 2 cups quinoa to 2 cups yogurt together in a medium sized bowl. In a parfait glass, layer the quinoa & yogurt down first, then a layer of blueberries, another layer of quinoa & yogurt, and top with more blueberries, nuts and a drizzle of honey. Enjoy right away, or place in fridge to enjoy in the morning!
