Greek Yogurt Parfait

I am planning on sharing a bunch of recipes I made over the Thanksgiving holiday, such as sausage and herb stuffing, perfect pound cake, chocolate spice cookies, and almond macaroons. In the meantime, enjoy this recipe for an extremely healthy breakfast or lunch, perfect for detoxing after a long weekend of indulgence.

I eat a variation of this for lunch all the time. It may not look like a satisfying meal, but between the 18 grams of protein in the greek yogurt plus the protein in the quinoa or flax cereal and the fruit, it will definitely fill you up. This time of year I LOVE to buy pomegranates and add the seeds to my yogurt. It is one of my absolute favorite things to eat.

I came across these two products in the gluten free isle. These are healthy choices even if you don't have Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance. Pop Quin is 100%  puffed quinoa. It has a nutty flavor and is full of protein. Enjoy Life, Perky's Crunchy Flax cereal tastes more like standard plain cereal, it contains no preservatives and is vitamin fortified.
