Happy Monday!

Monday’s are always a great day to beginย eating healthy (if you don’t already do so ๐Ÿ™ƒ). ย Greek yogurt is staple in my daily diet. It’s packed withย protein and loaded with probiotics (the good bacteria that are essential to your gut ย and over all health). Plus its an excellent source of important micronutrients such as calcium, potassium, zinc, and Vitamin B12. And I can’t forget to mention that it’s creamy and delicious! When buying yogurt, I always get organic plain nonfat or low fat so that I can control the sweetness and whatever else I want to add to it. Flavored yogurts are usually LOADED with added sugars and thickeners. Parfaits are a delicious and beautiful way to serve yogurt. You can also prepare them in mason jars for a quick on the go breakfast or snack! In today’s parfait,ย I layered it withย the Naturally Sweetened Granola I made earlier this week, blackberries, and almond butter. โค๏ธ
