Weight Loss Breakfast Recipe: Berry Blast Granola-Yogurt Parfait

By Beliteweight @BeLiteWeight

Breakfast. We all eat it. We've all heard about the enormous health benefits from consuming it (as long as it's hearty and nutritious, of course). And we all know we need it.

But some of us skip it from time to time.

Why? It might be because you're running late and don't have time. You might simply forget because there's so much going through your mind. It might even be because you want to spare those calories and save them for later. Well my friends, you've heard it before and you're going to read it again right now… DON'T SKIP BREAKFAST!

Here's one of our go-to weight loss recipes because it's healthy, nutritious, fast and delicious. Granola is a little bit of a contentious topic on its weight loss capabilities, but rolled oats are jam-packed with fiber–vital for digestion–and the barley is full of antioxidants.

Speaking of antioxidants, let's not forget the berry blast of this parfait. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries–fresh is preferred, but frozen is still great–are full of antioxidants, which nurture and protect our cells to fight off disease and promote overall good health. Plus, they fight off the dangerous free radicals that can cause cancer, arthritis, atherosclerosis and Alzheimer's disease.

Don't forget about the non-fat greek yogurt, either. It has substantially less sugar and higher protein than regular yogurt, provides a good amount of calcium and has healthy lactobacteria to help improve your intestinal health.

Whether you're rushing off to work, ending a nice morning workout or leisurely catching up on the news over the weekend, this Berry Blast Granola-Yogurt Parfait is just what the doctor ordered! This also makes a great dessert or a healthy snack.
