Happy New Year and a Make-Ahead Breakfast

Hello and Happy New Year!  It feels kind of funny to say that now, considering it’s already the 16th of January.  Nonetheless, I hope that you had a festive yet restful holiday season.

It’s been quite a while since my last post.  Unfortunately, I had to go radio-silent during exams, and when all was said and done, I just needed to take a break.  This year I will try to have a few yummy recipes in the queue and ready to go for such times.  Speaking of yummy recipes, here is an easy, make ahead breakfast recipe that will help get you out the door on time.  If you are like me, you know that getting up before the sun rises to hit the gym, sneak in a run, or make it to class on time is no fun at all.  I hope this helps.

Serves 4

Ingredients
500 g (2 cups) plain or vanilla yogurt
2 cups fresh or frozen berries
1 1/3 cup granola

Preparation
  1. Add 125g (1/2 cup) yogurt to each small mason jar* or reusable container.
  2. Add 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries in each jar or container.
  3. Top each parfait with 1/3 cup granola, attach lid and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

What do you do to get yourself organized and out the door on time in the mornings?
