Once I find an easy, healthy meal I tend to make it over and over again until I can’t stand the site of it. Recently I’ve been eating scrambled eggs with veggies for breakfast. I never change it up. I’ve lost track of how many days in a row I’ve had the SAME breakfast. It’s boring but I like it because it’s one less thing I have to think about when I wake up.
This Strawberry-Banana Parfait will soon make it onto my breakfast menu. It’s a healthy breakfast with its combination of yogurt and fruit. It fills me up and also satisfies my sweet tooth. The walnuts add a nice texture.
I’ve made this several times. I’ve substituted the walnuts for pecans. I also bulked it up by adding some quinoa for an additional texture that includes more protein. Protein is an essential part of my breakfast! I noticed that if I don’t have protein I am hungry within an hour or two. I’m jealous of the people who can just grab a banana and go. It never fills me up.
