Berry Breakfast

Berry Nutty Breakfast Parfait

If you’re looking for a quick and healthy breakfast, try this easy berry parfait. Plain yogurt is sweetened with fresh strawberries and blueberries, fiber-rich granola and a few walnuts for crunch. Berries and walnuts are rich in ellagic acid, a compound that acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. This recipe is sure to convert even the most steadfast breakfast-skippers.

Makes 4 servings.
