Parfait for the New Year!

Perfect for the new year, whether you are trying to lose weight or be healthy, is this gluten-free fresh fruit yogurt parfait, great for breakfast or dessert!

Take Organic plain yogurt (so as to avoid the mass amount of added sugars and unnatural ingredients in flavored yogurts) and stir in some no sugar natural Stevia plant sweetener plus a squirt of agave. Add some fresh fruit slices and there you have a quick, easy, and healthy mind-powering breakfast to start your day.

Pictured in my breakfast is: Organic cow milk yogurt, Argentinian blueberries, California blackberries, USA kiwifruit, Columbian bananas, and California Avocado. Quite a world wide reaching little breakfast.

It is better to buy local foods and support your local economy, but this is what I found at the local Trader Joe’s Market. Many people in many states don’t have fresh fruit due to the snow season or other regional limitations.

If you want to maximize on the amount of energy you get from your fruit parfait, check out this cool fruit nutrition values chart that tells how much protein, vitamins, and calories are in each type of fruit at The Fruit Pages.

As always, I say: Do what you can, when you can, and enjoy life as much and as healthy as possible.

Happy New Year 2011!
