Breakfast Berries with Yogurt and Cheese Parfait
This is an easy and healthy breakfast recipe. Start your day with an energizing, healthy, delicious breakfast meal. Your meals should be a balance of protein, fiber, carbohydrates and healthy fats and this recipe provides this.
I love eating berries in breakfast, they contain high amount of antioxidants and fiber. Yogurt and cottage cheese/paneer is great sources of protein and calcium. Oats is one of the healthiest grains containing important fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and the best part is they are a gluten-free whole grain.
I sometimes also have it as a dessert when looking for some healthy, easy and quick option. I usually make cottage cheese at home on weekends and refrigerate it and always have some crunchy oatmeal also in stock. You can make the crunchy oatmeal and store it in a airtight container. I use Granola instead, if I don’t have crunchy oatmeal in stock and still want a quick dessert or breakfast.
