Today’s daily shoot assignment: Make a photograph of something you eat today. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack. Make it look tasty. The assignment got me thinking about what I wanted to eat for breakfast but also would make a nice photograph. I thought about doing something with eggs but since I’ve just read 380 million eggs is being recall for salmonella contamination; the eggs didn’t sound tasty to me. Besides, I was in the mood for something sweet.
Although, I am not a health fanatic, I do like to eat healthy when I can. Here is a good for you dessert breakfast: The fruit and yogurt parfait. I used to not like yogurt until I discovered the parfait. However, I did not like the store-bought because of all the extra sugars and high calorie content. It defeats the purpose of eating healthy. I came up with this recipe instead – it tastes great and has about 200 calories.
3/4 Cup Plain Non-Fat Yogurt
1/2 Cup Frozen Mixed Berries (thawed)
1/4 Cup Nature Path Pumpkin Flax Granola
2 Teaspoon Honey
1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
