Easy Healthy Fruit & Yogurt Parfait

Lately I've been on the hunt for foods that are super tasty, super nutritious, and super low in calories. Rather than eating less of the junk I usually eat, I've been trying to replace those junky foods with the good stuff. There are so many great, healthy options of tasty breakfast treats to enjoy, but this one has been a favorite of mine this week.

Strawberry Fruit & Yogurt Parfait
191 calories (according to MyFitnessPal)

1 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 cup granola
1 light vanilla yogurt cup

Make it
Place about 1/3 cup sliced strawberries in the bottom of a small mason jar. Sprinkle with granola. Top with 1/2 container of light vanilla yogurt. Add another 1/3 cup strawberries and cover with remaining yogurt. Cover yogurt with remaining strawberries and sprinkle remaining granola on top.

I've been surprised how satisfying and filling this little breakfast is. It keeps me going all the way until lunch time! (Which is more than I can say for a regular bowl of cereal.) I think it also definitely helps that it looks so pretty, ya know?

And since it fits in a mason jar this would also be great to bring as a morning snack at work or to the park. Just screw the lid on top and you can bring it anywhere!

Um...YUM! So wish I was over there eating one with you right now. And I love the Mason Jar idea. I'm always on the run, what a great idea!
