This past week was everything but healthy for me. I had cravings and I sadly didn't deny from myself anything...So yes, I ate chocolate and chocolate and have I mentioned chocolate, already? And mostly at night.
Well, thanks god for not having those killing moments anymore when all I could think about is having a delicious bite of chocolate melting in my mouth...or chocolate chip cookies...Which I didn't make. Thank god!!
Today I am actually craving food that is good for me. Something that makes me full yet not immobilizing me because I am sooo full. Something that is not carbs, something that is not crazy sweet, something that makes me happy. So I got the idea of making a yogurt parfait!! Since finally summer is here which equals fresh fruits!! My all time favorite that I can never get sick of are strawberries!! Ahhhh.....strawberries....I could write an ode to strawberries, I love them so much :D We had 6 kgs of them the other day and they are almost gone!!
Doesn't this look like heaven??
But back to the parfait... It is so easy to make! You can use any kind of fruit.
I made mine with blueberries and strawberries but I used banana and cherries for the other ones.
1 plain Activia yogurt
a handful of blueberries
3 pieces of straberries
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 oatmeal cookie
In a glass or a cereal bowl layer oatmeal, a few teaspoons of yogurt, a few pieces of fruits and repeat the layers until you run out of the ingredients. I also crumbled a cookie on top so it would sweeten the parfait. :)
