This berry parfait is not just a tasty way to start the day. The yogurt contains lots of protein and fat to keep you full throughout the morning, and the berries are a fantastic, low-GI source of carbohydrates.
The combination of berries should be sweet enough, but you can add a little honey if you need it.
When you buy dairy products like yogurt, it is really important to look for the right kind.
Wherever possible, try to buy products from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows. These cows are allowed to roam free in clean and healthy conditions, and they produce milk that has a higher vitamin content and better ratio of omega-3 to omega-6.
They are far more likely to be healthy and free from disease than regular dairy cows.
Berries are another food where you should know what you are buying. Blueberries are among the "Dirty Dozen" foods that the Environmental Working Group lists as carrying above average pesticide residues.
Whenever you buy berries, try to purchase an organic brand. If that's not practical, spray them with a fruit and vegetable wash, and be sure to rinse them thoroughly.
