I feel like this year has been just been flying by! To celebrate 4th of July and all things summer, I partnered with Safeway and General Mills to show off how to make a healthy and nutritious treat for yourself!
I like to follow the basic rule of shopping in the perimeter of a grocery store where the produce and dairy is 80% of the time, and buying natural and organic options from the middle 20% of the time. Some of my “middle of the grocery store” favorites are plain yogurt, granola, oatmeal and frozen fruit (for smoothies)!
The berries this summer have been so sweet and delicious! Elara has been eating her weight in blueberries! She’s a fiend I tell you! I paired my fresh berries with Mountain High plain yogurt and Cascadian Farm Organic Granola to make a festive red, white and blue parfait!
This is a super quick and easy breakfast or snack that you can throw together in a few minutes! I like to use plain yogurt so I can control the sweetness with honey. However, if you hate plain yogurt, Mountain High has a delicious Vanilla flavored yogurt that you can use as well!
I like my granola to have lots of texture, so I used Cascadian Farms Fruit & Nut Granola. It’s loaded with whole grain oats, raisins, cranberries, sliced almonds, roasted pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds! So much flavor and crunch – yumm! The best part is that the yogurt is made with real California milk, making it local!
