A festive, healthy, and delicious breakfast parfait perfect for the Fourth of July — it has blueberries, apples, Greek Yogurt, and granola.
The 4th of July is not known for being a time to eat healthy food. Most celebrations don’t really include healthy foods, and I never shy away from the most tasty foods at parties or celebrations, such as hamburgers and ice cream on the 4th of July. However, that doesn’t mean the whole day has to be a complete loss when it comes to healthy eating. Start your 4th of July out right with a delicious and healthy red, white, and blue breakfast parfait, and then indulge yourself with a little less guilt later on during all of the festivities!
I used Greek yogurt flavored with honey. Greek yogurt has a decent amount of protein, and I used some of Bob’s Red Mill Apple Blueberry Granola. The protein and the fiber from the granola helps people like me not end up eating a second breakfast an hour later. I think if I just had half of a grapefruit I would be hungry 30 minutes later! This Red, White, and Blue breakfast parfait is a much more satisfying meal than a bowl of cereal, and it would be an easy and festive meal to make for a large group of people. There is no cooking involved and you just have to slice up the apples. No one wants to slave over a hot stove top in the morning when they know they are going to be out in the heat later on in the day. Plus, blueberries should be in season this time of year, so they should be extra healthy and delicious.
