Breakfast Yogurt Parfait


8 oz Plain or Vanilla low fat yogurt
1/4 cup cooked Wheat Berries
1/2 T Honey
1/2 Cup Strawberries sliced
1/4 Cup Blueberries

1/4 C. Old Fashioned Oatmeal (powdered in blender if preferred)
1 Tbsp. Soy Protein Powder

Peanut Butter and Egg Sandwich (doesn't sound good but is quite tasty)


Egg substitute or if you prefer the real thing is okay too, egg whites would also work (1 egg or equivalent)
2tbsp Reduced fat Peanut butter
2 slices Sara Lee 45 calorie bread.


Makes one sandwich. Cook egg or egg substitute fully. Toast two slices of bread and spread on peanut butter add egg to middle and enjoy

Number of Servings: 1

Oatmeal Yogurt Delight


1/2 cup of Quick Cooking Oats
1 4 oz Dannon's Vanilla Carb Control Yogurt (you can also use other flavors if you want)
1 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon to taste
a handful of fresh or frozen blueberries. Also can use cut up peaches or apples in season instead of blueberries.
The recipe is sweet enough for me--but you can add a packet of Splenda if you want it sweeter.


In a microwave safe container, add quick cooking oats, water, cinnamon, and blueberries. Cover with wax paper and microwave for 2 to 2.5 minutes on high. Before serving stir in yogurt. It makes a large, hearty breakfast that will stay with you for the whole morning.
