Hi friends :)
I had to leave work a little early today because I was feeling slightly ill :( What’s happening? I literally go years without getting sick, and then I get struck down 2 times in one month? I’m hoping an early bed time and a good night’s sleep will help nip this guy in the bud.
Per my queasishisness, I wanted something really light and refreshing for dinner, so I made a Fruit & Yogurt Parfait that was almost too beautiful to eat…almost.
In the mix:
- Pomegranate Seeds
- Raspberry yogo
- Bear Naked Fruit & Nut Granola
I just HAD to take a picture of my parfait before I added the granola. I’m not a super girly-girl – but I have an unnatural love for anything pink…look at this precious bowl!
Don’t you just want to squeeze it or something? It looks like a bowl of pink diamonds… :)
Ooook – time to add the granola. Which was a STELLAR addition.
Now I understand what all the fuss is about Bear Naked Granola – it’s honestly the best granola I’ve ever had. True, you know me as the girl who likes everything she eats…well except for the Indian FAIL…but honestly this granola was perfect.
Slightly soft and chewy, but with that satisfying granola crunch. Add in some whole, crunchy almonds, walnuts & pecans with tender raisins – and you’ve got a sure-fire winner!
This parfait was exactly what I needed to sooth my stomach and was soooo delicious – one of the best meals I’ve had in a really long time! The cold yogurt and creamy banana were the absolute perfect pairing with the chewy granola and poppy pomegranate seeds. YUM!
In other news, did you know that your wrist has a “funny bone?” I banged mine on a shelf and my entire wrist went limp…I couldn’t lift it for anything!! I actually kind of freaked out and took a picture to document the occasion…
Ahhh – two minutes later I had my wrist back and just a little scrape as evidence of the scare. Weird!!
I’m going to take it easy tonight, rest and drink plenty of liquids – hopefully I’ll be up bright eyed and bushy tailed in the a.m.! Good night everyone!
What’s your favorite cereal or granola?
