It is coming. Can you feel it?

Back to School time is here (for us just over a week) and so, it is time to start prepping for quick but healthy breakfasts and lunches.

What, don’t think the kids will eat this? well heck, you might. Now get those kids to school and then squeeze in some exercise.

Go on.

Pineapple, Berry & Coconut Back to School Breakfast Parfait (1 generous serving)
Ingredients:
4 tablespoons warrior crunch granola*
4-6 oz pineapple yogurt (chobani)
4-6 strawberries, chopped
1/2 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon coconut flakes

Directions:
1. Clean and prepare the fruit.

2. Place 2 tablespoons of the granola on the bottom of the dish, top with 1/2 of the yogurt followed by the fruit. Top with remaining yogurt, granola and then coconut.

*Warrior Crunch was created as a team effort between Nuts About Granola (the folks I mentioned from the healthy living summit) and Cancer Warrior. Their collaboration is part of an effort to raise money for cancer research. Formulated with cancer patients in mind, this energy-packed snack is full of whole grains, almonds, anti-oxidant rich cherries and dark chocolate.

From August 1st – October 31st, all proceeds from Warrior Crunch will go directly to Susan from the Great Balancing Act. Order here!

I kinda wish you were my mommy, so I could eat this for breakfast everyday. ;)

I always forget this would make a great lunch option for my soon-to-be-first-grader. Love the addition of coconut flakes!

I have never thought about putting coconut on a parfait, but it’s so so smart. YUmmy!

I love yogurt parfaits and I’m sure my kids would love it too.

Wow, great minds think alike, LOL! I just posted a fruit, yogurt parfait, with my one favorite Chobani flavor! My second is pineapple flavor, so you know I am loving your parfait:-) Take care, Terra

Pineapple yogurt and Warrior Crunch – now that sounds right up my alley. What a neat concept behind this granola. I always call my friends with cancer warriors, as they truly have the courage and strength to endure all the treatments on the road to healing and recovery.

What a fresh, delicious way to send the kids off to school (and myself off to work). Your photos are crisp, bright, and so attractive. There are fast-food yogurt-based parfaits (I won’t mention this mega restaurant) that, while delicious, are over the top in fat and calories. Your parfait looks like the popular fast-food-chain parfait but is more healthful because of the ingredients.

Thanks for sharing and kudos on your lovely blog.
