Balanced Breakfast: Whole Grain Yogurt Parfaits
November is Diabetes Awareness Month. One way to better balance blood sugar is to pair fiber-rich carbohydrates, such as whole grains, with lean protein and heart healthy fats. Whole grain yogurt parfaits provide the perfect combination of all three of these macronutrients to help keep you feeling fuller longer between meals and snacks. Try one of our tropical recipes or DIY at home. Simply swap out sugary granola for your favorite cooked and chilled whole grain to get a more balanced nutritional bang for your buck.
Stay tuned for a savory twist on our whole grain yogurt parfaits later this month.
