Today, I have a Winter Citrus Parfait Bar to share with you guys, or, as my husband likes to call it, a “Choose Your Own Adventure Yogurt Parfait.”
Anybody else remember those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books? Man, I could get DOWN with those things. Pretty sure I’d read one tomorrow if it showed up in my neighborhood’s Little Free Library.
ANYWAY, I’ve admittedly been a bit of a slacker in the breakfast department lately. The options I’d had around have been boring and uninspiring, and I needed to make a change.
Luck would have it that my friends at Nature’s Path recently created an e-book that’s full of fun and practical tips about how to make organic food work in your life, and this book would provide the inspiration I needed for more delicious breakfasts.
In this book (download link below!), there are tips for how to make buying certified organic budget-friendly, strategies for storing fruits and veggies to make them last longer, a seasonal shopping guide, and ideas for organic pantry swaps.
It’s an absolutely beautiful book that had me oogling at the food photography, too. Oh, and there are recipes! I made a batch of this delicious Apple Cinnamon Granola with Hazelnuts and Cranberries from the book, and my breakfasts were already on their way to becoming more interesting.
I have all of these ingredients set up as a buffet situation (perfect for a brida or baby shower brunch buffet!) in these photos, but in real life, I prepared each ingredient and then kept it in the fridge or pantry cupboard.
Then, throughout the week, my husband and I would grab all of the prepped ingredients and each choose our own parfait adventure for the following morning, as it were.
