Yogurt Parfait Toppings for Breakfast for the new year breakfast plan. So now we have been slacking due to a very stressful year but in between we got to go to Portugal, visit family, ate a lot of ice cream but most of all our parents are doing well after a tough year of health problems. This probably explains the weight gain and as we ate our emotions away we stopped thinking about our health.
Which brings us to this problem of my pants not fitting and Jeffrey breaking his leg. So a new year is upon us and we hope to change to better health. The first thing I changed was breakfast. It’s the fuel to the body in the morning and it’s the most important meal of the day.
Here is how we start our morning with a Yogurt Parfait but it’s all about the toppings!
