Breakfast:

Breakfast Parfait

6 oz lowfat yogurt (1 container)
1/4 cup granola
1/2 cup seasonal fruit (We'll use berries)

Layer ½ the yogurt in a glass or a cup, top with ½ the fruit and then ½ the granola. Repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients. For variety, change the fruit with the seasons or use dried fruit and use unsalted dry roasted nuts instead of granola.

Continue the Day:

Fruit, fruit, fruit!!!!
Snack on a couple pieces throughout the morning. Oranges are PACKED with vitamin C that strengthen our immune system and lower stress hormones.

Oatmeal, a comfort food that makes us feel good and increases serotonin levels, a natural calming chemical in our bodies. Quick cooking oatmeal is a great way to get our fiber in a quick meal.

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seeds or chopped almonds

Boil the water and add the oatmeal, salt and the pumpkin pie spice.
