Blackberries were on sale this week. However, one berry told me I wouldn’t be eating these alone. They were not sweet enough for me. So, I decided I would make a parfait. I wanted high protein, low sugar, and yumminess.
I like to eat breakfast during the week, but not before I leave the house. I may be up early, but I am never really ready to eat before 8 or 8:30. This was easy to make and take and have after I arrived to the office. I decided to go no carb….however I do love to sometimes put granola in my parfaits! This time I decided not to because I was using ricotta cheese in my recipe and didn’t want to add more calories to the picture.
I have added the print feature….finally! I know, it has taken me a long time to decide to do this but I never realized just how easy it would be and I thought I never had the time. I will be updating the blog as I go along and creating printable recipes for my older posts, but from this point on all new posts will have printable recipes! I hope you will enjoy
