I used to equate healthy with taking lots of time and costing more. It still may not be as easy as just tearing something open but it can be pretty quick. This morning I made fruit and yogurt parfaits. They were YUM and filling. I simply started out thawing some frozen blueberries I picked myself. I put 1/2 cup of Stonyfield non-fat plain yogurt (chobani and fage are also really good) in our bowl. I blended in a few drops of my homemade lemoncello just to cut a little of the yogurt tang or a drizzle of honey is natural and healthy. I then added fresh peaches, banana, coconut and the blueberries over the yogurt. I sprinkled 1/3 cup of Cascadian Farms cinnamon raisin granola cereal on top and WHA LA! It was cool and filling, not to mention healthy and low fat. I bought some breakfast bread from Publix along with coffee. Enjoy the simple healthy, quick, parfait that couldn’t be topped by gourmet restaurants in town.

It is a “pick your own” blueberry farm. You may think that “pick your own” doesn’t sound like a treasure but I really enjoy the experience of it. Mary Mac Berry Farm doesn’t spray their bushes so you can eat while you pick. Part of the treasure is the blueberries cost $1.50 per pound, yes per pound.
