Waffle and Yogurt Parfait

Some days, I need help with breakfast.

Like…right now, I’m eating oatmeal and strawberries out of an almost empty Nutella jar. Yum. This is a great breakfast day.

But some days…I am lazy. I don’t want to make anything. I wait and wait and wait to figure out what I want on the days I work from home, but I still end up eating the same things over and over.

So two weeks ago, I took this tasty but kind of boring breakfast and kicked it up a bit.

Normal breakfast plate: 2 kashi waffles, plain yogurt, strawberries from the garden.

Snooze-fest, just sitting there on the plate. Especially after I had the same breakfast the day before.

And then I had a genius idea!

Waffles are kinda like waffle cones. I can’t have ice cream for breakfast, but I can toast these waffles until they’re super crispy, cut them up, and layer ’em with my yogurt and berries.

Toasted waffle bits > granola.

This was so much more fun to eat than just having them sitting there on my plate, unlayered and untouching.

Got any new breakfast twists for me to try? I obviously need help if this makes me excited.
