Make ahead breakfast parfaits. You all these are divine and easy to assemble. Make 3-5 at a time for on the go breakfast, or (pre/post workout) snack. Breakfast needs 3-5 different food groups to be balanced. 

Greek yogurt provides a dominant protein. *This is plain, made from whole milk (a little extra fat and creaminess). Next, use a high fiber or high protein whole grain cereal. *Using cereal over granola usually saves you added sugar grams and overall calories, without forgoing the crunch. You can use old fashioned oats, but they don’t stand up to the yogurt the way cereal can. Lastly, add a fruit of choice (berries, pineapple, kiwi, chopped apples, or peaches). *If you use bananas, slice those right before eating, you’ll be sad to see them after a night in the refrigerator.
