Health Benefits of the Breakfast Yogurt Parfait

Besides tasting great, all of the ingredients of the Easy Breakfast Yogurt Parfait have health benefits.

Wild Orange Essential Oil. This essential oil, used in the food industry as a natural flavoring, is packed with antioxidants. It also helps support digestion and cleanses the body.

Greek yogurt. Few foods pack as much of a healthy punch in a small serving as Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt has a thicker texture with fewer carbohydrates and sugar, and more protein the regular yogurt. Greek yogurt is high in protein, packed with probiotics, full of vitamin B12, and high in iodine and calcium.

Strawberries. Packed with vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and low-calorie food. They are also a good source of manganese and potassium. Eight berries provide more vitamin C than an orange.

Raspberries. Good for heart health, the fiber and water content help maintain a healthy digestive tract. Raspberries also contain antioxidants and a good source of polyphenols which decrease oxidative damage from free radicals.

Granola. This favorite food, composed of rolled oats, honey, and puffed rice, is a concentrated form of energy and high in dietary fiber. It has minerals (sodium, potassium, zinc, calcium, and iron) and vitamins (E, C, niacin, and thiamin).
