If you are on a low-carb diet and are tired of eating eggs for breakfast, here’s a new refreshing low-carb breakfast option for you! This Greek yogurt breakfast with fresh berries and nuts is so healthy and delicious!
Love those breakfast parfaits at Starbuck’s or other restaurants, but hate the price and the carbs? Whip up this Low Carb Yogurt Breakfast with Berries and Nuts, and your waistline and wallet will thank you!
I already wrote about my homemade Starbucks copycat fruit and yogurt parfait, but this recipe takes it a step further by making it low-carb! Bye-bye sugary granola! Hello low-carb nuts! Plus the yogurt is plain, no sugary sweeteners in this low-carb breakfast! It’s naturally sweetened with berries, so healthy and good!
Healthy breakfasts don’t have to be time-consuming to prepare, or loaded with carbs and calories. In fact, one of my favorite things about this Low Carb Yogurt Breakfast with Berries and Nuts is that you can make a whole week’s worth and store them in the refrigerator. Voila! Instant, delicious, lovely to look at breakfast, just like a fancy restaurant, but at half the price or less! If you have kids, they will probably love to help. Line up your containers (I use inexpensive, reusable small plastic ones), a variety of berries, a big container of Greek yogurt, and your nuts, and start to layer! These parfaits will keep for about 5 days in the fridge, so you have “grab and go” breakfasts!
Replace the restaurant’s version, which has carb and high fructose syrup and calorie-laden granola and fruity, sweetened yogurt with more healthy for you Greek yogurt and nuts. With the berries and the nuts, not only won’t you miss all that sugar, and all those carbs, but I bet, like me, you’ll like this Low Carb Yogurt Breakfast with Berries and Nuts even better!
Tip: Yes, fresh berries are best! And two layers of red and blue look lovely, and with the white yogurt, even patriotic! But, out of season, if you can’t get fresh, you can use frozen blueberries or strawberries. If you don’t like walnuts, substitute them with pecans, cashews, almonds, peanuts, macadamia or any other nuts.
This recipe uses Greek yogurt because not only is it thick and delicious, but it also is packed with protein – twice that of regular yogurt! Add in the nuts, which are packed with more protein, healthy antioxidants, can lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and raise HDL (good cholesterol), and are high in fiber, and those berries, also packed with antioxidants, fiber and lots ofgood-for-you phytochemicals and fiber, and you have a delicious, easy and healthy low-carb start to your day!
