Enough about my (ridiculously huge) appetite. I was really, really craving a pumpkin quinoa parfait that Alyssa showed me last week. Unfortunately, I don't have any canned pumpkin. So, I improvised a little, and made a much more elaborate parfait.
First, I mixed a small bowl of nonfat plain yogurt and half a scoop of vanilla flavored protein powder.
I decided to use some TJ's granola that I bought awhile ago and use only on rare occasions such as this.
Mmm...dried berries and whole grains!
The parfait layers:
- yogurt concoction
- chia seeds
- slightly thawed frozen peaches
- homemade coconut butter
But it seemed incomplete. Ah, yes. It needed something to top it off.
Date syrup to the rescue!
Needless to say, that parfait was gone in ~3 minutes.
I had lovely, awesome Liana record the turbo section of my class once again. I was determined to get a much better quality video this time. Thanks to Nirantha who let me borrow her cam! This video should not cause headaches like the last one did...
