Eating breakfast is important to set the tone for your day and keep hunger in check. Consistently, when my clients start eating breakfast they snack less throughout the day, make healthier choices and are less likely to overeat at other meals. Some find they are more productive and think more clearly at work. This high protein breakfast parfait is one of my favorite go-tos for a simple, delicious meal!

High Protein Super Simple Breakfast Parfait
This high protein, super simple breakfast parfait works for you whether you’re able to carve out time to sit down for breakfast or you need to grab-and-go on the way out the door!
Why I Like This Breakfast Parfait
This breakfast parfait is a great choice because it’s nutritionally balanced, filling and flavorful. It’s super quick and easy to make, checking all of the weekday breakfast boxes. Plus it’s flavorful, and we know that taste is the number one driver in consumer food choice.
Protein & Fiber
I love this breakfast parfait because it’s high in protein from the Greek or Icelandic Skyr yogurt and a good source of fiber from the fruit. This combo keeps you satisfied and full until lunch time (hey that means you can skip on the donuts in the break room!). Be sure to choose a yogurt that’s high in protein (look for ≥12 g protein) and low in added sugars. There will already be some naturally-occurring sugar from the lactose (milk sugar). My favorite yogurts are Siggi’s or Fage.
Side note, I’ve met Siggi before who started that company in his kitchen! He’s a really cool (and tall!) dude.
Starch or Grain
Including a starch or grain with meals generally lessens feelings of deprivation. Although granola usually sounds like it’s a healthy choice, most granolas are super high cal because they are high in fat and added sugars. Two lighter granola options I like are Bear Naked Fit (make sure you get the Fit line, they have V’nilla Almond or Triple Berry) or KIND Healthy Grains Clusters.
This breakfast parfait requires very little prep. You can shave off extra time by not alternating granola, berry and yogurt layers.
Without further ado, I bring you a super simple breakfast parfait that’s high in protein and low in prep! If you love it like I do, you can also try serving it in a mini trifle for a fun brunch!
