Greek Yogurt, Granola and Citrus Parfait

Eat breakfast every day: It really will help you achieve that resolution to lose weight.

Research shows that breakfast eaters are more successful with weight loss efforts. Choose a protein and carbohydrate-rich breakfast -- that’s the winning combo for a satisfying meal that sticks with you longer and helps prevent mindless munching.

This fast Greek Yogurt, Granola and Citrus parfait is loaded with protein from Greek yogurt (which has double the protein of regular yogurt) and nutrient-rich carbohydrates from granola, grapefruit and tangerine. Ruby red grapefruit and tangerine provide an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamins A and C.
