Pumpkin Parfait

Posted on

I found this on Fitness Magazine’s site and it looked interesting and odd all at the same time. It would be a great way to get veggies in at breakfast. Their recipe just called for plain low-fat yogurt, but I couldn’t find that in my Master Cook software and I was looking for accurate numbers on calories, exchanges, etc. So you can use whatever yogurt as long as you realize it will throw off the calories slightly. They sweetened the yogurt with honey. I chose to use vanilla yogurt because it is already pre-sweetened.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
