Strawberry Parfait

It's been a while since i posted here, last time i checked, it was year 2010, and hey..look at what year now, 2011. Though it's only been the third month of the year, I feel time are moving so fast. Before you know it, bam! it's christmas time. Though for some people in tragedy who are desperately need helping hand, time seemed to move slower. My heart goes to all victims in the recent Japan's natural disaster. They are still waiting for our helping hand, so do whatever you can to help...donate to your local donation center or even here to help them. Every prayer & help do count!

Aside from the tragedy, I had made a resolution to lead a better life, including eat the right food. Our body is our temple, right? Well, i haven't take care of my temple in a while, i eat what i feel like eating, and the holiday festivities craziness made to too lazy to go exercising my temple. Anyway, now that I gained 2 kg, it's time to get back into shape. I stumbled upon someone's blog (can't remember which one now) but it inspired me to create this strawberry parfait, which not only is healthy & nutritious, but delicious too! What more can you ask out of that?

Strawberry Parfait
Makes : 1 individual serving glass

Ingredients :
3-4 pieces of strawberries (cut in halves or however you like)
1 tsp sugar (optional)
1 cup of greek or natural or vanilla flavor yoghurt
1 tbsp honey
1/2 cup oatmeal cluster / your fav. oatmeal cereal

Different varieties of your fav. peanuts can be added (optional)

How to:
1. Mix pre-cut strawberries with sugar, set aside for 10 minutes. This step is optional, some people do like their strawberries fresh-out-of-the package but with local strawberries here are so sour that I prefer to coat them with sugar and let them give me a little bit of juices, yum...
2. In a small bowl, put yoghurt and honey, and mix them with a spoon until blended well.

Now it's time to assemble.

Put half of strawberries in the bottom of the glass, pour half of the yoghurt, topped with half of your oatmeal clusters. Repeat the layers and finally, dig in...!

What's good about this is, you can eat it at anytime of the day, for breakfast, lunch, dinner...and you'll be guilt-free! At least that's how i feel.
