1. Perfect Yogurt Parfait

A parfait sounds fancy, but it’ll only take you three minutes to throw together this combo of 2 percent or full-fat yogurt, granola, and berries. Pro tip: You can make this in a disposable cup and eat it with a plastic spoon on the way to your morning workout. Here’s is the more detail.
