GOLDEN FLAX & BLUEBERRY PARFAIT

Golden Flax & Blueberry Parfait // Easy Perfect Breakfast For Summer!

Blueberries have always had a special place in my heart. As a kid I remember crawling through fragrant blueberry bushes and picking out the largest, juiciest berries that I could find. There was something so special about hunting and gathering our berries to take home to enjoy all week long. 

Though my blueberry picking days are long over, I still thoroughly enjoy perusing through local farmers markets in search of the perfect pint. And last weekend, I hit the jackpot. I was in dire need of refuel after a full day of adventuring through the city when I spotted a farmer selling the most stunning blueberries - firm but juicy, sweet but not too tart. Pure perfection.

Since this week was a bit of a whirlwind, I have been taking breakfast out the door with me. In attempts to start preparing more healthful and timely recipes, I was inspired to create this simple Golden Flax & Blueberry Parfait. Filled with antioxidant rich blueberries, fiber-filled flaxseeds and protein rich yogurt, this breakfast is the perfect way to start any summer morning.
