Blueberry Avocado Superfood Parfait Recipe with A Healthy Life For Me.
Do you get the 3 o’clock munchies? Hungry, tired and want something to make you feel better? Don’t reach for the chips or dare I say the peanut butter pretzels. My darn husband keeps buying those damn things and bringing them home. He even has the dogs addicted. They are bad, bad, bad and they end up making me feel worse.
I have been making a conscious effort to come up with some healthy mid day snacks that satisfy me and hold me over till dinner. This Blueberry Avocado Superfood Parfait is loaded with superfoods, that will not only give you the healthy benefits but a bit of a healthy energy kick with the honey. This would also make a great after school snack for the kiddies, energizing their brains for the before dinner homework.
While sugar shuts down the immune system, a good quality honey will stimulate it into action, making it a great substitute. Honey also increases calcium absorption, (the yogurt) increases haemoglobin count and treats and prevents anaemia caused by nutritional factors, can help to boost gastrointestinal ulcer healing, works as a natural and gentle laxative and aids constipation, allergies and obesity, is exceptionally effective internally against bacteria and parasites and supplies instant energy without the insulin surge caused by white sugar. Studies also have shown that just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL cholesterol.
Add in the vitamins, minerals, probiotics from this Blueberry Avocado Superfood Parfait and you have a little bowl of goodness that tastes just as good as it looks and makes you feel even better.
