Simple Greek Raspberry Parfait -- A Perfect Breakfast for the 1st day of June

Happy Sunday and Happy 1st Day of June! This morning we got up early to get started on our day. I made a simple Greek raspberry parfait for my breakfast using a 7-ounce cup of Fage 2% Greek yogurt blended with about 1 tablespoon of heavy cream. I sweetened it with a bit of stevia and stirred in a few mashed ripe fresh raspberries to infuse the yogurt with fresh raspberry flavor and add a pretty light pink color. I topped it with some additional fresh raspberries and a little bit of whipped cream. It wasn't fancy or complicated but was a nice way to start this first day of June. 

I also snapped a photo of hubby's breakfast. He had a fried "farm fresh" egg, sausage (Aidells Chicken & Apple) and one of my Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits that I made Thursday evening when we had "breakfast for dinner" since one of the folks from his work brought him a couple dozen farm fresh eggs from her chickens. She brought him a dozen "Cinnamon Queen" eggs and a dozen "Rhode Island Reds" so we had eggs, sausage and biscuits for dinner that night. I had actually snapped a couple photos of Thursday night's meal to post...but silly me didn't realize that the photos I snapped that evening were while using my camera WITHOUT a memory guess what happened when I went to download the pics to my computer that night? They did not exist! LOL How in the world I didn't notice the flashing warning on the screen saying "no card"...I'll never know. Check out mine and hubby's breakfast below. Enjoy!

Thanks so much Linda! That is exactly why I do this! I'll be honest, when I first looked at the list of foods that are allowed on a wheat and grain free plan (and all those that are not allowed) heart sank a bit. I figured that I would have to trade variety, taste and good food for good health. When I actually began making the foods to eat this way, I realized that it was definitely not boring...and what better way to show folks than to SHOW them rather than tell them. So...I began my almost daily posts of the foods I eat and the recipes I create. It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words...that is especially true when on paper it looks like there are so many things you won't be able to enjoy again...I hope my photos help show otherwise! If you haven't seen my Pinterest page...check it out because it is a quick way to see how well I have eaten these past couple of's the visual proof that is is definitely not boring! :-) Here's the link:
