Simple Berry Breakfast Parfait

Silk_Yogurt_02

I’m a big fan of breakfast. I’m also a big fan of lunch, dinner, snacks, happy hour, mid-morning coffee breaks…. basically I love to eat. Besides loving to eat, I also love all types of food. I’m lucky enough to not have any food allergies (knock on wood!) and am the complete opposite of a picky eater. In fact, I can count on one hand the foods that I don’t like (which include Blue and Gorgonzola cheeses and shiitake mushrooms). There are other foods that I prefer not to eat, but there are very few that I genuinely dislike the taste of.

I eat dairy. I eat soy. I eat gluten. I eat fruits and vegetables. I eat sugar. I eat meat. I eat dairy and meat alternatives. I eat grains. I eat it all. (And I’m still alive!)

One of the foods that’s a staple in my diet in yogurt. I alternate between Greek yogurt, skyr, almond milk yogurt, plain (dairy) yogurt.. heck, even frozen yogurt! Until recently, there was one particular type of yogurt that was not in my rotation: soy. I have nothing against soy. As long as it’s certified non-GMO (of which Silk products are!), I’m a fan . But, the majority of soy yogurts that I’ve tried taste like crap.

I had completely written off soy yogurt as an option in my yogurt rotation until I tasted Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative at the Silk Blogger immersion almost two years ago. It was literally love at first taste- and since then, it’s become a staple in my refrigerator.

Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative doesn’t have that icky chemical taste that I’ve found other soy yogurts to have. It tastes delightful! And, there are delicious chunks of fruit swirled into the yogurt- it’s basically perfect.

Whoa- I’ve been majorly slacking at posting. I’m ashamed that I couldn’t even manage to get a Currently post up in the last few months! When everything else is occupying my time, blogging definitely goes by the wayside. I appreciate that the five of you that are still reading… are still reading. :)

We’ve got a bunch of exciting stuff going on at work (I’ll share soon, I promise!) that’s been making my usual 40-50 hour work week more like 60. And, add planning Blend on top of that (along with Janetha and Lindsay)- it’s pretty much like two full-time jobs. Let me make this clear though: I’m not complaining! I love my job and planning Blend… but I need a nap. :)

Currently: May

Current books: I have a bad habit of starting books and then bailing halfway through to start another one. I did that with The Andy Cohen Diaries in favor of Gone Girl, and was then distracted by a few other books. The last (full) book I read was this one, which I totally loved and could relate to on almost every level. But, now I’m back to Andy Cohen and am determined to finish it! I have Torch waiting for me next.

Current music: Pandora station: Mumford & Sons (always)


Current guilty pleasure: I don’t know if it’s really a guilty pleasure, but I get an awful lot of entertainment from the How-Old.Net site. I think I’ve tried about 10 different photos, and it usually ages me anywhere from 40 – 72 (I’m 35, btw). These two photos were the youngest. I guess a stupid bright red lipstick selfie reverses the aging process?

Current nail color: I really should change this to (toe)nail color, since my finger nails are almost always naked. I got a much needed pedicure on Saturday and am now sporting clean, short gold toes.
