Thank you for visiting! If you like this post, please don’t forget to stumble!

Blackberries were on sale this week.  However, one berry told me I wouldn’t be eating these alone.  They were not sweet enough for me.  So, I decided I would make a parfait.  I wanted high protein, low sugar, and yumminess.  🙂

I like to eat breakfast during the week, but not before I leave the house.  I may be up early, but I am never really ready to eat before 8 or 8:30.  This was easy to make and take and have after I arrived to the office.  I decided to go no carb….however I do love to sometimes put granola in my parfaits!  This time I decided not to because I was using ricotta cheese in my recipe and didn’t want to add more calories to the picture.

I have added the print feature….finally!  🙂  I know, it has taken me a long time to decide to do this but I never realized just how easy it would be and I thought I never had the time.  I will be updating the blog as I go along and creating printable recipes for my older posts, but from this point on all new posts will have printable recipes!  I hope you will enjoy 🙂

    I love this kind of breakfast. I can't wait for summer, even though Spring has only just begun only for the blackberries.

    My first look at the pictures was "berries and yogurt?"

    then I read the recipe and wow – almond extract with ricotta. Oh yum!

    I like the addition of the almond extract. I'm going to have to try that!
