Peruvian Power Foods: Breakfast Brainfood Parfait

greek yogurt cacao nibs walnuts and chia seeds

We’ve all heard about breakfast being one of the most important meals of the day—and it’s true!  And what better way to jump-start your day than with a brain food boost! I like this recipe for its simple preparation, but also because it’s packed with nutrient-dense foods.  Yogurt supplies protein and probiotics while walnuts and chia seeds give you a boost of omega-3 fatty acids.  And you can’t go wrong with cacao nibs and mixed berries with their antioxidant, immune boosting powers.  Eat this meal for breakfast or resize the amounts for a snack.  Either way, it’s a great way to keep those brain cells healthy.
