The holidays are over and many of us are starting to think about more healthier choices. If you have been following my blog, you know by now, that my motto is “everything in moderation”. I am not oppose to a nice juicy steak and some fries, but at the same time I do enjoy my kale salad. Today I am bringing you a healthy and delicious breakfast. Your favorite granola mixed with honey vanilla greek yogurt, fresh berries and topped with an almond, date and apricot crumble. You can prep all the ingredients in advance and keep them in a separate containers for a speedy breakfast in the morning or use the mason jar to prep it the night before to take to work.
