Apparently beer isn’t the only thing you can serve in a beer glass. As I was supposed to be clearing my mind and focusing on my yoga practice, I received knowledge in the form of a beautiful breakfast presentation. I always trusted that yoga could bring me inspiration and guidance.
This “recipe” focuses on layering. Layering one nutrition packed ingredient over another and another.
- 1/2 c plain yogourt
- 1/2 c berries or fruit cut bite size
- 1-2 t each ground flax-seed, hemp seed, chia seed and cacao nibs
- cinnamon powder, a few sprinkles
- 1 t coconut flakes, toasted (optional)
- 1/2 T maple syrup
Select a clear glass and layer the yogourt, berries and seeds. Insert a straw or chopstick down the side of the glass in two spots, making a slender tunnel, then carefully, slowly pour in some maple syrup. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Breakfast Parfait Print Ready Recipe
I can’t begin to explain how delicious this was. I can’t wait to get back to Shri Yoga to see what else I can conjure up.
- Just started watching a beautifully filmed movie called “Nora’s Will” and noticed a refrigerator full of Post-it notes. Am very curious to know why a fridge would be full of notes. Being born without the organizer gene, I try to pick up on others’ systems. Whatever I do know about organizing, I owe to Susan Portnoy. After about 10 hours of her 5 night lecture series, I assimilated a thing or two.
- Thanks to Mona Keddy and Barrie Risman at Shri Yoga for heaps of inspiration and guidance. I apologize for meditating on food under your tutelage.
- A very special thank you to my new friend Isaac Lyles. You are wrong about football, the Giants will beat the Cowboys next year, I have it on good authority, but oh so right about M. F. K. Fisher’s “The Art of Eating.“ I hope that reading this 744 page tome doesn’t interfere with my blogging time or strain my thumbs from the sheer heft. Now that I have the quintessential food writing bible, I’ll be under more pressure to avoid words like delicious and scrumptious, which I’ve recently learned are signs of ignorant food writing.
- For your musical entertainment, a new take on Gimme Shelter.

your photography,- specifically the lighting,composition and colours are overtaking your writing. Who cares anymore what you have to say, the pictures are delicious!

I met with a pro photographer for 2.5 hrs this am to learn the basics in operating a camera. I’m anxious to find out if I’ll be able to translate anything I “learned” into action.
Aside from all that, I agree these photos do look good enough to consume. Wish I could say the same about some upcoming meat snaps! And I blame you for encouraging me to tackle beef. But, I love you all the same!

Confront your food stresses with humour and bravery!! I am sure your upcoming recipe will be gorgeous.You are becoming as artistic as Julie!
I agree – your photography makes me want to hurry to make this parfait… and with a beer glass too. Eating chocolate nibs in the morning amidst all the other beautiful ingredients? You’re my kind of gal! The granola I make is very similar, minus the hemp & chia – I posted it several weeks back!
Happy New Year and a question.. is your daughter on the East Coast or West Coast? Because I’m in LA!
