Good to know
- Storing: If you want to prepare the parfait in advance, or take it with you, store the yoghurt and the toppings in separate airtight containers. Make sure you store the yoghurt and the fruit in the refrigerator (or cooler bag if you want to take it with you).
- Shelf life: The yoghurt will stay good for a few days once removed from its original packaging if stored correctly.
- Vegan: To make this recipe vegan, use vegan yoghurt and grape-nuts.
- Organic: To make this recipe organic, only use organic ingredients.
- Lactose-Free: Use lactose-free yoghurt.
- Using fruit: Make sure your fruit is ripe before you use it. If it isn't, it can impact the flavour of your creation in a negative way.
- Using fresh fruits and vegetables: Make sure to wash fruits and vegetables that do not require peeling.
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at a label where the values are given per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?100 grams Nutrition Label Mixed Berry Grape-Nut Parfait
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
