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.

Breakfast Parfait Ingredients

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.

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.

Final notes:
  • 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.
