Quinoa Peach and Yogurt Parfaits

Summer is winding down already, can you believe it? In many areas that means back to school and fresh, ripe peaches. Those two things happen to be perfect companions! Paired with nutritious quinoa in these peachy quinoa and yogurt parfaits you have a perfect packable treat for your child’s lunch.

Quinoa and yogurt parfaits are also great to prep ahead for quick-to-grab breakfasts or snacks. Spending a bit of time before the coming week to prep breakfast and lunch items can help reduce morning chaos! Another great lunchbox recipe featuring quinoa is our Caprese Quinoa Power Bowls with Basil Pesto.

Wildly Organic Coconut Sugar and Coconut Syrup are much better choices than refined sugars. Not only do they taste amazing but because they are not overly refined they retain more of their natural nutrients. Coconut sugar in particular is a lower glycemic sweetening option which means a gentler impact on blood sugar.

Adding some quinoa peach and yogurt parfaits to your child’s lunch (or yours ) is also a great way to get healthy, complete protein into the day. Quinoa is packed with protein and nutrients and also has a gentler impact on blood sugar.
