5-Minute Honey Yogurt Quinoa Parfait

Tracking Pixel5-Minute Honey Yogurt Quinoa Parfait

This post is sponsored by my friends at General Mills just in time for their newest addition to the Big G cereal family: Cheerios + Ancient Grains!

First things first: the red in those pomegranates just makes me feel all PARTY.

Breakfast party? Extra coffee? Yes?

Lately breakfast has had me completely wrapped around its tasty little finger. First it was the eggs, and now it’s this yogurt parfait with crunchy cereal, chewy quinoa, and snappy pomegranate seeds.

You guys, this is getting really awesome and a little bit weird.

Like, where’s my lifetime breakfast of oatmeal?

What has food blogging done to me?
