Mom's Parfait


OK, so everyone is telling me that my meals of the week contain some good ingredients and probably taste good but they look like animal vomit. So I decided to use some of Mom's recipes that are pretty and delightful and don't look like animal expulsion. This parfait is a favorite back home. My Mom makes this dish almost daily for the crew.
This is the recipe:
Name of Dish: Anytime of the Day Parfait
1/2 chopped apple, 1/2 cup chopped peaches, 20 chopped prunes, 1/2 cup chopped dates, 1 chopped kiwi, 25 red grapes (halved), 1 cup organic, lowfat, vanilla yogurt, 1 cup granola cereal with flaxseed, 1 tbspn flaxseed meal, 1 tbspn pumpkin seeds, 1 tbspn almond meal, 1 cup cottage cheese with pineapple, sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg.
This is full of good fibrous carbs from the fruit, good fats from the flaxseed, almond meal and pumpkin seeds and good protein from the cottage cheese. It is heavy in carbs so it would be good for post workout and breakfast. I wouldn't recommend it for late night. It has lots of anti-oxidents and vitamins & minerals. Overall, it's a very healthy dish and is good for variety with a sweet taste.
