Breakfast Yogurt Parfait

I discovered Uncle Sam cereal while on The South Beach Diet. Prior to this, I had never seen this cereal in the grocery store, although it has been around some 100  years!  It has 10 grams of fiber in a serving, but does not taste like "cardboard" as do so many high fiber cereals, and I have actually grown to really like it.  (It also has flax seeds in it.)

This makes a great little breakfast "on the run" and is really quite filling! (You could substitute your favorite granola or other cereal in the place of Uncle Sam, if you prefer.)

1 container vanilla yogurt
1 cup sliced strawberries,blueberries or mixture
1/2 cup Uncle Sam cereal 

Split container of yogurt between 2 dessert dishes.  

Add 1/2 cup mixed berries to each dish and sprinkle 1/4 cup cereal over top of each dish.

Serves 2

This sounds like a delicious breakfast. I've never heard of Uncle Sam cereal. I'll have to look for it next time I'm at the store!
