Honey-Lemon Fruit Parfaits

Lance Washburn


I like to add a little cinnamon to my couscous when I go to fluff it for a little extra flavoring, and throw in some raisins.

This is another one of those recipes that I like to prepare ahead of time, and incorporate it into my daily meal plan on the days that I work.
