Super Quick Yogurt and Granola Breakfast

Do you ever forget to eat breakfast? Sadly I have on occasion. I’m not sure how that happens but for one reason or another I go about my morning and don’t feel hungry but then all of a sudden hunger pangs and I’ve just realized that I missed my opportunity to start out my day healthy.
