It's the final day of Tasty's Make-Ahead Meal Plan!

YOU DID IT! In the past week, we hope you've learned some clever meal-prepping tricks that'll inspire you to get cooking. With a little planning, eating well doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. To wrap up the week: a creamy yogurt parfait for breakfast, veggie tacos, the rest of your pasta for dinner, and a peanut butter and banana flatbread for a snack.

DAY SEVEN RECIPES: Find complete instructions below. For a printable doc with the entire week's recipes, click here.

Peanut butter and bananas are a classic combination, and this parfait is the perfect excuse to eat them together. Just layer all the ingredients (including that crunchy granola you made) into a glass or bowl — and breakfast is done.

¼ cup honey-roasted granola (meal prepped, see recipe)

Half a banana, sliced

1 teaspoon honey

Preparation:

1. In a bowl, add the Greek yogurt and peanut butter and stir to combine.

2. Place half of the yogurt mixture in the bottom of a large glass, and top with half of the granola, sliced banana, and honey.

3. Top with remaining yogurt mixture, granola, sliced banana, and honey.

4. Enjoy!

Note: Don't throw out the second half of the banana — you'll use it tonight.
