Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl

Research tells us that people who eat breakfast have more mental clarity and energy AND can better control their weight and blood sugar levels. Here is a quick grab and go breakfast idea that is full of nutrition.  Greek yogurt provides protein, calcium and probiotics (people who consume milk and yogurt better control their blood pressure as shown in the DASH diet studies). The fruit provides more vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants.  Nuts  contain unsaturated fat which can help you better control your cholesterol level!

 

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup plain non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup any fresh fruit (from frozen will work well too–just rinse under cool water)
  • 1/2 ounce any unsalted nuts
  • 1 T uncooked Old-Fashioned oats
  • 1 t honey or maple syrup

Directions:

Place yogurt in a bowl (or a large mug if you’re “on the go”). Top with fruit, nuts, oats and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. Enjoy! (Makes 1 serving)
