I am a creature of habit and routine. And part of my routine is to always have breakfast. Some days it is a protein bar hastily grabbed on the way out the door, others it is an egg scramble with veggies. But, lately, more often than not, my breakfast consists of Greek Yogurt + Piece of Fruit + Flax Seeds.
I love this combination, it goes great with berries, citrus, peaches, plums, basically any fruit you enjoy. I usually use the plain 0% greek yogurt (whichever organic brand is on sale that week). Sometimes I buy a large container and when they are on sale I buy the small individual cups (my local grocery has 10 for $10). This is a nutritious, protein-packed, refreshing treat to have for breakfast, lunch, or a snack (just adjust the portion size accordingly).
This is mind-numbingly easy, and anyone can do it! Here are some pics, well because pics are fun:)
Chobani Honey Flavored Yogurt -- 130 calories, 15 g protein
1 Medium Organic Peach -- 31 calories
Flax Seed (1 Tbsp) -- 55 calories, 2 g protein
Add it all together and tada.....
This treat fills me up for the entire morning and I'm not even hungry until around 1 or 2. (I have a mid-morning snack of 10-15 raw almonds). This greek yogurt fruit combo does have a relatively high amount of carbs and sugar, but they are all naturally occurring from the dairy and fresh fruit.
