My version of…. Going Greek.

If you aren’t eating Greek yogurt yet, get on that shi*. It has 3x the protein of regular yogurt and is thicker and creamier. This breakfast has endless possibilities, you can use any type of fruit, nut, nut butter, and granola that you want.

Recipe: Serves 1

Scrape a container of Greek yogurt into a bowl. I love vanilla and plain. Add in a fruit, granola, dried fruit (if desired), nut and/or nut butter. I added in dried Goji berries, blackberries, buckwheat granola, vanilla granola, Maca powder, almonds, and almond butter.

Benefits:

Greek yogurt * All the same benefits as yogurt, like calcium, but with more protein and less sugar!

Blackberries * Have an even higher concentration of antioxidants than the famed blueberry.

Goji berries * One of the greatest fruits on the planet for your health. Sadly, in the US we can only easily get dried Goji berries. Goji berries  contain beta-carotene, B1 and 2, Vitamins C, and other vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Almonds *A great source of monounsaturated fats! These are the fats that raise HDL (good cholesterol) levels and lower LDL (bad cholesterol) levels!

Maca * Maca has been used by the Peruvians for thousands of years. It is claimed that Maca helps endocrine function which includes sexual function, metabolism, fertility, digestion, and brain function.

Buckwheat granola * Buckwheat has even more benefits than other whole grains. It has B vitamins for energy, more iron, extra fiber, more protein, and the flavonoid rutin!
