Easy Healthy Breakfasts: Greek Yogurt 3 Ways

Why is Greek yogurt good for you?

Great source of calcium, potassium, zinc, protein, and vitamins B6 and B12. It also contains probiotic cultures. It is lower in lactose and has twice the protein content of regular yogurts.

The best Greek yogurt is the plain, unsweetened, low-fat, kind with the least amount of additives.

Greek Yogurt with Roasted Plums


Preheat oven to 350F. Cut plums in half and place them on a baking sheet, cut side up. Sprinkle plums with coconut sugar and spices (cinnamon and cardamon are great). Roast for 30min (why not meditate while the plums are roasting? Or try one of those 20 min exercise routines and feel great to start the day). Place two halves of plums over greek yogurt and crumble some granola over. Pretty easy right?

 

Greek Yogurt with Peach and Toasted Sesame Oats


I love this one! To make toasted sesame oats, melt 1 tablespoon salted butter in a frying pan over medium-heat. Add 2/3 cup of rolled oats and 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds and cook, stirring, until golden. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and cook for a minute until the mixture caramelizes. Set aside to cool slightly, then spoon a little over each portion of Greek yogurt, with sliced peaches and a spoonful of honeycomb.

 

Greek Yogurt with Pomegranate and Chia Seeds


Divide most of the pomegranate seeds between portions of Greek yogurt and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of chia seeds per portion. Crush the remaining pomegranate seeds to finish each bowl with a little fresh pomegranate juice. Feel free to add honey if you like a sweeter taste. Hello gorgeous! You are on your way to a better you.
