Miracle Greek Yogurt Breakfast

17 Jul

Remember that really busy summer I mentioned in an earlier post?

It’s still going on.

I finally had a free weekend and had all these ideas for posts that I was planning to put up and then, sadly, didn’t get around to it. Before the craziness begins again this weekend, I wanted to let you in on a little secret…

I have discovered a miracle.

It comes in the form of a breakfast.

The kind of breakfast that leaves you full for hours with energy to plow through your morning to-do list barely realizing that noon is quickly approaching and you lunch eagerly awaits you. I actually forgot to eat lunch one day. That never happens.

I kid you not when I say that I am always ready to eat and constantly thinking about my next meal or snack. I power up in the morning with a yummy green smoothie. When I get to work I dive into breakfast and about an hour later, my stomach and mind would wander to what I can eat next. My miracle breakfast concoction makes me forget about lunch…seriously.

It is LOADED with nutrition. The Greek yogurt has tons of protein to keep you satisfied, calcium to promote bone health, and probiotics for a healthy gut. The oatmeal has filling fiber and B vitamins while the berries are loaded with antioxidants. The yogurt is naturally sweetened with dried fruit and berries leaving you with a breakfast containing ZERO added sugar. Want to know the best part? It’s DELICIOUS!

Miracle Greek Yogurt Breakfast

Makes 1 serving

1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

1/2 cup uncooked oats

1 tablespoon raisins

Dash of cinnamon

1 cup fresh assorted berries

In a bowl combine yogurt, oats, raisins and cinnamon. Top with berries. Enjoy and don’t think about your next meal for hours…

    I will definitely have to try this for breakfast! Looks delish! And I am always starving later in the morning, so if this fills me until lunch, then even better 🙂
