The right way to start your day

It's been so long since I have written! It's just all this running around trying to get myself ready to move in T-minus 3 days. Tick Tick Tick

Don't even get me started on how horrible craigslist has been.

But speaking of getting started I wanted to share how I like to start my day. I'm pretty picky breakfast eater. I can never figure out what I want in the morning. Yogurt is one of my favorite things and over the past year I have totally made over my yogurt intake.

I stopped eating the completely processed and saccharine filled yogurts like Yoplait and Dannon lite and fit. They may have few calories but they are filled with artificial sweeteners which have been linked to cancer. I switched to greek yogurt which is fairly low in calories and has a ton of protein and only has 9g of real sugars.

It's way better for you and keeps you filled for a long time.

But since Greek yogurt tends to be on the sour side much like plain yogurt. So I usually add fresh fruit and cereal but since it is winter fresh fruit is hard to come by. My solution? Frozen fruit pureed and then mixed with the yogurt. It tastes pretty darn delicious.

Give it a try. You won't regret it, I promise.


  1. Yum, B! I just picked up both at the store yesterday and will definitely give the puree a try, I was slightly microwaving the frozen fruit before and it just made for a weird amalgam of watery partially thawed-sometimes too warm- fruit and thick yogurt. Needless to say, I was doing oatmeal and raisins more often than not. Thanks for the tip!

  2. yummy!!! sounds delicious! i am a huge fan of yogurt and definitely need to jump on the greek yogurt train because that sounds delightful. i also like to spice the morning up with oatmeal and a add maybe a tablespoon or a teaspoon (depends on my mood haha) of low fat peanut the oatmeal another kick and deifnitely adds flavor!

  3. Thanks ladies! Greek yogurt is so worth it but you definitely have to give it time to really get into it.
