This is the breakfast I have lived off of for the last couple of months. I know last week I posted about eating grains for breakfast, and here I am talking about fruit, but as much as I love my steel-cut oats, I love my fruit and yogurt even better. I still eat this breakfast a couple of times per week (I just eat my grains for snack instead).
This mango berry blend from Target is the tastiest frozen fruit I have found. I have also tried just about every non-fat Greek yogurt out there and I think Yoplait is by far the yummiest. Here’s how this breakfast breaks down. Two cups of fruit, 140 calories. One cup of yogurt, 150 calories and an 1/8 cup walnuts, 80 calories. So for 370 calories you get a healthy, low-fat, and delicious breakfast. I find that the addition of the protein packed Greek yogurt and just a sprinkling of healthy fat containing walnuts fills me up and gives me more energy than a bowl of cereal. I truly believe that this breakfast is the reason behind my hair and nails growing faster and stronger. The best benefit of all, my complexion has gone from sallow to rosy. Even if I end up having my gall bladder removed, I will not go back to my old eating habits. I have found my own little fountain of youth in healthy eating.
