If you've been following along with me for a while, you know my obsession with yogurt bowls is a REAL thing. I'm guilty of having one almost every single morning for breakfast, but let me explain myself. Yogurt bowls are the bomb (unless of course you're intolerant to dairy - but don't worry because dairy-free yogurt options exist, y'all!!), and here's why I love them:
1. Plain greek yogurt is loaded with protein - about 20g in one cup.
2. Buy the whole milk or the 5% fat option and you're also adding quality healthy fat to your meal.
3. The topping possibilities are ENDLESS. This is the best part about it. You can make it different every single day (which I always do). It's like a blank canvas. I'm here for it.
Building a balanced and nutrient-dense yogurt bowl is easy, but I wanted to break it down for you so that you know you've got a complete meal in that bowl.
1 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tsp seeds of choice (I like to alternate between chia and flax - this adds protein and healthy fat)
fruit of choice (great source of carbohydrates)
1 tbsp nut butter (adds flavor and thickness, also provides fat and protein)
optional: nuts, pure maple syrup or honey (for natural sweetness), granola (added carbs - read labels carefully)
Place all ingredients in a bowl, snap a pretty pic (optional but totally recommended), and enjoy!
Gram your yogurt bowl!
