MMM...why greek yogurt is my new best friend!

For Love of a Cupcake
Today's Challenge/Topic is : 
(as stated in last weeks post HERE)
It's an open week!
 Tell us all about YOU and what's been going on with your fitness journey!

Since it's an open week...
I want to tell you why greek yogurt is my new best friend!
I think it's Kelly Ripa's too!

Well...I start every morning with some greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and granola! It actually keeps me feeling full until my next meal! I'll even eat it again for an afternoon snack!

See...I have a hard time with my sugar crashing...and this has helped stabalize my sugar levels until it's time for me to eat again. No more sugar crashes!

It has tons of protein, no fat and very little sugar/carbohydrates...not to mention all the vitamins!!

I have to admit...I don't like eating the greek yogurt by's kinda grody. BUT...I don't mind eating it with the fruit and granola because of its benefits!

This is what I had this morning...but rest assured...the greek yogurt will be my mid morning snack!

whole wheat toast, peanut butter and banana!

**Do you have a go-to snack?**

  1. The yogurt with the fresh fruit look sooo delicious! I definitely need to start having a more meaningful breakfast. This would be the perfect start!

  2. Yum! It all looks good! This morning I had toast with a little bit of strawberry jelly & a berry smoothie! I am getting hungry already (ah!), so I am going to eat some apple slices, that my hubby cut up for me, ha!

  3. greek yogurt is one of my favorite snacks!

  4. I've heard so much about greek yogurt I think I will have the hubby pick some up after work. I love yogurt with berries! I don't do granola because of the sugar but I love LOVE kashi go lean as a substitute. If you haven't tried it, you should, it's delish and an extra bit of protein. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. I definitely ALWAYS have greek yogurt on hand! It's so yummy!

    ps, I just followed you on instagram (laymel) hope that's alright :)

  6. I love greek yogurt with trail mix and berries! I would have to say that is my go to snack!

  7. Hi i’m Heather! I have a question for you! Please email me :)

  8. I like yogurt too and peanut butter. I like that quote!

  9. I've never had Greek yogurt and I have heard it was good. I think I will try it

  10. I may have to try this with granola and fruit. I have a really hard time eating yogurt period because of the texture I think. And like you said greek yogurt plain is truly grody. I've tried and failed.

  11. Yum that looks soo good. Might have to try it.



I love to hear whats on your mind! I read every comment and it makes my day!!
