Greek Yogurt with Berries Breakfast Bowl

by Rachel Stuck, RDN

Looking for something on the sweeter side first thing in the morning? Then this combo is a great option for you to consider. Get creative with a few simple additions like cinnamon, ground flax seeds, chia seeds or grated ginger to name a few! 

Greek yogurt is a high protein breakfast item that also contains probiotics. Probiotics are good for the gut because they help maintain the population of the good bacteria in our gut. Plain Greek-style yogurt can pack in anywhere between 10–18 grams of protein making it a great addition to your morning routine.
