Greek Yogurt Crunch

Greek Yogurt Crunch

Here is another great meal you can take on the go!  Greek yogurt is very low in sugar and high in protein, so it’s a perfect choice for those who are diabetic or for anyone who wants to limit their intake of refined sugars. FAGE Greek yogurt is the brand that I see most often at grocery stores. FAGE is the leading dairy company in Greece (www.fageusa.com).  3 Greek Gods (www.3greekgods.com) also makes organic Greek yogurt.  As a good alternative to low-fat granola and wheat germ use your favorite organic low-fat crunchy cereal.  Remember to look for at least 5 grams of fiber or more per serving.  Nature’s Path is one of my favorite organic cereal brands, and they offer a great healthy selection especially for kids as well (www.naturespath.com).

1 serving

1 cup fat-free Greek yogurt

¼ cup low-fat granola

1/8 cup toasted wheat germ

½ cup mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)

Pour the yogurt into a medium bowl or travel container and top with granola, berries and wheat germ.
