The search for the perfect yogurt is a quest that’s been taking place in my house since I knew what yogurt was. My mom used to pack me low fat yogurt for lunch, and my friend and I would play a game where she would guess the flavor before I took it out of my bag. When I discovered that that brand of yogurt used some gross ingredients, I turned to Greek yogurt. There are a million different brands: some taste artificial, others are too sweet, others not fruity enough. I have found the perfect compromise, however: Open Nature Greek Yogurt. It’s the store brand at my grocery store, so it’s never too expensive. But the taste is tremendous! Creamy, perfectly smooth yogurt with delicious fruit on the bottom and no unappetizing ingredients.
When I make my most common breakfast, a yogurt parfait/bowl, I often use Open Nature Greek Yogurt. Here’s a simple example of a part of a balanced breakfast.
Red Fruits Yogurt Bowl
- 4-8 fresh strawberries
- 1 cup Special K with Red Berries
- one container of Open Nature Greek Yogurt, Black Cherry flavor
Wash strawberries. Remove leaves and and slice. Place in a bowl with cereal. Pour yogurt on top. Mix. Devour.
