Greek Yogurt in 7 Ways

Excited to announce a new series on The Chriselle Factor, and it’s all about HEALTH & FOOD! Not sure why it took me this long to come around to this subject, but I guess there’s no better timing as my pregnancy is about to end, and my new journey as a mother is about to begin. I’ve always been health conscious, but never did I believe in sacrificing all the yummy things out there just to watch my “diet”. It was when my sister Jane temporarily moved to LA where I discovered the beauty of not only eating healthy, but also having FUN with it. I’m definitely not one who is capable of whipping up a gourmet dinner, I mean….I can barely make a pancake without burning the whole house down! (I’m sure this will have to change once Chloe arrives.)  All these recipes and food related articles will be incredibly easy, and I promise if I can do it you can too (with your eyes closed).

I wanted to kick off this series with one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast- Greek yogurt! Besides the thick consistency and yummy taste, I could go on and on with the benefit of Greek yogurt- it’s packed with probiotics, a great source of protein, packed with B12, etc etc. But besides that it is incredibly versatile and makes for a heavenly, creamy treat! Since I’ve been pregnant, greek yogurt has been more than just a grab-and-go snack to default to when nothing is in reaching-distance. Now that I’m homebound more, I’ve had a lot more time to think of creative ways to add to my yogurt. Here are 7 ways to add a little more flavor to your greek yogurt in the morning, one for each day of the week!

PS. You might noticed my recommended fruit measurements are a bit higher (1 cup vs 1/4 cup) and that’s because I like to have my yogurt with a side of fruit! If you guys are only looking to add fruit into your yogurt, then feel free to substitute 1 cup for 1/4 cup.
