My Typical Breakfast - Quick and Easy...Again!

There's just something perfect about the texture, flavor, and temperature of yogurt. It is my usual breakfast...especially during the week. I just grab a single serving of yogurt - I use my grocery store's light version. Vanilla and raspberry are my favorites. Then I add some sort of fresh (or frozen during the winter) fruit. My favorites are strawberries and blueberries. Frozen blueberries are somehow really good in this. They stay frozen for a bit and the texture becomes really creamy...I just love it. Then I top it off with some kind of cereal, usually Fiber One! Fiber One is really a good cereal. You would think it would be cardboard-like, but it's slightly sweet, high in fiber (go figure) and just plan good. You can even use them as a replacement for chow mein noodles in haystacks! Sometimes, I even top it off with cinnamon, especially if I'm using Apple Pie yogurt. Anyway, with all the fruit, the fiber, and calcium and protein, this is a great (and easy) entry for Sweetnick's ARF Tuesday. Check out the other great entries for fantastic ideas.

Yum, I do the same thing and I love blueberries in yogurt too! Haven't tried Fiber One but I have used different types of granola on mine.
Where are you doing family medicine rotation, in your area? We get some here from UMC that work with our drs from time to time.

That looks very healthy and actually tasty too!

I wish I could eat dairy in the morning because this looks great! I bet with the addition of the Fiber One it keeps you going for quite a while.

I love yogurt and fruit for breakfast. I top mine with Grapenuts which adds a nice hearty crunch.

Gail - I'm in Clinton at MEA. It's been a lot of fun. Tomorrow is my last day.

Annie - It is tasty...I'd really like to try Greek yogurt sometime if I could find it.

Alisha - It makes a good light (especially if it's late) supper...I usually just add more fruit if I do that...some apple, peaches, etc.

Jeena - Thanks! i'll stop by.

Nirmala - I tried the new grape nuts circles things and they were really pretty good. I just think that the regular grape nuts might be too hard. Maybe not.

Stacy - :-)
