5 min Healthy Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowls

I call this as my fruit custard. I can have this anytime of the day for my breakfast or for my lunch or simply as a dessert. I simply add whichever fruits I have to a bowl of Greek yogurt, top it up with some seeds, nuts and honey and you are sorted. A Healthy and a filling breakfast, plus light on the tummy as it is packed with probiotics. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that help boost our immune system and help us in stomach pain and diarrhea.

Greek yogurt is yogurt that has been strained to remove most of its whey, resulting in thicker consistency than unstrained yogurt, while preserving its taste. It has more protein than milk which is essential for your body and specially if you are a non meat eater. It's a great source of calcium. It has a higher protein content than normal yogurt, which helps improve body health. Greek yogurt is one of the healthy food for those who run low carbohydrate diets. Sugar content in Greek yogurt is lower than ordinary yogurt. Greek yogurt also has less sodium content than normal yogurt.

I generally top the Greek yogurt with whichever fruit I have. Mostly berries like Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries and Blackberries. To talk about health benefits of berries they are loaded with Vitamin A, Vitamin B9 , folate, Vitamin E, Vitamin, Vitamin K , Iron, Potassium, Magnesium. These nutrients help in improving memory, eyesight, reduce inflammation , anti-aging  etc. In short they are a super food. Similarly seeds and nuts are loaded with different vitamins and minerals essential for our body. So in short I have a super food on my plate.

Our theme in Blogging marathon for the next 3 days was to pick a protein rich ingredient. The moment I read protein rich ingredient, I decided to pick this simple and humble, my favorite Greek yogurt. Other recipe with Greek Yogurt if you like to check is Yogurt Parfait
