People who know me through this blog surprised to know I'm a creature of habit when it comes to my eating habits at home. I love exploring new restaurants and new dishes, so I rarely visit the same place or order the same thing twice. There is nothing I like better than having something different!
However, I usually eat a few items that I love over and over again at home for breakfast and lunch. Just like my egg & veggie medley and the egg & veggie muffins, this is a staple for my breakfasts. Depending on how hungry I am, I'll either have this right away after my eggs or wait to have it as a mid-morning snack.
These yogurt and fruit cups are great because there are no artificial sweeteners or preservatives and I reduce the amount of waste that I create by using reusable containers. And of course, it's portable and in individual portions, so I can just grab and go in the morning!
Sweetener of choice*
Fruit of choice*
Topping of choice*
Optional extras that you'd like to mix in (i.e. - Protein powder, Fiber powder, etc.)
*See below for what I like to use!
1. Place an equal amount of yogurt into each of your individual containers.
*I used Greek yogurt this time, but I switch it up depending on the week!
2. Mix in any extras that you would like to use.
3. Mix in the amount of sweetener, to your taste.
* I like using agave nectar. Other good sweeteners to use are honey, applesauce, maple syrup, mashed persimmons, date sugar, etc.
4. Top with your favorite fruit!
*In the dead of winter when I took these pictures, I used frozen berries and nectarines, but I prefer to use fresh ones, of course.
*Alternatively, mix everything together well to make a mixed yogurt! Sorry for the bad picture. :(
5. Put your topping of choice into individual little containers.
*I use fiber cereal most of the time, but I have also used granola, nuts, etc. for just a bit of crunch and flavor!
6. Admire your neat little breakfasts for the next week.
These are quick, simple, tasty, and nutritious. All I could I could ask for in a breakfast or snack!
Alternatively, you could also mix your large tub of yogurt with the sweetener and mix-ins before putting them into the individual containers, like mixing batter for muffins. :) It will save a bit of time, but I kind of like the assembly line method too!
What are your favorite "pre-packaged" breakfasts?
