I don't like to eat breakfast right away in the morning. I get up about 6:00 am but don't eat until I've been at work a little while, usually around 8:30. For the last several years I've been bringing the same food to work every day. An oatmeal packet, a yogurt and a banana. Every day, a Quaker Apples and Cinnamon oatmeal which has now evolved into Nature's Path Flax Plus oatmeal because my tastes have changed. The Quaker oatmeal seems way too sweet to me now but the Flax Plus has just the perfect distribution of salty and sweet. Seriously, I love it. My yogurt has also evolved over the years. I was into Activia vanilla for ages. It was expensive and small and that too eventually started tasting too sweet. There was a time when I thought it was the best tasting thing out there but now I can barely stand it. A year or so ago, I wanted to switch to Greek yogurt which took some getting used to. I finally found some Chobani flavors I really enjoyed like black cherry and passion fruit. Well, with 17-20 grams of sugar (the total recommended daily allowance by the American Heart Association) I started to rethink that too despite the fact that I really, really liked it. My latest and greatest breakfast yogurt is exactly what I wanted to share with you today. I so love my new breakfast that I've been known to "Mmm" aloud at work while I'm eating it.
Chia, another super food to add to the list.
Top Ten List for yourself. I swear that they get the credit for my most fabulous HDL reading (67 thank you very much- anything over 60 is considered protective against heart disease).
