Winter Greek Yogurt Bowl

Keep  healthy  eating  simple; this  Greek Yogurt Bowl  has only 4 ingredients  and makes a great breakfast, lunch or recovery snack.
It  takes  time and effort to be the healthiest version of yourself. But I hope to make  it a bit  easier for you this year. Remember, the prize could be shaving years off of your age, because there is a strong relationship between lifestyle and biological age.

Today I have a delicious recipe  for a recovery snack.. I call it Winter Greek Yogurt Bowl because I’m using seasonal citrus, frozen wildblueberries and a teaspoon of maple syrup.  After 40 minutes of resistance training, this recovery snack   provides the  protein necessary for muscle protein synthesis ( 23 grams of protein). Not only is it  high in protein, it’s also great source of fiber (8 grams per serving ), and  provides  60% of the daily value for vitamin C and 30% of the daily value for calcium (based on a 2000 calorie diet).

This winter, don’t hibernate from a healthy lifestyle and remember,  small changes made consistently will ultimately lead to more positive days and less frustration than  multiple changes made all at once.
