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.
