Some days I can easily get all my protein needs in and sometimes its hard.  I find that starting off my day off with a high protein meal makes it easier throughout the day for me to get it all in.  I try to avoid convenient protein products, but sometimes I may need to sneak it in.

Here is a snack you can have any time of day or just to simply start your day off. Keep in mind you can add your own fruits, just make sure you stick to a yogurt with no artificial sugars. Just plain!

This particular mix has 27g of Protein, 23g of Fat and 25g of Carbs.  If you want your yogurt to have less fat, put less nuts and you can do away with the chia seeds.  You can just go with the plain yogurt and fresh fruits.

High Protein Yogurt

  • Fage 2% Greek Yogurt (You can also use 0%)
  • Kiwi
  • Blackberries
  • Walnuts
  • Chia Seeds

You can get very creative with plain yogurt especially if you have a sweet tooth! I’ve also made this with chocolate and granola. See my previous post on craving Oreos and opting for this high protein alternative. What I really wanted were the Oreos?

 

Let me know when you try this! Would love to hear about how you like your yogurt!
