Quick, Easy, and Healthy Dessert!
This is my go-to sugar-craving blaster.
.25 c yogurt (I only had vanilla/banana fat free yogurt from TJs, but plain or greek is better)
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa
honey (only if you’re using greek or plain yogurt, I don’t find that I need any extra sweetener for flavored yogurts)
Puffins cereal (or any cereal of your choice)
Mix the yogurt and cocoa thoroughly (chunks of cocoa are yucky), add honey to taste, and stir in cereal. It’s sweet, crunchy, and protein-packed! Much better for me than going for the ice cream or a cookie or something like that. It will also not give you a terrible sugar spike, and you will be good and full until morning!
A healthy diet consists of balance, variety, and moderation!
- Balance: eating from all the food groups; meaning that you are eating whole grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy (or dairy substitutes), fats, and proteins everyday.
- Variety: eating the different types of foods within each food group, don’t only eat tomatoes as your vegetable source everyday for the rest of your life.
- Moderation: don’t consume excessive amounts of one food or food group.
