Greek yogurt is an excellent source of calcium (187 mg per cup), which can help improve bone health. It also contains probiotics, which support a healthy bacterial balance in the gut. Don’t buy those sugar laden fruit yogurts…they either contain way too much sugar or that awful artificial stuff. Plain yogurt contains about 7 grams of sugar compared to a low-fat, strawberry on the bottom versions that contains 22 grams (BTW women should only be getting 25 grams of sugar per day!)
Here is how you make a calcium rich, low sugar yogurt parfait.
- Greek Yogurt (full fat is OK)
- Frozen or Fresh Berries
- Granola or Ezekiel cereal (look for lower sugar versions or just use nuts)
Mix all together and enjoy!
