Fitness Tuesday recipe: Triple Berry Granola & Yogurt

     Today, I wanted to share a quick & easy breakfast. This can be made the same day or ahead if need be. I called it a triple berry granola & yogurt. The name comes from the triple berry yogurt granola that I used from Sprouts. You can use any granola or yogurt type though. Below, I am going to breakdown the ingredients alone with benefits of that item.


  • 1 cup Plain greek yogurt
    • High in protein, can aid in digestion, heart health & weight loss (source)
  • 1/2 cup Triple Berry Granola 
    • May help lower your cholesterol, aid in preventing heart disease & cancer. Oats make it high fiber & iron(source, source)
  • 1 cup Strawberries, sliced
    • Regulate blood sugar and insulin levels, lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, obesity, & heart disease. In those with osteoarthritis, it has been shown to help reduce pain & markers of inflammation and oxidative stress. Boost immunity, help with brain health. (source, source)
  • 1 tbsp Local Honey
    • Contains pollen, enzymes, & antioxidants. Helps build an immunity to some seasonal allergies. Can help treat ulcers and diarrhea. (source, source)
Usually, I add all the strawberries, granola, & then the honey into the bowl of yogurt. Then, I mix well until blended. 

The I used frozen since that is what I have at the moment. The granola that I used is similar to the frozen triple berry mix that I bought in the store. It has a few blueberries, strawberries, & raspberries in it (just enough to make is a triple mix. Sometimes, I eat this for breakfast or I will eat this as a snack in the afternoon if I am hungry & I do not want a meal. 

Make sure that there is not a lot of added sugar in the granola since you are adding some in form of honey & that from the strawberries. Be careful to not added to much since granola can be high in calories.

I would love to know how everyone else eats their granola. 

Peace & Blessings, everyone!
