Mix it up yourself HEALTHY YOGURT!

This is my go to lunch just about everyday! So much better for you & has real fiber too! Switch up the fruit as you like & I usually go with fresh fruit that is in season & frozen fruit that I have frozen myself when it was in season. This batch I used fresh peaches. I also use apples & blueberries or raspberries. Cantaloupe is also a great choice! I buy a 2 pound container of PLAIN YOGURT. Then I do the following,
1 Cup yogurt
1 cup fruit chopped up
1 TBS Ground Flax Seed
1 TBS Honey
1 TSP Ground Cinnamon
Dash or 2 of Vanilla
Mix this up & place in airtight container & keep refrigerated until lunch time! This with some unsalted nuts or whole grain pretzels or crackers, a cup of tea & you have LUNCH! So much better for you & a more generous portion too than those prepackaged yogurts + you are helping the environment by using less throwaway plastic!
