Heavenly Hellenic Yogurt

We visited Greece before we had children (I was actually 3 months pregnant with my oldest.) We spent two heavenly weeks enjoying beaches and Greek culture while ferry-hopping our way across the islands. On the island of Santorini (one of our favorites), we were staying at a small pension and had fresh Greek yogurt and honey with a few berries every morning. It was amazing! So simple, but so delicious and a great way to start the day without feeling weighed down. This version adds in some nuts and seeds that we have come to love. These add a nutritional blast to this high protein, low fat, and great tasting meal.

by Lori

1/2 cup Fage (pronounced fa-yeh) Greek yogurt - this is the closest I've found to the yogurt we ate in Greece
1 teaspoon hemp hearts
1 teaspoon ground flax seed
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 Tablespoon slivered almonds
1/4 cup blackberries
1/4 cup raspberries
2 teaspoons honey

Making this dish is pretty self-explanatory. Start with Greek yogurt and add other ingredients of your choice for added taste and beauty. Enjoy!
