Greek Yogurt
This is a favorite go-to-snack for me — greek yogurt with raw local honey, fresh berry and chocolate shards. It’s a great snack or dessert. Greek yogurt is thicker and richer than regular yogurt plus it has between 12 and 23 grams of protein depending on the brand you buy, […]

Yogurt, Honey-Bear Style


salad
This is a pretty good salad. Certainly good for you! In this one I put some greens, tomato, celery, radicchio, currants, pumpkin seeds with some olive oil and good balsamic vinegar. The crunch from the seeds and celery make it satisfying. Sometimes I will add chicken or tofu. Enjoy 🙂
