Here’s a quick & easy “pick-me-up” snack to get you over that after lunch (and afternoon) hump!
With summer right around the corner, many people are altering their diets by reducing the amount of carbohydrates and/or cutting out dairy (in order to help reduce the amount of water between your skin and your muscles so that the muscles really pop).
And for others, they are realizing that consuming some dairy products just doesn’t agree with their bodies. Which is a much more frustrating, and often times debilitating, problem to have.
So, instead of giving up dairy completely, try cultured coconut milk yogurt. It is rich in fiber, calcium, vitamin D and B12, and depending which kind you purchase (plain, unsweetened), fairly low in sugar as well.
See below for macros with 1 cup Greek yogurt instead of coconut yogurt.
- 6oz cultured coconut yogurt (unsweetened)
- 1 toasted whole grain waffle; I like Van’s brand
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 2 strawberries, chopped
- 1/2 apricot
- 1/4 kiwi
- 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
- 1 teaspoon cacao nibs (optional)
- Toast the waffle and add it to a bowl.
- Add the remaining ingredients.
