Three small foods that go a long way, I love this snack so much, I eat it every day. It’s cheap, comforting and fast to prepare. I take ½ to 1 cup of fat-free vanilla yogurt, add 3oz of granola cereal, and 2 tablespoons of wheat germ, and mix together. LOVE IT! Try it! It’s very good for you. I eat it because it helps my digestive system and it comforts me.
I recently went into Publix Super Market on Miramar and I was delighted to find that it was very clean and beautifully laid out. The way that the lights shone over the well-organized vegetables and fruits is breath-taking. I was there picking up my yogurt and granola, and I wanted to mention how awesome it looks and feels. I also picked some fresh ready-to-eat fruits that a friendly lady was cutting right in front of me. It made me feel special. I love Publix, the one by my house is clean and organized but not like the one on Miramar Parkway, so I try to do my shopping there as much as possible.
What can these ingredients do for you? First, granola is a mixture of rolled oats, nuts, and honey, which is baked until crispy. Oats contain antioxidants (substances in food which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to your body). Nuts have endless nutritional value, many of them are an excellent source of protein and fat, dietary fiber, and sometimes Vitamin A, B, and C as well as calcium and iron. Honey is a product of honeybees, a natural sweeter. Depending on the quality of the honey, it’s useful as an antimicrobial agent and antioxidant. Yogurt is rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin, Vitamin B6 and B12. And last but not least, wheat germ contains 23 nutrients, has more nutrients per ounce then vegetable or grain. Wheat germ can help in preventing the body’s ageing process and heart disease.
So you see, something so simple and easy to prepare can be so enlightening to your body and mind. The soft, creamy yogurt with the crispy granola and wheat germ can be a new revelation…..si…. Muy Yummy! Try my simple treat and tell me what you think.
