Yummy Yogurt

A healthy meal plan will include several small meals throughout the day, which will aid in weight loss and blood sugar maintenance. Plan to eat a well rounded (protein + carb + good fat) meal every 2-3 hours.

This is a quick and easy, high protein and well rounded snack/meal. Complete with good fat (walnuts), valuable carbs (apple), and lean protein (yogurt).

1/4 c. organic plain low fat yogurt
3/4 c. organic vanilla low fat yogurt
1 green apple cubed
handful of small walnut pieces

Food Prude Facts:
Organic, Low Fat Yogurt is high in protein and good bacteria (probiotics) which are essential to a healthy gut, calcium, B vitamins, potassium, and magnesium and low in fat, sugar and calories. (Best when plain and vanilla are mixed, so you get the sweet flavor of vanilla, but with a reduced sugar content!)

Apples are known as a cleansing food, great source of fiber, antioxidants, flavonoids and vitamin C. Green apples are higher in C than red. Apples are best raw and unpeeled, cooking them destroys 70% of their disease fighting flavonoids which are contained in and near the skin.

Walnuts are a good fat, high in Omega 3, which works to lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and raise HDL (good cholesterol). Walnuts, in particular, have significantly higher amounts of omega 3 fatty acids as compared to other nuts. They are also high in fiber, B vitamins, magnesium and antioxidants such as vitamin E.


  1. This is one of my favorite meals and I have forgotten about it lately...great reminder. What a small world! I just saw that Jen from Redhead Riter is the comment above me. CRAZY.

  2. That's funny Holly. I was feeling that whole 'small world' thing with you, my neighbor knowing you, our kids going to the same school, etc.
