Greek yogurt with fruit

Greek yogurt has twice as much protein as traditional yogurt, so it's the perfect foundation for a substantial morning meal. Enjoy a 6-ounce container of nonfat Greek yogurt (plain or flavored) topped with 1 tablespoon chopped, toasted nuts (walnuts, almonds, pecans, or any other variety) or 1 to 2 tablespoons crunchy whole-grain cereal, and add half a banana, 1/2 cup berries, an orange or another piece of fruit on the side.
