YouTube Video: The Balanced Bowl

I’ve been having this breakfast for a really long time and it never gets old. Come to think of it, I rarely share these on my social media! I never planned on sharing the recipe because it was way too easy, but after a ton of requests I made a tutorial! The fruits are wonderful sources of natural carbs and sugars while the yogurt base is the protein and probiotic punch! Of course, superfoods are extra vitamins, minerals and healthy fats! You can make a smaller serving for a wonderful snack or make one even BIGGER 😀

This is only one combo I do, so if you find that it may lack fat, sugar, protein, etc., then adjust the measurements to your liking. For vegans, use dairy-free yogurt or omit it all together. Ketos and low-carbers should use nut butter and avocado with low-sugar fruits. Many of my other favorites include almond butter, coffee, goji berries and of course, CHOCOLATE!
