Yogurt and honey are one of the greatest combinations when it comes to a healthy breakfast. Plain (greek) yogurt is overall an excellent source for proteins if you are not lactose intolerant. Besides protein, yogurt contains potassium, calcium and other essential vitamins which forms the base of a healthy breakfast. But not everyone can eat yogurt as it comes because of the texture and plain taste. That’s why it’s advisable to put honey as a natural sweetener to give your yogurt a new taste. It will be more enjoyable, healthy and when that’s not enough you can top it off with fruits and granola.
