Greek yogurt with honey and walnuts

What’s in a Greek breakfast? A good breakfast bowl with yogurt, a handful of nuts be it pistachios, walnuts or almonds and a few of pieces of fruit. Seasonal fruit make the best choice: apples and pears in winter, bananas are easy to get throughout the year, cherries and strawberries in late spring, peaches and apricots during the summer months.  The nuts will add an extra crunch and if you want a sweetener, go for natural honey. Greek honey has amazing varieties, with thyme honey being the most well known. But if you want to give your breakfast bowl a spin, why not try specialty honeys like fir or chestnut honey?

Greek yogurt will certainly keep you filled. You can get an extra energy from the nuts of choice, as they are rich in protein and fibber. Walnuts apart from their high content of protein, calcium and fibber are also rich in omega 3. Pistachios in their own merit, are a great source of calcium and a complex of vitamins such as vitamin E, B vitamins and vitamin K, which makes not only for a healthy, wholesome breakfast but an extra crunch to give your Greek breakfast bowl texture and this extra bit of taste you can find in simple things. And don’t forget your coffee, an extra pleasure to wake you up and start your day full of energy.
