Tasty Tuesday: FAGE Yogurt Topped with Fresh Strawberries and Bananas

8 May

 

Now that spring is here I found strawberries at a good price!  I chopped them up along with a banana and sprinkled them over FAGE Greek yogurt.  So delicious!

I’m not really a morning person so I need a breakfast that is quick and easy to make.  This does the trick!  I love FAGE Greek yogurt.  I’ve tried switching it out for less expensive yogurts, but then I never want to actually eat the yogurt.  FAGE yogurt is just so much creamier.  It’s almost as indulgent as ice cream.  Almost.  The strawberries were a fun touch.  I hardly ever buy berries because they’re so expensive, but berries are so healthy and delicious.  My favorites are raspberries and blackberries, but they weren’t on sale.

I know that FAGE makes yogurt with a side of strawberry, strawberry gogi, and raspberry, but I’m not into the jelly-like consistency.  I much prefer the fresh fruit.  That said, FAGE is committed to making healthy foods.  The Philippou family motto in 1926 was “We would never make a product that we would not give to our children.”  The ingredients are 100% natural.  I just happen to prefer fresh fruit.

Yogurt and fruit are such a part of Greek culture.  I remember when I was a child, my father always had to have plain yogurt.  He ate it plain too.  The fruit came afterward and was eaten by itself.  I like to jazz it up.  I like fruit and yogurt together.  I guess that  makes me very American.

Tasty Tuesday: Tzatziki in the Morning

22 Nov

One of my favorite bloggers, Joy of … wait for it … Oh Joy!, likes tzatziki sauce.  In a recent post, “My New Favorite Breakfast Sandwich…” she calls tzatziki sauce the “extra special ingredient” to the breakfast sandwich she’s been making and enjoying that includes egg and avocado slices on a toasted English muffin.
