What's For Lunch: Greek Yogurt with Strawberries and Kashi Cereal

This has become my standard lunch -- or breakfast -- of late: Greek yogurt sweetened with a spoonful of local honey, some fresh fruit (in this case sliced strawberries), a dash of cinnamon, and a handful of Kashi GOLEAN Crunch!. What I love best above Kashi is that it is an excellent source of protein, with each one-cup serving providing 9 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber, and 17 grams of whole grains. Plus the ingredient list is fairly short, and is quite pronounceable, earning another high mark from me. When I'm too lazy to make my own crunchy granola, I find that Kashi is a worthwhile substitute.

Greek Yogurt with Strawberries and Kashi Cereal
makes 1 serving

1 spoonful local honey
ground cinnamon
4-6 whole strawberries, sliced
1/2 C Kashi cereal

1. Add the Chobani Greek yogurt to a bowl. (Chobani has been quite hard to find in town of late; apparently it's quite popular! Whenever the grocery store is stocked up, I make sure to pick up at least 2 large containers of the stuff.)
2. Stir in the spoonful of honey. Sprinkle with a dash of ground cinnamon.
3. Top with sliced strawberries (or other fruit of your choice) and Kashi cereal.
4. Eat!
