greek yogurt & almond butter breakfast {w/ recipes}

It all started in high school. You see, until then I had never thought of yogurt as a breakfast food. Strange, I know. Yogurt was always a lunch item in my house, but high school sleepovers at my friend Amanda's house introduced me to yogurt and granola - one of the best breakfast combinations ever (and I LOVE breakfast).

Then came Greek yogurt. Thick, creamy and slightly tangy. At first I was sure I was eating sour cream. But all the labels said it was of the trendy and nutritious, Mediterranean cultured variety.

Fast forward to April 2013. Two friends and I are visiting Amanda in New York, where she makes an amazing, protein packed breakfast to energize us for the day. Whatever is good, whatever is healthy, add it to yogurt and granola and you are ready to go!
