PAPAYA, FRUIT, CHIA AND FLAX YOGURT BOWL

.

I have heard the saying "Breakfast of Champions" and always thought of eggs and toast however this is another perfect example of a good heart healthy breakfast of champions.  

The mornings in our household can sometimes be busy but one thing is for certain breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should be done right.  This recipe was made when I was actually cleaning out my pantry and had some deliciously ripe fruit just ready to be eaten.  I was hungry and needed some good energy and extra fiber, which also helps to keep you fuller for a longer period of time.  This bowl was incredibly easy and quick to put together.  Its packed with nutrients and most of all fresh and delicious.  This also makes a great bowl to take for lunch.  Healthy habits, healthy bodies and feeling great is what this yogurt bowl represents.  Feel free to use a dairy free yogurt if you are lactose intolerant.
