Exercising on weekdays is a bit tricky. I find myself cutting some routines a little short, rushing to eat something quickly, take a shower and go to work.  But Saturdays and Sundays are another story: I can indulge, start with a nice run, top it with some weight training, do the full 90-minute P90X yoga.  Once it’s all over, I relax and enjoy a nice breakfast.   Lately, I’ve been hooked on this yogurt concoction because it is refreshing, not too heavy,  a well-deserved reward after working out.

I wish I could give credit to the source for this “recipe” – so simple that it hardly qualifies as such.   I saw a version in the net several months ago, never saved it, just kept it in my memory as something to try.  Maybe the original had honey and a different kind of nuts, but at any rate, start with the green apple and yogurt, add whatever you feel like, including  your favorite cereal, and you can’t go wrong.

I use non-fat yogurt to keep the fat content to a minimum, but you can definitely go for the full fat type, it will be just a tad more decadent, but still good for you.
