Black and Blueberry Yoghurt Bowl! One of the best ways to start your day is with deliciously topped off yoghurt or milk. It is quick and easy to make and gives you your calcium, protein and fibre fix. If you choose your topping wisely, you can not only kick off your day with a butt load of fibre but also add some antioxidants and of course vitamins! Making sure you include enough fibre in your daily diet is important since most people do not even come close to the daily recommended amount of fibre.https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/002470.htm

Good to know
- Storing: If you want to prepare the yoghurt in advance, or take it with you, store the yoghurt and the toppings in separate airtight containers. Make sure you store the yoghurt and fruit in the refrigerator (or cooler bag if you want to take it with you).
- Shelf life: The yoghurt will stay good for a few days once removed from its original packaging if stored correctly.
- Vegan: To make this recipe vegan, use vegan yoghurt and a high fibre cereal substitute.
- Organic: To make this recipe organic, only use organic ingredients.
- Lactose-Free: Use lactose-free yoghurt.
- Using fruit: Make sure your fruit is ripe before you use it. If it isn’t, it can impact the flavour of your creation in a negative way.
- Using fresh fruits and vegetables: Make sure to wash fruits and vegetables that do not require peeling.
Nutritional Information per Portion
Know what you eat
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at labels that list nutritional values per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
