Yogurt bowls are a quick easy and delicious way to start your day. You can make them really light and simple if you struggle to eat in the morning, or super-rich and packed with fruit, oats, nuts, and seeds if you need something more filling.
Always start with at least one ingredient you love and gradually build to include different flavors and textures. Also, consider prepping your toppings ahead of time to make breakfast a lot easier; make prep time as pleasurable as possible by; playing some music, speaking to a loved one on the phone, or watching something. Practice whenever you can and eventually breakfast will be as simple as; grab, sprinkle and enjoy!
