In every one of my travels i try to order something ‘so Greece’, ‘so Turkey’, ‘so Paris’, you get the idea… but occasionally i discover something thats great for traveling… Story time. When my family took a vacation to Europe in 2006 we went to this little, hole in the wall, Greek Restaurant. This restaurant was no joke, it was to the T – Greek. None of this ‘Americanized Greek’ ish that we seem to get locally. They had folk dancers, wine in wooden flasks, baked brie with fresh raspberries and yogurt with sliced apples, almonds, grapes, and a drizzle of honey. That. was. dessert. Healthy? Yes, and oh so satisfying.
Alas, my new favorite ‘on the go’ snack/treat was established and i take this stuff everywhere. Do you realize it has protein, ‘staying power’ aka almonds, fiber, and all natural sweetness? This goes everywhere.
Greek Yogurt Snack
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt (i use Fage 0% or 2%)
1/2 apple (chopped)
5 almonds (chopped)
6 grapes (halved)
1 teaspoon Honey
Place Greek Yogurt on the bottom and top with remaining ingredients. Don’t stir until you’re ready to eat or everything will be soggy and missing that delicious crunch!
