Elevate Greek Yogurt With Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Greek yogurt is a great source of protein and beneficial bacteria that help maintain a healthy gut. It also contains calcium, which is essential for strong bones. Extra virgin olive oil is a staple of the Mediterranean diet, which is known for its numerous health benefits. It's high in healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants, which can help reduce inflammation and lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
To enjoy them together, simply drizzle a small amount of extra virgin olive oil on top of your Greek yogurt. You can also add other toppings, such as chopped nuts, fresh fruit, or honey, to make it even more flavorful.
Not only does this taste great, but it also provides a balanced mix of protein and healthy fats, making it a great option for a quick and satiating breakfast, snack, or dessert.
