8 Nutritionist Approved Breakfast Hacks You Will Love

This post was created in partnership with Dannon Light & Fit. I have been compensated for my time commitment. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.

A balanced breakfast sets the stage for the rest of the day. But as much as I know I need to eat a nutritionally sound breakfast, as a mom of two, mornings never seem to go as planned (except that we will be late getting out the door- I can always plan on that). That’s why I rely on Dannon Light & Fit Original Greek Yogurt as my go-to option for making busy mornings less stressful. Whether I am grabbing a pre-portioned cup on the go to pair with a piece of fruit and some cereal or I am blending it into my favorite make-ahead breakfast recipe, my refrigerator is always stocked with Light & Fit.

And it’s not just me who relies on yogurt to cut stress on busy mornings. I have partnered with Dannon Light & Fit to reach out to some of my favorite dietitian friends to get the low-down on their favorite #BreakfastHacks to see how they incorporate yogurt into their morning routines to make the start of their day a little less stressful.  So why do dietitians love Greek yogurt so much? As a nutrient-dense food that tastes delicious and often contains a good source of protein (with Greek yogurt containing more protein than most regular yogurts) and calcium – there is little not to love. On top of that, yogurt is such a versatile food – you can eat it alone, pair it with your favorite foods, or use it as an ingredient in recipes from baked goods to desserts. I personally am a huge fan of Dannon Light & Fit since they offer so many delicious varieties I never get bored of my breakfast choices and their better for your options fit any active lifestyle.

From smoothies, to pancakes, to muffins, and everything in between, your breakfast options with yogurt are limitless.
