cookie dough greek yogurt


Hmm. Totally not sure how to start this post. Or what to write in general. SO HEY. HI. HELLO. 

Here's some news! As if I'm not already totally obsessed, I'm becoming even MORE infatuated with healthy treats lately. Yup, I didn't think it was possible either. But it is, guys. It gosh dang IS.

I totally 1111100009% blame this issue of mine on Instagram. Seriously, whoa. There is a wealth of people out there posting beautiful photos that make me drool my eyeballs out {what?} over perfectly presented bowls of overnight oats, yogurt, nuts, and berries. I may or may not be becoming one of those people. HAAAAAALP.



Instagram is making me think it's totally a normal thing to lay the fruit in a perfect pinwheel, sprinkle it with pretty things, and take 10 minutes holding my iPod over my food trying to get the perfect picture. Gone are the days when I just mixed up granola, yogurt, and fruit and ate it right then and there. 

HEEEECK to the no. I have to make it PRETTY. Even if it means eating cold oatmeal or mushy fruit for breakfast. Meh fave.

{if you wanna follow my pretty food problems, click here. come to the dark side.}

Anyhoo, seeing that I follow about 400 people posting pretty food by the minute, it's no doubt, my issue is only getting worse. I wouldn't say it's a bad thing though. I'm becoming inspired to satisfy my sweet tooth with healthy things. No, not just an apple and peanut butter. Way too boring. 

ENTER cookie dough greek yogurt. YAAAH, I todes went there. And you should too. It tricks your brain into thinking you're eating something totally indulgent and calorie-laden. But nope, you're not. Take that BRAIN!!


P.S. If you need help justifying eating cookie dough for breakfast, don't worry your pretty little heart. I got chooo back… Top it off with banana slices and raw almonds. BOOM BANG POW SHEBANGG! Breakfast.

  3. Ha, Pinterest does the same thing to me (though that seems to be inundated with a lot of delicious looking not-so-healthy treats:). I love Greek yogurt and this looks like a fun way to have my sweet fix in the evenings. Thanks for sharing!
