You’ve heard the old adage — breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Starting the day with Greek yogurt, fruit and granola sounds like a balanced mix of protein, fruits and carbohydrates, but the versions found at breakfast spots like Tim Hortons contain excess sugar from the granola. Oikos makes a fruit-flavoured yogurt — add a sprinkle of seeds or nuts to replace the crunchiness of the granola and save in calories, fat and sugar.
