4 Healthy & Zesty Yogurt Toppings to Try

Starting your day with a bowl of low-fat Greek yogurt is one of life’s healthy pleasures. And the most delicious way to enjoy yogurt is with fresh, juicy fruit.

But when those peaches and fresh berries are not in season, donít succumb to the temptation to swirl something less healthy on the yogurt. Try these delightful toppings on low-fat yogurt; †they are easily available year-round and each one of them will give you a boost of good health.

Flaxseeds and nuts: Did you know the†omega3s in flaxseeds are more readily absorbed by the body when you grind the seeds. Mix them with almonds, walnuts, pistachios or another favorite nut for a crunchy power topping that improves brain and heart health.

Frozen berries: Thaw frozen berries and lightly mash them into the yogurt. Itís a simple way to give yourself antioxidants.†Berries are also a good source of digestion-friendly fiber, and they protect your body against inflammation and cell-damaging free radicals.

Honey and orange juice: This sweet, bright topping helps improve immunity and lavishes you with vitamins. Honey boasts health benefits that are almost too many to count. Not only is honey anti-inflammatory and anti-viral, but it also calms the nerves and lowers high blood pressure. Oranges add zest and Vitamin C to your low-fat yogurt.†What are your favorite toppings to add to yogurt?

Hmmm, most of the recipes are taking a healthy item and loading it up with tons of fructose and other sugars -- that being if you can even find a real yogurt with active cultures. I'm not sure that these are really that great for you health-wise.

Nuts can improve almost anything, as can the combination of honey and nuts.

Chocolate....that's the only thing missing from all of these. It really does make everything better.
