The only problem I’m having with yogurt these days is that I’m not sure whether to give it to my kids for breakfast, lunch, dinner or all of the above. Apparently the live cultures found in yogurt are all the rage for fighting off the flu. But I also just read an article that encouraged yogurt consumption close to bedtime because it is relatively high in the amino acid L-tryptophan.
More importantly, don’t you just love the kitty bowl? Sur La Table.
1 cup plain greek-style yogurt

In a small mixing bowl stir together yogurt, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla. Add chopped apple and stir again. Serve garnished with extra chopped apples.
