Jamie says: I woke up the other day and thought- wow, I am 24 years old! How time is flying so quickly all of a sudden. My first cousin got MARRIED this weekend! I no longer sit at “the kids table.” And I have less than a year until I am finished with grad school. Here is a recipe that I wrote when I first started grad school (over a year ago now) for a program my classmates and I developed called Get Healthy Together.
Yogurt Fruit Blast
- ½ cup fresh fruit, i.e strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, grapes, melon, peaches, pineapple, pears, banana, kiwi, and/or mango
- ½ cup fat-free light vanilla yogurt (Publix)
- ¼ cup low-fat maple brown sugar granola (Cascadian Farm or Bear Naked)
- Wash, dry, and slice fruit (if applicable).
- Pour ½ cup of yogurt in a bowl. Add fruit to the yogurt. Sprinkle granola on top. Serves: 1. Enjoy!
Sweet and delicious! The creamy vanilla yogurt, juicy fruit, and crunchy granola go oh so nicely together.

- Fun fact: Dietetics students and registered dietitians (RDs) often use nutrient analysis software to determine how the nutrient content of a meal, snack, or day’s worth of food and drink compares to an individual’s nutrient needs.
