Mediterranean Morning Mix

This is one of Andre and my staple breakfasts.  It is so good and really healthy as well.  It contains 22.5 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber. This will keep you full until lunch time. 
I will usually cut up the fruit and divide it evenly between two bowls.  So all measurements listed is per serving i.e.  when I say ½ a cup of strawberries it means that it is ½ a cup of strawberries per person. 

1 kiwi, skinned and sliced
½ an Orange
½ an Apple, I prefer Fuji or Gala
½ cup Strawberries
½ oz. slivered Almonds
¼ cup dry curd cottage cheese
½ cup Liberte Greek Yogurt, this specific yogurt actually contains a whopping 18 grams of protein per ¾ of a cup.  You can purchase it at Costco in a two-pack for about $7.99 or at Sobey's and Community Natural Foods 
¼ tsp of cinnamon (or to taste)

Serve right away. 

Variation: Hawaiian Morning Mix, replace the Orange with pineapple and the almonds with chopped macadamia nuts.
