As Greek yogurt only increases in popularity due to its high protein content so do the creative ways to combine it with other healthy, muscle-friendly fare. As a great high protein morning meal, this will require you to do a little prep the night before. Here you will want to use plain Greek yogurt to keep the sugar count down and either steel-cut or regular whole oats. Combine one cup of the yogurt, ½ cup of oats and a dash of vanilla extract. Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning add in your choice of fruit and 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein. Stir and enjoy.
