Plain Yogurt with Grape Nuts and fresh fruit

A great healthy breakfast! It is really good, and healthier than mixing yogurt with granola.

Mix 1 cup plain low fat yogurt with 1/2 tsp. splenda
Top with 1/2 cup grape nuts
Pile sliced strawberries on top (also try blue berries, raspberries, and more!)

***I like to drain plain yogurt for a few hours in the fridge. I do this by lining a mesh colander with a coffee filter and placing it in a large bowl, with something lifting it at least 1-2" off of the bottom of the large bowl. Flip the yogurt container over into the coffee filter, but don't remove the container. Just leave it in place, flipped over.
Leave for 3-8 hours.
This makes the yogurt thicker and more rich.
