For instance, so far today, I had a Greek yogurt for breakfast. I might have had more, but honestly barely remembered in time for that! Check out the Yoplait version, by the way.

I tried to find a recipe online that was healthy to no avail, so here is my version.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 c egg noodles (or 1 serving of noodles of your choosing)
1/4 cabbage (no measurement actually .25 of a cabbage head)
1/2 small onion
1/4 c water
garlic salt to taste
- Boil noodles according to directions - usually 6-8 minutes.
