Diet Food. Savory Yogurt Lunches. Its what you eat when you want a box of delicious pasta.

Diet and exercise kids. Its so important. I’ve been attempting to come up with different foods to eat other than a tasty tasty plate of carbs. Which means plenty of meat, veggies, cheese, and nuts. I’ve been toying with making yogurt lunches this last weekend. They are easy enough to pack into a lunch and they only take about 5 to 10 minutes to make each, and best of all they are fairly filling. Those of you that think tzatziki is as versatile as ketchup should love this! I’ll be happy with these for about a week until I’m absolutely sick and tired of yogurt. For all of these, the base is 2 slices of onion, chopped, a clove of garlic, and 1/4 cup chopped cucumber. If you plan on having it every day you can just pre chop the onions, garlic, and cucumber, with salt and pepper. I’ve also tried adding quinoa and chia seeds to this. Its not bad. Adds a bit of a crunchy factor and makes it even more filling. But it does add on the carbs.
