Fruit Salad and Yogurt
If you're trying to lose weight, avoid the flavoured varieties with additional sugar. Get some plain Greek yoghurt that's low in fat. Add bananas, apple slices, blueberries, and chia seeds to the mix. You can even add some cornflakes or granola to it if you've had a hard day.
