Greek Yogurt Flatbread | Happy Mother’s Day!

by simplylife on May 13, 2013

Happy Happy (belated) Mother’s Day! I hope everyone had a wonderful day and was able to celebrate the mothers in their life.  I am grateful beyond words to have such an incredible mother and mother-in-law! :)

My mom is truly one of the sweetest people I know.  She has taught me so much about being confident, independent, optimistic and kind to others.

I’m also incredibly proud of my mom.  In the past few years she has completely changed all her eating habits and has been making healthy decisions, even when it hasn’t been easy.  Every time I go home, she has added new healthy foods to her diet and is even introducing me to new ways of preparing them!

So consider this post a hug THANK YOU to my mom for all her support, encouragement, patience and love.  It’s also my way of saying Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful women out there who provide support, guidance and nurturing to others.

Though a nice meal out or a beautiful bouquet of flowers are definitely deserved, I tend to show my appreciation by making and sharing food.  So consider this recipe for Greek Yogurt Flatbread as my way of showing gratitude to all the mother’s out there.  It’s a healthy recipe that’s the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of meals.

It’s make with Greek Yogurt, which provides a thicker, more substantial texture and it doesn’t take too long to prepare. This recipe made about 4 small pieces; I will definitely be doubling it next time as these were gone in mere minutes.

    Sounds wonderful. I would take a gift of food for any special occasion, ANY day! Actually, that’s exactly what I did for my mom too, but it was food AND wine ;) Yeah, softened her up a bit first, haha. We had wine, cheese, crackers and fruit together on Saturday night. IT was perfect.

    Thank you sweetie pie for this tribute with such meaningfull words! Being a mom to you has been a blessing beyond words. You inspire me with your character of kindness, generosity of time, the highest expectations of yourself while being humble, compassion, encouragement, constant respect, and a smile that melts me down :) Your life choices have helped make my years of motherhood a joy!!!

    The flatbread looks amazing. I don’t eat wheat anymore, but I know the boys would love it. Plus, it looks easy enough (a big plus since I “can’t” bake…).

    The older kid came to visit on Saturday, and we went out for lunch, played basketball and had fun. On Sunday we went to a kids’ park/zoo with the kid and had a great time.

    This flat bread looks divine! I love the idea of including yoghurt – I imagine it makes it really fluffy.

    I love adding Greek yogurt to baked goods – why not bread too?! These look lovely!
