What's in it for you?

Wheat germ is a powerhouse of energizing nutrients, like vitamin E, B vitamins, and magnesium. Just a little wheat germ provides a big dose of these nutrients, which fight damaging free radicals and unlock your body's energy.

Beautiful bones aren't the only things that calcium-rich foods like yogurt give you. Calcium also helps keep your muscles moving and your heart beating.

Aim for a healthy diet by eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day. The blueberries and strawberries in this recipe count for two.
