What’s all the Greek Yogurt Fuss About?
You may be wondering what all the Greek Yogurt fuss is about. Greek yogurt has been strained twice and therefor contains double the protein as regular yogurt. Remember, it’s the powerhouse protein that helps you to say satisfied between meals; helps you to heal after surgery and helps protect muscle tissue; and burn fat stores during the weight loss phase! So, definitely choose Greek Yogurt over regular yogurt. If you try it and don’t like it, try another brand because they all taste significantly different. When available, choose light versions over regular versions to limit added sugar and decrease calories. Greek yogurts are also getting upgraded! If you are craving something sweet try Dannon Light and Fit Greek Chocolate on Top (11 grams of protein, 100 calories). If you are craving something crunchy try Plenti by Yoplait which contains Greek yogurt, oats, flax and pumpkin seeds (avoid if you do not tolerate seeds).
