Greek Yogurt

Posted on February 16, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

It seems like I add Greek Yogurt to anything and everything. For breakfast, lunch or dinner, it is somehow incorporated. I discovered it at Trader Joe’s a couple years ago and have never looked back. It has all of the probiotics and live cultures that regular yogurt has. Just without all the sugar.

-I add it to store bought salad dressing to make them lower fat or lower sodium per serving.
-Try it on taco’s, burritos or inside omelets to replace sour cream. It has the same texture and consistency as sour cream. It is just a tiny bit more tart. But my husband never knows that it is replacing the sour cream 😉
-Add it to smoothies for some high protein and low sugar snack or breakfast.
-Spoon it over some berries with a little honey for a breakfast or dessert.
-I even used it instead of sour cream in beef stroganoff. And it tasted amazing!

Why to try it: Yogurt promotes intestinal and vaginal health, improves lactose intolerance, builds stronger bones, enhances immunity, lowers blood pressure, and may even have anticancer and weight-loss effects. In a recent study in the International Journal of Obesity, researchers found that obese adults who ate three servings of fat-free yogurt a day as part of a reduced-calorie diet lost 22% more weight and 61% more body fat than those who just cut calories. A plus for Greek yogurt, in particular, is that it doesn’t give you the sugar overload of what you usually find in U.S. grocery stores. To save on fat and calories, reach for a low-fat version.- http://eating.health.com/2008/02/01/worlds-healthiest-foods-yogurt-greece/How this helps you expand your horizons and try it out.
