National Nutrition Month: Tip #13

Try Greek yogurt! It is thicker, richer and higher in protein than regular yogurt. It is also higher quality and much less tangy, which makes it more satisfying. In fact, most people can eat non fat plain greek yogurt when they dislike regular non fat plain yogurt. Because the yogurt has been strained, it is much less tangy. You can buy sweetened greek yogurts, which are usually lower in sugar than regular sweetened yogurts, but typically plain greek yogurt is very palatable and lower in calories.

The running joke at my house when I eat Greek yogurt is, “Look! Mom’s eating lard again!”. It is THAT thick.
