Getting Into The Greek

Greek Yogurt......I tried to add this to my diet about a year ago...My dietitian recommended trying it. It has about twice the protein of regular yogurt, less lactose, and less sugar.

I love yogurt! BUT, greek yogurt left me desiring for more.

But, lately, I have been wanting to give it a try again....Maybe, it's because I've been trying to refine my yogurt eating....I've been trying to skip yogurts with no artificial colors, high fructose corn syrup, modified starch, or added sugars, etc...So, I tried a few types of greek yogurt last week....Nothing to write home about.

AND then, yesterday, I gave Chobani Yogurt a whirl. I LOVE it! It has a little bit of fruit on the bottom and has nothing but authentic ingredients....(a little embrassed to admit this) But, I have tried the blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, and black cherry and liked them all....Raspberry was my favorite. They have several other selections too.

Do you like greek yogurt? Why or Why not? Do you have a favorite brand?

I love greek yogurt. It's more filling to me. I'm a big Chobani and Fage fan.
