I have loved and enjoyed yogurt for years. I have one pretty much every day for lunch. I also have loved Greek food for years, since I was a child and we were close friends with a Greek family.
I however did not know about GREEK yogurt until recently. It's totally yummy!
I am using it in my morning smoothie and it totally rocks as a substitute for sour cream, especially in recipes. Here's the low down on the nutritional in formation from a random Internet site for 6oz.
Greek Yogurt (Fat Free) vs. Regular Yogurt (Fat Free)
Fat 0g 0g
Carbs 7g 16g
Protein 18g 6g
Fiber 0g 1g
Calories 100 86
There's a ton more protein and fewer carbs, and the calories increase just a little, tiny bit. Most importantly for those of us who are trying to lighten up. It really adds that creamy texture you're missing if you're trying to cut calories. Thumbs up from Big Mama and Little Mouths, alike.
