Eating Healthy: Organic Strained Greek Yogurt

Eating Healthy: Organic Strained Greek Yogurt

Last week I posted something on Facebook about Greek yogurt. I have been seeing commercials for this stuff, and wanted to give it a try. I wasn’t sure what flavors would be good, so I grabbed some vanilla, honey, blood orange, and pineapple. I figured if I was going to have yogurt, granola would go good on top. I grabbed a box of granola, and went to town.

The yogurt is good. I have been eating it for breakfast, and it is enough to hold me over until lunch. There are so many flavors to choose from, too. There are also a lot of brands to choose from. I couldn’t tell you what brands I like, but if it doesn’t say Greek on it, I avoid it. Look at me… an expert on yogurt! The ones that I have been eating are also organic. And upon further research, this stuff is also strained. I have no idea what that means… but hey, it sounds healthy!

I had some good responses on the Facebook post. Some folks like yogurt, and some don’t. I am not saying I will be eating this every day for the rest of my life, but my buddy Nash got me hooked on cottage cheese, and I eat that every day for lunch. I get these little fruit and cottage cheese things that are only 100 calories. I toss in some pepper and am good to go. Those come in several flavors, too. I like the one with pineapple. The one with strawberries is pretty great.

Since I started eating healthy, it is has been tough finding snacks that are not only good but good for you. Cottage cheese and yogurt seem to be… of course, I need the fruit flavors to get me through… but it’s fruit. I have heard that you can eat as much of that as you want. Granted, I am still counting calories. But still, the fruit helps add flavor to some things… like yogurt and cottage cheese!

Do you like yogurt? What are some of your favorite flavors?
