Eat it: Going Greek Does A Body Good

1 cup PLAIN nonfat Greek yogurt with assorted berries and organic honey

This is my snacking obsession: PLAIN nonfat Greek yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and a drizzle of organic honey. Plain nonfat Greek yogurt has been a staple food in our home for the past three years. We buy it in bulk (big tubs of it at a time) because it can get expensive if you regularly purchase the little single serving cups sold in the grocery store. Greek yogurt is extensively strained, removing much of the liquid whey, sugar, and lactose, giving it a thicker consistency. Not only is it tangier, thicker, and creamier than regular yogurt, but one cup provides 24g of protein, 25% DV of calcium, much less sugar, and those healthy bacterial cultures that we need to stay healthy. Going totally plain and nonfat can be a little difficult, especially if you are used to overly and/or artificially sweetened yogurt, but adding in delicious berries and a touch of organic honey can fix that problem. Enjoy!
