Go Greek…So You Can Wear The Toga!

11 Jan

So, everyone is on their New Year Diet…When I went shopping the other day I noticed that the yogurt section was pretty wiped out.  This leads me to the subject of Greek yogurt…Way better all the way around…Nutrionally better and not like eating flavored snot, Greek yogurt has a thick rich texture without the bitter aftertaste.  Nutritionally it is packed with protein…A 6-ounce serving of Chobani nonfat plain Greek yogurt, for example, contains 100 calories, 18 grams of protein, 20% of the recommended daily value of calcium and 7 grams of carbohydrates. The same size serving of Dannon All Natural nonfat yogurt may have slightly fewer calories (80) and some more calcium (30% of the daily value), but it’s got half the protein (9 grams) and almost double the carbohydrates (12 grams).   I am not a diet guru or Oprah’s new diet ONE but this seems pretty straightforward!  If the toga fits….
