Great Things About Greek Yogurt - Clean Eating, Written by: Kayte Corrigan

People are hooked on plain, non-fat Greek Yogurt - clean eating made easy! Some people might even go as far to say they are addicts, but what’s so great about the Greek stuff? All yogurts are excellent sources of calcium, potassium, protein, zinc, and vitamins B6 and B12. Greek yogurt has a thicker, creamier texture because the liquid whey is strained out. It contains probiotic cultures and it’s lower in lactose, fewer carbs but has twice the protein of regular yogurts, making it the ideal recovery snack.

Greek yogurt is not just a snack, it’s so versatile and can be used to make recipes healthier, making clean eating super simple. Swap out eggs and oil in baked goods for Greek yogurt. You can also use it instead of full-fat sour cream, heavy cream, mayonnaise, or cream cheese in recipes. Think about using it to replace high-calorie ingredients in dips, sauces, salad dressings, smoothies, and desserts.

It’s also a great way to start your morning. Mix in a little nuts, fruit or muesli for a balance of carbs and protein. Remember to always get plain yogurt so you don’t have the added sugar.
