Food Tip For a healthier yogurt, go Greek. It has twice the protein and half the sugar of the sweet type.
Greek yogurt like the Fage brand is all the rage these days. It’s tangier, thicker and better for you than the traditional kind. Even fat-free Greek yogurt maintains the creamy consistency of sour cream. The reason: Greek yogurt is strained to remove most of the liquid whey and sugar, resulting in a product that boasts twice the protein and half the sugar. Dress up your plain yogurt with this simple and filling Mediterranean Breakfast recipe. It’s easy to prepare, and it can be customized to every season. To gain the most benefit, take 15 minutes to sit down and savor the taste of the food as you eat.
