WHAT IS IT??
Greek yogurt is made by removing most of the excess liquid from the yogurt making it a richer and creamier product.
Removing all the excess liquid increases the nutritional value of the yogurt since it doubles the protein content found in regular yogurt, helping to keep our appetite satisfied until the next meal!
So it is perfect for those who want to build muscles
Greek yogurt is still very high in calcium (20% of your daily recommended amount) and often lower in carbohydrates compared to regular yogurt.
Greek yogurt is also an excellent source of probiotics ( good bacteria) which is needed to prevent bloating and gas problems, so very important for a normal digestion process.
Plain non fat yogurt has only 60 calories. You can also find the fruit flavored one for those who like that!
SMART TIPS FOR MEALS RECIPES:
Greek yogurt can work as a natural substitute to many higher-fat ingredients!!
For example, use it as the base dressing for your favorite salad! So instead of using the high fat and calorie sour cream and mayonnaise, try the plain and non-fat Greek yogurt instead!
Also you can use it as a dip for your fresh fruits!! Not only is it a delicious way to dip your fruits, but also makes a lower-calorie, still tasty snack!
In Kuwait, Greek yogurt can be found in LuLu Hypermarket or Sultan center, Salmiya
Personally I love all recipes with yogurt!! It gives a unique taste to the food!!
Fruit yogurt is my favourite!!
