Live Healthy with Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt

Have you noticed the flooding in your grocery yogurt aisle of Greek yogurts? Having lived in the Mediterranean I can tell you there is something smooth and delicious about their dairy products. So, I am happy to see them make their way to America. Greek yogurt can be a part of a healthy lifestyle.  It’s low in calories and packed with calcium and live bacterial cultures. Here are few reasons why you should go Greek!

High Protein
Greek yogurt is high in protein, which helps promote fullness. A typical 6-ounce serving contains 12 grams, the amount in 2 ounces of meat. This particularly appealing to those of you who are vegetarians. With twice the protein of regular low-fat yogurt and 0% fat, all you need is a spoon of
Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt to get and stay on a nutritious track, without compromising on great taste. (Note: Oikos Greek Nonfat yogurt: 12 g Protein (24%DV), Regular lowfat yogurt: 5g protein (10%DV) per 5.3oz.)

Low Carb
Going Greek is a smart choice for low-carb eaters. Made from an authentic Greek straining method, Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt removes some of the milk sugar, lactose, making Greek yogurt less likely to upset the lactose-intolerant but still provides the creamy-thick taste to your daily routine.

Low Sodium
Greek yogurt is also low in sodium. Too much salt can boost blood pressure and increase risk of other heart problems.

Although I focus on the healthy aspect of a person’s life, Greek yogurt help you lose weight by keeping you full on fewer calories. The key is sticking to plain, nonfat or low-fat varieties. People tended to lose nearly 1 pound every four years if they added a daily serving of yogurt to their diet, probably because of the way bacterial cultures affect our intestines.

Diversify your enjoyment of Greek yogurt! Mix it with seasonings like garlic, dill, and parsley to create a unique dip for carrots, celery sticks, or cucumber slices. Toss in some berries or high-fiber granola. You can also substitute Greek yogurt for sour cream on tacos, for example, or for the eggs and oil in baked goods. It’s an acceptable replacement for fatty ingredients like cream cheese, mayonnaise and butter. To help get the recommended three servings of dairy on a daily basis, enjoy your favorite Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt every day.
