What's for Breakfast?

Chobani Pineapple greek yogurt with flax seed granola and raspberries.  I'm going to lick the computer screen now.

You know, it's true what they say about yogurt: once you go Greek, you never go back.  I am a yogurt-a-day fanatic, and I switched over to Greek this year.  It's way thicker and creamier, has twice the protein (12 g), and less sugar.  Regular yogurt tastes too sweet and too thin to me now.  I've tried a lot of the brands, and Chobani is my fave.  They have great flavors, but the best are pineapple, pomegranate, and peach.  It's more filling than regular yogurt without more fat or very many more calories.

Thanks for clearing up the whole Greek thing for me. I've been curious.

I think I could live strictly on Chobani Peach. If I have my daily one in the am, I am totally craving another by dinner :)

The whole protein thing amazes me. Some flavors have 14g!

Chobani completely! I remember my first taste - I couldn't believe it - yes! I thought, "this is how yogurt is supposed to be." Not sure what other brands are trying to make of our tastebuds and the amount of sugar. Yes, the protein is great and the creamy, fruity luciousness . . . It has been a while . . . got to get going to the store.

I dont like yogurt. I've tried in many times, in many forms and I just can't seem to handle the taste of it. This bowl you have looks so yummmy.. I wish I could figure out how to like it!

As a lactose intolerant yogurt lover, I was super pleased to discover that greek yogurt doesn't upset my stomach (regular yogurt KILLS, and I had to give it up a few years ago). Apparently they strain all of the whey out of it, which means much less lactose and a happier belly!
