i really like Oikos greek yogurt. I buy the vanilla kind and add in blueberries, strawberries or raspberries and always a 1/4 cup of this high protein granola- oh it's sooooo good and fills me up for breakfast with less than 300 cals.
I'd also recommend any brand of Greek yogurt. I'm partial to the Chobiani brand, but I think most are fairly comprable to that one. I used to eat the Yoplait Light all the time, but now I get really bad intenstinal/digestive issues when I eat one that I never get having the greek yogurt. It definitely took me 2-3 tries to like it though, so give it another chance if it doesn't wow you on first bite.
I now love to have it with some granola mixed in for breakfast! Yum!

I was like KGLASIER2. I would always go for lite 80 calorie yogurts to save on calories until I started eating all natural greek yogurt. Now I only buy Chobani. They are located right in my hometown too!
No one can do it for me - I have to do it for myself!! Slow and steady wins the race.
Fage and Chobani greek yogurts. Yum! And with a powerful punch of protein!
I missed the Live Earth concert-- I was too busy stuffing coal into my styrofoam factory and enjoying some roast penguin.

I LOVE Fage Fat Free Greek yogurt . . . the ingredient list has 2 (yes, TWO!) items - skim milk and live cultures! I add my own fruit (pineapple, banana, and nectarine are my current favs) and usually a sprinkle of cinnamon. My husband, who has not been much of a yogurt fan, even likes it if I add a drizzle of honey.
I used to be all about the light and fit yogurt since it was low cal but one day I had this realization that I'd rather eat a good quality, nutritious yogurt at 150 calories than an 80 calorie yogurt made with fake sugar and probably dairy from a cow that took some whacky hormones (sad, but true) So now I splurge and eat Stonyfield organic yogurt! delicious! and better for you!
I LOOOVE having yogurt for a snack! I've tried this Source brand and the weightwatchers one(which is unbelievably tasty). I am loving strawberry, peach and raspberry flavoured ones! However, I'm new to the whole eating "healthy" and good nutrition thing, and even though I'd only like it for a little snack, what, in your opinion is the best brand of yogurt to get? When I say "best", i guess the most nutritious!I'm up for trying anything and would be nice to hear what you guys get :)
