Now I'm discovering how useful Greek yogurt is in recipes! It replaces so many other, non-nutritional items. I'm a big Fage fan, but I think I might try making my own (it hadn't occurred to me until visiting this board)!

Mmmm I love Greek yogurt, it's my little piece of Heaven.

I haven't tried quinoa other than on a bread a buy. I took a look at a bag of the stuff and it was $15! Greek yogurt is already almost double the amount of money as reg. yogurt and I'm not made of money, lol. ;)

I can't remember what I snacked on before yogurt! Love my Greek yogurt in the morning with cereal, and my morning super thick yogurt snack!

I LOVE greek yogurt too! Especially with some berries and mixed nuts. YUM! Even better than ice cream.

Well, I ate sweet potatoes (REAL ones and not canned or with marshmallows!) and homemade soups since I was a wee lass! But didn't have Quinoa or Greek yogurt until recent years. emoticon

Love yogurt of all kinds, quinoa I plan to eat more of and introduce it to hubby, sweet potatoes (NOT out of a can with syrup!) have become a staple. Gone are the days of most all meals consisting of something that came out of a box or can!

I've tried several Greek yogurts and always return to FAGE. However, I just bought Aldi's Greek yogurt and I think it is giving FAGE a run for its money! I love using the plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream.

i will agree on the quinoa and the homemade soup, but I have to forego anything dairy. haven't done dairy in over 2 years and can't say that I miss it.
