If you can eat plain yogurt it is the best choice if the ingredients are simple - you have to watch because some add things that are not beneficial or needed.
The best choice to sweeten it would be fresh fruit if your plan allows it.
Agave, while low glycemic, is still basically a sugar. A normal serving has 60 calories and 15gms of sugar.
Many people don't like artificial sweeteners because some people do react to them in varying ways. Some people have a brief rise in blood sugar until the body recognizes that it is not sugar, especially diabetics. But there are other artificial sweeteners that apparently don't have this effect if chemicals aren't a problem for you.
It becomes a lifestyle decision. I'm not a huge fan of yogurt but my M.D. wants me to eat it it daily. I can't stomach plain yogurt so I buy a low carb yogurt even though it has some ingredients in it I don't like. It's the only one I will eat.
I do not consider Dannon Light and Fit a great choice. As I recall it's more acclimated to low fat diets.
As far as the salsa check the carb and sugar content and the ingredients. Many add sugar or other starchy ingredients.
