I use Face non fat/plain greek yogurt. There is no sugar in it. I think it's like 22-24 g. protein. I put frozen fruit in it and blend it into a smoothie. I add ground flaxseed and cinnamon.

I've been using Truvia lately. It's not as sweet as a lot of other non-sugar sweeteners so I end up putting 2 packets in my tea instead of one sweet 'n low but I think it's healthier because it contains less chemicals. After being married to two diabetics, one type 2 and one type 1, one totally out of control and the other maintaining really good control I pretty much have a good idea of what works and what to avoid.

Sounds good. We don't have FAGE GREEK YOGURT here so I'll have to check the ones we do have. Thanks for the sugar alert as I am diabetic also but can't use diet products only Splenda. All the others give me severe migranes.

I agree the FAGE is the best yogurt and I get it at COSTCO. I add fresh fruit to it and it is a great snack. Also I use low-sodium Peanut Butter on a Rice Cake for snack too.

Greek Yogurt has a much higher protein content than regular yogurt, at least the one's I've looked at do. You have to watch the sugar content though because it's also been my observation that often that is higher. My husband is a type 1 diabetic so I look carefully at ingredients not only for myself but for him. The "best" Greek yogurt I've found so far is called FAGE Total 0% Greek Yogurt, 1 cup has 23 grams of protein, 9 grams of sugar and no fat. It evidently comes in several flavors but in the small town where I live the only one they carry is plain. I'm not a fan of plain yogurt but it isn't too bad if I add a little fruit. Some of the brands I looked at had 33 grams of sugar! Big difference.

yogurt is a good snack but you must read the calorie and fat content to make sure your not eating the wrong kind Everyone keeps telling me to use Greek yogurts.
