This yogurt is loaded with protein (17 grams = 24%). My favorite is the peach, but I also like blueberry and caramel! Also, it is only 90 calories. Jewel and Walmart sell it. The Dannon Greek yogurt is good too, but it doesn't have as much protein as Oikos.

If you're like me, you have trouble getting enough protein, but you love your carbs. Try switching out regular yogurt with the Greek kind. Fat free, still some good flavors, and usually double the protein of the regular stuff!
Oikos & Yoplait are two big companies that make some good varieties of Greek yogurt.
I use Oikos or Fage plain Greek yogurt (1 C), & add 1 tsp of real vanilla extract, two packets of Splenda, & 2 tbsp of Polaner Sugar-Free Strawberry Preserves with Fiber. It stirs up into a very thick, yummy, satisfying dessert with very high protein, low carbs, and low calories.
Oikos and Fage, in that order, are the two yogurts with the highest protein and lowest carbs.
I mixed mustard into low fat Greek yogurt to eat along with meat, sandwiches and wraps. To replace thousand island dressing, I mixed half a teaspoon of ketchup into yogurt. When eating seafood, I mixed a little wasabi into 2 tablespoon of Greek yogurt and use as sauce. It helps me to increase my protein intake while reducing carbs and fats.
