Good question... I dunno what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
:) Good post... yup.
The flavored ones like the plague... higher carb, higher fat, added sugars too..
Frozen, defrosted fruit and a squirt of SF Torani Syrup and you have something even yummier..
I am currently addicted to this:.
With sliced apple for dipping, a super breakfast and ummm errr keeps you LOL regular if you know what I mean ;)..
My breakfast is usually about 1/2 cup of the 0 or 2% fage plain yogurt with a touch of vanilla SF syrup, 1 packet of splenda, fruit (whatever is in season my current favorite is apples chopped up with.
Or apple pie spice) and some Bear Naked high protein granola. YUM! I did a lot of peach in the summer and berries and.
, and well any fruit I have on hand. If I don't have fresh I do frozen or canned in water or fruit juice. But I like fresh or frozen best. I have even put pumpkin in it with some splenda and pumpkin pie spice. It is pretty good too!.
Last night I used the yogurt and a squeeze of light mayo and added some Fox Point seasoning (from penzey's one of my favorite blends of theirs) and used it on my fish as a kind of tartar sauce. There is so much you can do with the plain yogurt you don't need the fruit and sugar of the other stuff!.
Don't forget you can make your own greek yogurt by straining regular yogurt...
I have loved Greek yogurt since prior to having GBS (18 months ago now). Like, Eggface and Laura, I have my favorite ingredients to make it satisfying to me..
A main staple for me is 1/2c fat free yogurt , dash of.
, 1 tbsp toffee flavored Torani syrup, 1 tbsp. chopped walnuts or almonds, 1 tbsp currants (which taste just like raisins, but are smaller, so you get more per serving)..
Laura, I love your idea of kind of a tartar sauce idea...
I LOVE greek yogurt. I do the flavored Chobani w/0% fat, and about 140 cal on the average, 14-15g of protein. I live on the stuff!.
Have you tried the new Dannon one? Hard tofind but 15 grams of protien and only 80 colories! It is my staple now!..
I have tried a few of the different greek yogurts and I decided it is an acquired taste, that hasn't been acquired by me yet. I did try the Dannon Greek Yogurt and I couldn't get past the after taste that reminded me of licking dirty socks. Not that I actually lick dirty socks.. but uhm yeah. Lol...
Thanks for the correction. I thought, what the heck is green yogurt!! I only buy the plain and actually mix in protein powder for extra flavor and protein. I have also added fruit and the Torani syrup. I also found fiber enhanced Splenda that I sometimes use, but don't really need that most of the time...
