What’s in my Kitchen? Fage Greek yogurt

Over the next couple weeks I will be writing a series of blogs on what items in my kitchen I cannot live without and why I would never want to be without them.  If you have questions, I’ve got answers!  Post your comments below and I’ll get back to you right away!

2% Fage Plain Greek Yogurt
I love this stuff.  Greek yogurt is versatile tasty and is chuck full of protein and calcium.  I heavily favor Fage brand greek yogurt because it has the creamiest texture and the most mild flavor.  There are other quality brands of Greek Yogurt on the market – just be sure and check the label. Some brands use additives to create a creamy texture, so make sure the ingrident list does not look like a chemistry project.  One serving of this yogurt has 25 grams of protein and 20% DV of calcium for only 150  calories.  Did someone say nutrient dense?  I eat Fage every morning for breakfast with a half a serving of defrosted frozen blueberries, raw almonds, a dash of cinnamon and a packet of Stevia.  In addition to being a great breakfast, Greek yogurt can be used to make healthful desserts and in savory dishes as well.  I have included a few links to some of my favorite recipes.  Do you have a favorite brand of Greek Yogurt?  Please tell me what it is and where to find it!
