So I tried some plain nonfat greek yogurt and I LOVE it!! But I am unsure how to use it in my meals ...My yogurt has 6g carbs, and 15g Protein. What can I add to this to make it a complete meal (20/20 or close to)???Thanks!!
Greek yogurt is a great option. It depends on for which meal to some degree. You can add berries to make it more complete and just don't add a full portion, but in other words, even it out. If for meal 6 you can then have your meal be more protein heavy by not adding anything.
I would get the larger container though to make your portion larger than the 6 and 15.

Oh ... I never thought of just adding MORE yogurt and then some carbs (berries) that make since.
However I don't understand what you mean by it depends on which meal?? What difference does it make if its meal 1, 4, or 6?? Can you elaborate because I thought all meals were pretty much the same?? Did I get something wrong?
Thanks Mighty Max!! ;-)
You are most welcome!
You got NOTHING wrong. There are people who prefer fewer carbs with meal 6 and Greek yogurt provides a good solution for that. I don't know if there's good evidence for or against it. Keep doing what you're doing because it works.
Thanks lady!! You are always there to help!! :) Have a wonderful night!
I cut up a cucumber, tomato and chop some grill chicken breast, mix in a bowl with the greek yogurt, add some pepper to taste and throw it in a whole weath tortilla and you have lunch!
that sounds really good
That does sound really good ... add some garlic and it would be like greek cucumber dip!! YUMM!!
Oh that sounds really good. I may try that. I didn't know I liked greek yogurt until I started the challenge. I mix it with some low fat cottage cheese also and dip apple slices in it, got that reciped for a previous champion...yum
use it in place of sour cream. I had chicken tacos the other night and I couldn't even tell the difference!
Also meal 6, I like the yogurt with just a touch of honey, and a couple chopped walnuts and berries.
I don't prefer the taste of plain Greek yogurt so I found an odd, but good solution. Syntrax brand whey protein in twisted cherry flavor. I mix a scoop in with my yogurt and it's actually good. It looks gross, but tastes fine.
I actually put 1/3 cup (that comes with the bag) of the chocolate whey protien in my yogurt and oh my goodness gracias isn't that heavenly?? It's like a wonderful strawberry chocolate yogurt something that I take AT LEAST 15 minutes to eat. I savor it. BUT if you don't use protien shakes then that wouldn't work for you :) I usually eat it as my second or fourth meal. When it's my 6th meal I don't add anything.
You can choose the pain of discipline or the pain of regret...
Excellent ideas! Glad you posted about this!
