Hello everyone! Today’s post is fitness-inspired and if you are like me, then we might have a similar story. So today is about eating protein-rich plain Greek yoghurt which tastes amazing. I didn’t include it in my diet until I started my fitness journey as i preferred sweeter things like ice cream, cake etc. All that changed when I started my fitness journey. I included more protein-rich foods like greek yoghurt.
As a fitness enthusiast, yoghurt is one of my favourite ways to get protein. My go-to was having flavoured protein yoghurts but I eventually got tired of the flavours. Looking at the labels, a lot of the flavours have a high amount of sugar in them and/or have artificial flavours which I want to avoid when possible.
A few months back I decided to ditch the flavoured artificial yoghurts and started having the much healthier option which is greek yoghurt. Over the past few months, I’ve tried enjoying it in various ways and I’ve put a little post about it below.
How to eat plain Greek Yogurt
Add Honey/Maple Syrup or any sweet sugar free sweetner
Honey is my favourite topping! A little bit goes a long way too. For me, I like to add about 5g of honey per 120g of yoghurt, perfect sweetness with the added benefits of the honey.
I also like to use MyProtein flava drops as they have zero calories and pack a punch in flavour.
Add some delicious fruit
There are many options you can add here, be adventurous! I enjoy sliced pineapple, strawberries or cotton candy flavoured grapes, it can be canned, frozen or fresh. It adds sweetness and is also part of your 5 a day, which is helpful.
Drizzle nut butter
I love peanut butter or even almond butter. Nut butter is a great way of adding healthy fats to your diet.
Find one you like
They are many choices out there, finding one you like makes a huge difference. I love thick and creamy yoghurt and Fage is all of that so it’s my favourite, so yummy! They are many options out there, read the label and see what works for you.
Now the list here is endless! Oats are wonderful as they are a great source of fibre and add a lovely texture to the yoghurt. Other things you could add are choc chips, granola or chia seeds.
You can make a fair amount of things with greek yoghurt. You can make a bark, marinade or a base of many protein recipes such as pancakes.
I hope this post inspired you

Until next time
