Greek yogurt is a nutrition hero: It’s packed with almost twice as much protein as regular yogurt. According to Good Housekeeping’s Nutrition Director and expert,
Stefani Sassos, “Greek yogurt is a good and often excellent source of protein, calcium and other essential nutrients. Many also contain probiotics, but you’ll want to look for probiotics listed on the label. It provides a versatile base for a nutrient-dense snack or meal.” Low-fat or even fat-free Greek yogurt is also considered a low-calorie food that’ll fill you up (cals aren’t everything when it comes to nutrition, but yogurt happens to have a low number while still providing essential nutrients). In addition to a nourishing go-to, Greek yogurt can also be a satisfying sweet snack (especially if you freeze it for a delicious frozen dessert).
