A Cultural Revolution: How to Choose a Healthy Cup of Yogurt

I was staying at a friend’s house recently and she showed me her new favorite snack—the Greek Gods honey yogurt. It was rich and creamy alright, but it packed in 250 calories plus half the saturated fat that she needed in a day.

I explained to her that Greek yogurt is strained and should be thick and creamy, but choosing nonfat or low-fat varieties will provide all the creamy flavor without all the heart-stopping saturated fat.

When I went to the supermarket last week to find the Greek Gods for myself, I noticed how many new brands were in the refrigerator. There are now several brands of Greek-style yogurt, as well as Swiss, Australian, and even Icelandic yogurt. There are nonfat, low-fat, full-fat, organic, and conventional cultures.
