Greek yogurt is not the same as the regular yogurt. Even if it contains more fat compared to the regular yogurt, Greek yogurt is packed with nutrients and is the considered to be the King of Yogurts.
First off, Greek yogurt contains probiotics. It is helpful for the digestive tract. Second, it is a dairy food and with that it is a good source of magnesium, potassium and calcium. Third, Greek yogurt is a protein food too – 200% protein compared to the regular ones. It will make you feel satiated for a longer period of time.
Lastly, Greek yogurt may have more calories or have a higher fat content compared to the regular ones but it is tasty and will be a great substitute for buttermilk, sour cream or cream cheese when cooking. You will be eating fat; at least it is the good and healthy fat.
Note: Don’t eat low-fat or nonfat yogurt. It may be less in calories but it is very high in sugar and preservatives. It is not healthy at all.
