The health benefits of Greek Yogurt

In her new book, The Greek Yogurt Kitchen: More Than 130 Delicious, Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Day, Toby shows readers how to cut back on fat and calories without compromising flavor. She shares how Greek yogurt is one of today’s most versatile and nourishing ingredients and how it can be used in unexpected ways, making even the most bad-for-you foods healthier, tastier and more satisfying.

Greek yogurt has many nutrition and health benefits. It can have less lactose and twice the amount of protein of traditional yogurt and can you help meet the recommended 3 daily servings of dairy. In addition Greek yogurts contain live, active cultures which can help make yogurt a more easily digestible alternative to milk. Additionally, it contains calcium to help build strong bones… The versatility of Greek yogurt is endless. But this thick, creamy yogurt is more than just for breakfast or a snack.
