Which yogurt should you buy?

Not Light yogurts because most “light” yogurts are loaded with artificial sweeteners and/or high fructose corn syrup. Not “fat free” because fat isn’t bad.  Fat is a critical nutrient to your brain, hormone health and your fat loss efforts. Most fat-free yogurts are LOADED with sugar so that they taste good.

I recommend Organic Plain Greek Yogurt. Greek yogurt has double the protein of regular yogurt, and when you eat the plain variety you avoid all the extra, unnecessary, artificial ingredients along with the added sugar. Organic is important to buy so you avoid the hormones and antibiotics. Try Greek Yogurt for lunch or dessert. I know Yogurt is not on the Paleo Diet but it lends itself more towards the Mediterranean Diet followers.
Example recipe of items to mix in:
1.5 cups organic plain Greek yogurt
1 scoop UltraMeal protein powder (Metagenics) – (Chocolate or Strawberry is really good)
Berries – can be frozen blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, etc
1 tablespoon crunchy almond butter
1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
1 ounce of walnuts or pecans
