13. Greek Yogurt: 10g Protein (20% DV)
Greek yogurt has become famous in recent years thanks to its higher protein content when compared to ordinary yogurt. The protein helps keep you feeling satisfied, and also makes for a better choice for those looking to build lean muscle, while still losing fat.
Greek yogurt has a thicker consistency than regular yogurt, as the whey has been removed through a straining process, which is why it is also referred to as strained yogurt. For protein aficionados the protein in Greek yogurt is casein protein rather than whey protein as the whey has been strained out.
Like regular yogurt, Greek yogurt is a good source of probiotic bacteria. Just be sure to go with a Greek yogurt that isn’t loaded up with sugar in order to get the full benefits.
Tips for eating more: Greek yogurt can be eaten in much the same way that you’ve eaten regular yogurt in the past. Pack it as a snack for the day, or eat it at breakfast time along with fresh fruit. It also makes a smart substitute for sour cream.
