I wanted to tell all about this awesome food I've discovered in my experiments to find something that's on my diet, but still tastes good. Fage, "greek" yogurt (really it's more like turkish or lebanese yogurt but called greek so american's won't be scared off) is a condensed yogurt that is SUPER rich and creamy, with really high protein content. I buy the "0% Fat" variety and it's still super creamy and quite tasty. It can be be used as a sweet or savory food, used with fruit or as a sour cream substitute (no really, it doesn't taste like yogurt on a potato, its actually just as good as sour cream!). Here are my four favorite ways to eat it:
1. Breakfast 1. FAGE, blueberries, rasberries, done.
2. Breakfast 2. FAGE, a couple spoonfuls of almond butter, delicious, earthy, sweet.
3. Dinner 1. Chicken cooked on a foreman grill, heavily spiced with chill powder, pepper, garlic powder, little salt, and louisiana hot sauce. put chicken on top of an undressed salad. mix FAGE with chopped cucumber and some parsley and pepper, throw it on top (I like to douse with hot sauce too). better than a buffalo chicken salad but HEALTHY
4. Dinner 2. Turkey cheese burger, lettuce, tomato (no bread-knife and fork!!), fage on top like mayo, and then add hot sauce to taste
seriously guys, girls, this FAGE stuff is a miracle food. taste's light and easy in the morning, then tastes like something you shouldn't be eating in a dinner (i.e. sour cream, or ranch, or mayo), and yet you're getting nothing but good protein!
Buy it, you'll like it.
have any other recipes? please tell me, i'm always looking to mix things up (bored dieter becomes a failing dieter)
