New Food Favorite

So I have succumbed to the Greek yogurt craze.

Yes, it lives up to the hype & then some. Fage, the brand pictured above, is particularly good: creamy, VERY thick, and rich. The fat free is the only type I have ever and it is excellent. Tomorrow I am making a trip to Trader Joe's since their own Greek yogurt is rumored to be as good as Fage.

My favorite way to enjoy this treat is with a small spoonful of homemade bing cherry jam. The sweet jam offsets the tangy of the yogurt.

Here are the stats on (1 cup of) Fage (taken from the back of my container):

Fat: 0 g
Sat. Fat: 0g
Trans Fat: 0g
Calories: 120
Carbs: 9g
Sugars: 9g
Protein: 20g!!!!

The only downside is the significant cost in comparison to regular yogurt. Crossing my fingers that Costco sells a bulk-sized container.

We rang in 2011 with a group of friends. Looking forward to all the ways that we will be awash in wonder, beauty and love this year. For my praying friends, remember my Grandma. She is not doing very well and is currently in ICU. My mom & Aunt Betty traveled to see her today.

Coming etsy store!!

  1. I have a handful of friends who are nuts about that too. There are some good brands, Onken and Rachel's Organic, that I'll have to keep an eye out for clearance prices (meaning they will expire in a day or two) because they are rather pricey.
