Is Greek yogurt really better for you?……….

While regular yogurt tends to have fewer calories and more calcium, Greek yogurt has more protein and less sugar — and a much thicker consistency. Both types pack probiotics and support digestion, weight loss, and heart health.

 

Greek yogurt is considered a superfood partly because it provides more protein than regular yogurt. A 170 gram (six ounce) serving of Greek yogurt has just as much protein as 85 grams (three ounces) of lean meat, which makes it a great alternative source of protein.

Mashed Potatoes……………..

Add cream cheese to your mashed potatoes so they are extra creamy. Add boursin cheese for potatoes that rich, creamy, and lighter in calories. Add a teaspoon of Wasabi powder for spicy Japanese style potatoes. Mash your potatoes with Greek yogurt to make a healthier version that is still creamy and tangy. You can also add minced garlic or garlic powder which enhances potatoes, especially when followed by a healthy sprinkling of shredded cheese. Bottled ranch dressing or dry ranch dressing mix offers a zesty kick. Other favorites are dill, chives and crumbled bacon. Enjoy those Mashed Taters!

Healthy Banana Recipes
Find healthy, delicious banana recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Peanut Butter-Banana Frozen Yogurt Cake
This grown-up version of ice cream cake is a little sweet and a little salty. The yogurt cake gets its distinct flavor from freeze-dried banana slices–they can be pulverized into a powder (unlike regular dried bananas, which have a chewy texture)……………………….

Coconut Banana Cream Pie
Can’t decide between coconut cream and banana cream? In this simple recipe, we’ve combined two delicious desserts into one, so you don’t have to choose! The creamy coconut filling spooned over luscious ripe bananas in an oil-based pastry crust makes for a dessert that’s surprisingly low in fat……………………………….

Peanut Butter, Banana and Bacon Overnight Oats
We’ve taken classic Elvis-sandwich flavors–banana, bacon and peanut butter–and stirred them into easy overnight oats in this healthy breakfast recipe. Make a bunch of jars at the beginning of the week for ready-when-you are morning meals all week long…………………………..

Healthy cooking hints……………….

To save on fat and calories, use low-fat plain yogurt in place of sour cream or mayonnaise, and buy low-fat cheese and milk instead of full-fat versions, says O’Rourke. Add flavor to vegetables with low-fat cheese, nuts, salad dressing or margarine with no trans fat; then add herbs and spices. Blatner suggests an Italian blend on green beans, curry on cauliflower, cumin on sauteed bell peppers, and lemon pepper on broccoli.
