Ingredient of The Week: Greek Yogurt

We're big fans of Greek yogurt; it's delicious on it's own and can be used as a subsitute for high-fat ingredients such as sour cream and milk. Greek yogurt has almost double the protein from other yogurts, which makes it an ideal snack for your post-workout grub. It's also a great source of probiotics - which help with digestion, skin and strengthening your immune system. Another major benefit is that it's said to help flatten the belly! Dr. Zemel explains that when you eat yogurt, the calcium signals your fat cells to product less cortisol, making it easier to drop pounds while the amino acids help burn fats. So... DIG IN!
