The good, the bad, and the fattening

Jamie, I'm posting this with you in mind. I recently discovered this Greek yogurt when I was at JFK heading to BDA, and loved, loved, loved it. Like, lick the cup good. Slap your momma good.

So I almost did a cartwheel at my local grocery store when I saw they started carrying it. LOL.
It's authentic strained Greek style yogurt, and instead of tasting like the bottom of a sour skim milk carton, it has the consistency of soft-serve ice cream and is just as rich tasting. Personally, I could enjoy it with nothing added, but they do make single serve pack with cherry or honey for mixing in (which is what I had at the airport.)

Fage Authentic Greek Yogurt

A full cup has 120 calories, 0% fat, 9 g net carbs, and 20 g of protein.

El, Linds, and Georgia Peach it's at Roche's over by the fresh pastas across from the bakery. :)

Ok, switching gears to Halloween candy. I bought 8 pounds of it yesterday. Ask me how much got eaten between 3:00PM and midnight.


*** UGH! all I wanted to do was put a stupid candy poll up and it's taken 4 tries at three different sites and it still won't work. Grrrr

oooh, thanks G - you know me and my love of all foods mediterranean well. I LOVE greek yogurt!

I have to go to Ft. Lauderdale next month for work, and Florida's only redeeming quality is my little hole-in-the-wall Greek place on the beach. Everyone that works there is Greek, and related, and the food is orgasmic.

20 grams of protein is not too shabby.

(unfortunately, I am not a fan of yogurt)
