We hope you enjoyed last week's tour of the yogurt section!
In the coaching tip and video, we mentioned how healthy yogurt can be (loaded with protein, calcium and beneficial bacteria)!
This is especially true when you buy plain nonfat yogurt (with simple ingredients like nonfat milk and live active cultures), and then add other healthy ingredients to transform it into some delicious and nutritious meals!
As promised, this week we want to provide inspiration on some excellent ways to enjoy yogurt...everything from sauces to dressings, sweet to savory, breakfast to dinner...and, of course, some incredibly delectable desserts!
First, check out this video to see how easy it is to prepare our Dreamy Fruit 'n Nutty Salad using your favorite plain yogurt.
It's so simple, you hardly even need a recipe!
There are SO MANY MORE ways to incorporate your favorite yogurt into your meals! You can type "yogurt" in the search bar or try some of these flavor-loaded ideas:
Middle Eastern Nachos (the refreshing Tzatziki sauce completes this meal, which always gets rave reviews!)...a few other ideas to enjoy Tzatziki sauce include Feta Stuffed Lamb Burgers, Greek Style Quinoa Bowls and Mediterranean Meatball Gyros!
