I’m a big fan of Greek yogurt. It’s high in protein, which helps keep your full longer. And it’s a great source of calcium, potassium, zinc, as well as vitamins B6 and B12. The texture is thick, creamy and seemingly indulgent.
At any given time, we have wide array of brands and flavors in our refrigerator. Large tubs of plain, non-fat Fage, Chobani Champion tubes for the kids’ lunch boxes and flavored, single-serving containers from any number of companies for snacks.
Previously, I had checked out the nutrition label Chobani single-serving containers and, frankly, wasn’t impressed. Recently, however, new packaging caught my attention. Maybe I missed them before, or maybe they’re new, but Chobani has a line called “Simply 100.”
The vanilla variety boasts:
- 100 calories
- 12g protein
- 5g fiber (20% of the recommended daily value)
- 7g sugar (only about 1g more than a same size of Fage’s plain non-fat)
- 0g fat
- Natural ingredients
My store carries four varieties: Blueberry, Vanilla, Back Cherry and Pineapple. Apparently, they also make Strawberry and Peach. The packaging is quite similar to their “regular” single-serving containers, so select carefully. Thus far, I’ve sampled the blueberry and vanilla, and give them both a thumbs up!
Note for Weight Watchers followers: according to my scanner, all four varieties are 2P+ each.
