Which Greek Yogurt is best for us?
Please note: I AM NOT A DOCTOR. If you want medical advice, talk to your doctor. Whatever I post, there is probably some surgeon or other health care provider somewhere that disagrees with me. If you want to know what your surgeon thinks, then ask him or her. Check out my blog.
Make sure you check the labels :)

The one that is probably best for us is whichever one has the highest protein for the lowest amount of calories.
I try and follow an overall eating rule of 10 calories to 1 gram of protein, so I won't eat any of the flavored greek yogurts that don't meet that ratio. My favorite in the flavored is the Voskos brand. Most of their blended fruit flavors meet my 10:1 ratio.
Doing the 0% fat plain will always be the best bet as long as you can tolerate the taste. I find it is a good substitute for sour cream and I like to make savory dips out of it. Hidden Valley Ranch powder mixes in well with it.

My friend mixes it with cocoa powder and splenda--chocolate.. I havent tried this.
I've tried every greek yogurt on the market, Chobani is the only I like.
