Greek Yogurt Questions
I've been eating fruit about 2-4 times a week, nuts about 1-2 times a week, and mostly lots of summer squash, okra, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, leafy greens, pork, some steak, chicken, rabbit, and fish, as well as eggs and coconut oil for the... (more)
I just tried Kefir fir the first time. The bottle says 15 billion per serving. I normally use chobani greek yogurt. (I don't have a tub in front of me, but I don't remember if it ever mentioned counts). So, what has more probiotic power? (Kefir... (more)
Has anyone else noticed that Fage Total now has half the fat? I thought at first I could still find the 20g fat/serving stuff at Whole Foods and for some reason they had the 10g fat/serving stuff at a different store - they still have the 20g fat... (more)
HA! I was just dealing with this issue this morning while hunting for a full fat greek yoghurt - I have snack duty this week for my daughter's preschool class and was asked to bring a container of ranch dip. I wanted to make Mark's Daily Apple's... (more)
Ever since I committed to a mostly Paleo diet one of I've been eating goat yogurt regularly and grass fed butter regularly with pretty good results. Recently though, after hearing many people rave about greek yogurt (and seeing what seems to be a... (more)
Hmm.. I wonder if it's because they strain Greek yogurt so its a more concentrated product? Protein levels would be higher than the Goat I would think. There are specific proteins, alpha-casein, alpha s1-casein and beta-casein, that are known to... (more)
I've been eating Paleo for 3 1/2 weeks now. I am not ultra militant about it. I eat about 4 sweet potatoes a week and some form of fruit everyday.(Of course I eat meat every dinner). I lost 15 lbs so far but I was such a crappy food eater that I'm... (more)
There is a new greek yogurt on the market that just came out recently and I want to hear some opinions on it. It comes with different fruit flavors, but other than the plain one, they should be all avoided because the flavor is made with stuff... (more)
My local shop was out of greek yogurt last week so I started to use sour cream for my dessert. I mix half a cup of yogurt and a spoon of cocoa so the original yogurt/sour cream taste is pretty much overwhelmed by the aroma of cocoa. Flavor is... (more)
What are your thought on Fage 2% vs. total? I know the paleo community is insane about 'full-fat'... for good reason sometimes. And I'm afraid just asking this question will give me a bunch of... (more)
I usually have a bowl of Fage Total Greek yoghurt after my meals and managed to get hold of some vanilla beans which smell amazing, i thought I would combine the 2 and have some delicious creamy vanilla greek yoghurt. I split the bean and... (more)
Vanilla beans really need to be extracted with something, like alcohol or simmering in a liquid. If you're okay with the tiny bit of alcohol in an extract, you can do this yourself at home with your nice beans and some vodka, rum, bourbon, etc. ... (more)
I've heard of people easily making home made Greek yogurt and kefir, and I was wondering whats the best way to start or a good source of the active cultures for both? I do live in VA so I can't buy raw milk but I can get grass fed organic whole... (more)
I've been paleo for a few months now -- not to lose weight, but to maintain and get off the carb rollercoaster. I've never been overweight; in fact, I'm very lean. I'm 5'9 and can happily subsist on 1200-1400 calories a day. I'm pretty much... (more)
Greek yogurt is very low calorie and filling. I find I can eat as much of as I want without gaining weight. Just like Cottage cheese. I'm usually full after about 5-6 spoonfuls though! just my n=1, however.
Not a hypothetical "anyone out there", I mean any of YOU fellow PHers of course. Simple question, does anyone consume a LOT of dairy and not just tolerate it but actually seem to thrive on it? And I don't just mean dairy fats like HWC, butter and... (more)
What are your thoughts on high-fat dairy products? I'm currently eating a lot of Greek yogurt (almost daily) as well as occasional milk and cheese; should I eliminate these things from my diet temporarily, then reincorporate them to test my... (more)
I personally like high-fat dairy in my diet. Because of my celiac disease, I was supplementing probiotics to try to heal, when in fact I could get the same cultures from Greek yogurt. So I think it's worth considering including something if it has... (more)
Aside from it not being classical paleo food, is there anything that is not great about it? It's around 80% saturated fat, and the stuff I buy (jalna) is organic.
I'd like to add greek yogurt to my diet, but I'm a bit concerned that A. is it really pale? B. what about the sugar? one carton of chobani's greek yogurt has something like 30+ grams of sugar, however, i remember reading that this is the sugar... (more)
Do you agree with paleo-censorship?
