Yogurt Bowl 4 Ways

Nutrition Tips

Every time I visit the yogurt aisle at the grocery store, I feel like I see something new! The selections have grown so much in recent years. There are different types of yogurt such as Greek, Icelandic Skyr, Australian, French, and traditional. Yogurt is a source of protein, probiotics, calcium, and potassium. Not all yogurts contain the same amount of protein or nutrients, so let’s chat about a few tips on how to choose.  

Nutrition tips on choosing yogurt:

  • Look for yogurt with higher amounts of protein. Most strained yogurts, such as Greek and Icelandic, are going to have more protein. As a key macronutrient, protein helps keep us full longer and builds and repairs muscle tissue. It’s also important for post-workout recovery nutrition.
  • Choose yogurts with live and active cultures for gut health. On the label, it should say live and active cultures near the ingredient list. Probiotics are good gut-friendly bacteria that promote a healthy digestive system and immune system.
  • Be mindful of added sugars in yogurt. Take a look at the added sugar to protein ratio. Try to choose yogurts with more protein than added sugar most of the time. If you’re buying flavored yogurt, a good rule of thumb is the grams of protein and grams of sugar should be fairly close together or the grams of protein should be higher.

Here are 4 ways to top your yogurt bowl!
