Good Morning All! So after a day of tracking my food and trying to stay below my RDI - I realized that my Yoplait Original yogurt has like 33grams of carbs!! Though I'm not really doing a "low carb" diet, I'm trying to keep everything in moderation and that just seems ridiculous. I love yogurt, including the greek goodness but I was just wondering if anyone has any opinions on what the healthiest yogurt on the market is? Obviously the Yoplait brand has a bunch of processed stuff so I think I may stay away from it. In any event - let me know your thoughts!!! Its a great mid day snack, I would hate to have to give it up! Very Happy

I'm a fan of Chobani brand Greek yogurt personally.

I eat the Yoplait light, and the main reason is because to me, it just tastes the best. I've tried all sorts of other brands, including hopping on the Greek yogurt bandwagon, and I absolutely hate it because the texture of it just reminds me of Elmer's glue. It's chalky, gloppy and gross (to me.) I'm the kind of person that's not overly concerned with "processed" stuff, if what I'm eating doesn't taste good, then I'm not going to eat it. I'd rather eat processed food that tastes good and actually be able to stay on the diet.

I do not know where you are but the kroger stores have a carb control yogurt tha is great. My family eats it as our regular yogurt, the taste is better than any others we have tried. Hope this helps.

I agree that the Greek yogurt is too creamy and thick. I eat low fat plain yogurt, the night before i add to one cup , 1/2 cup of berries. but even that adds up to 24gms of carbs. But at least it's good clean carbs with no additives, colouring or preservatives or other chemicals they put in them. If you're not on low carb, such as Atkins induction, don't worry about it.
If it is a plant, eat it, if it comes from a plant, don't!
