Greek is king


Greek yogurt is creamy, slightly tart, thick goodness. I tried it for the first time a couple years ago and have been hooked ever since. Regular yogurt now seems runny and weak and I am very uninterested in its fruit-on-the-bottom offerings; I must state for the record, though, that in the case where Greek style is not available, I still pick up Yoplait for nostalgia's sake. I'm not sure how nutritious it is (especially considering their flavors like Key Lime Pie), but I used to eat a ton of Cherry Orchard and Strawberry Banana growing up, so it takes me back a bit.

Anyway, back to the above. This bowl of fruit and yogurt was a pristine way to start my day compared to last night's spicy dinner (of which no pictures because while it tasted great, its monochromatic look did not photograph well). I was inspired by Heather's Squid, Chickpea and Chorizo Salad post, but leaving the red peppers and parsley out was a mistake. Also, mine was less a salad as a quick stew of sorts on top of which I added Tabasco hot sauce. I'm sure I'll make it again and hopefully put up a photo then.

I will have to try Greek yogurt...

It's a wonder to me why so many people don't choose fresh foods over sodium packed processed ones...

Fresh is definitely the way to go for the best possible flavor....

Yes, please do try Greek yogurt, although maybe start with a small container as the texture might throw you off.

I eat a good amount of processed food, but try to offset as much as possible with fresh stuff!
